2020 Quickbooks Self-Employed Review: What You Need to Know

What is Quickbooks Self-Employed?

Even if you don’t recognize the name offhand, there’s a good chance you’ve at least heard of an Intuit product. The company is behind the TurboTax software you’ve likely seen on Costco displays each spring as well as their Quickbooks suite meant to aid small businesses with accounting. In that same vein, Quickbooks Self-Employed is a pared-down version of Quickbooks Online specifically aimed at sole proprietors like myself.

Final Review on Quickbooks Self-Employed

Having now gone through the whole tax process solo, I can honestly say I wouldn’t have been nearly as successful had I not invested in Quickbooks Self-Employed — it’s not a commercial, it’s just true. While I can’t say for sure how much I saved as a direct result of the software, I can tell you anecdotally that there were plenty of business transactions I came across I wouldn’t have given a second thought to had the software not brought them to my attention. Additionally, I’ve now learned just how helpful it is to have all of your business expense data in one place along with invoice tracking. In that aspect, while I mostly use it to help with my taxes, this could also be an important tool for freelancers looking to keep better track of their finances overall. Therefore, while the recent price hikes may be disappointing, I personally remain a Quickbook Self-Employed subscriber and have no plans to change that now.
