We use Quickbooks for the business and Quicken for personal. Tie Quickbooks with your checking account and the checks go out directly from the bank. It's an easy way to issue checks and keep track of your accounts...and the CPA loves it too!

No. But there are apps for that. Scannable for Iphones for example. Scan, then send to Evernote, your email, your bookkeeper, etc. Or, I can just go to our bank and ask for a printout of all checking activity.

Debe Maxwell, CRS  is the queen of organizing her expenses.  This is my weakness! I hate accounting and I drive my accountant crazy too! For Nestor's company - we use our business debit card to pay all the bills, I don't think we have written a check in several years. 

But the tracking is where I fail! I hate doing the expenses so I set a timer once a week for 20 minutes to get as much as I can organized to send to our accountant. 

For my new business, I am much better. I run my va company through PP which organizes everything for me. I can then just print the spreadsheets and email them to my accountant. I use it for invoicing so there is never a mistake on an invoice. I hired one of our vas to handle the bookkeeping now. 

Definately not my strength!

Quickbooks.

However, I advise hiring a specialist in Quickbooks to set your business system up and train. Not a bad idea to touch base with the specialist a couple times a year after going live.

A Quickbook specialist is the most frequent  service request of small business owners in my area.
