About QuickBooks Self Employed

One of my favorite resources for small business owners is QuickBooks Self Employed(QBSE). For a nominal fee, you are able to separate out your business expenses from personal, track mileage, track expenses, send invoices, and even estimate your quarterly and annual tax payments. At the end of the year QBSE will generate a Schedule C for your tax preparer. Did I mention there is a mobile app that you can use to take pictures of your receipts and track your actual miles driven? It really is an amazing little tool.

Once set up, you will have access to a dashboard that presents the health of your business:

From this screen, you are able to navigate to any area of your file to see more in-depth detail of the area you choose. So, say you want to see your tax estimates, you would navigate to the tax section and be able to view where you stand, so there are no surprises:

Imagine being able to bring your tax preparer a nice package that is ready for them to work on; no shoeboxes, no guessing, no digging for paperwork. What you save by having everything ready for your tax preparer can go right back into your business to help you grow. Or - use it to buy yourself a present as a reward for being so organized.
