Not sold on QBO yet? You can also scan receipts with your phone and upload them straight to QBO using their app. Simply snap a photo of the receipt and attach it to an expense or invoice.

There’s a time tracker, which ensures you will only be billed for the time spent on your books, or the time someone else spent on your books.
