- FreshBooks was purposely developed to be very easy to use accounting software for the non-accountant. While that means it may be super helpful to some businesses, it's certainly not for everybody. FreshBooks is really designed exclusively for client-service business owners; that's people who send invoices and get paid for their time and expertise. It's not for retail stores or restaurants or manufacturers. If you need to track inventory or have a point of sale system, or have complex reporting needs, FreshBooks probably won't be a great fit. On the other hand, if you're a freelancer or a small business, servicing customers and charging out time or fixed rates, FreshBooks will likely be a great solution.
If you've been sending out invoices and tracking your accounting manually in Word and Excel, FreshBooks will save you quite a bit of time. Now that we've determined that FreshBooks is a good fit, let's get signed up for an account.
