Pros

It has a great interface which makes it feel very easy to use and has a great set of templates you can use from the beginning for various accounting needs.
For a small company as myself the excellent invoice features has been very helpful and useful.
FreshBooks combined with other applications is a great tool. In any case, if you want to create invoices and send it in a split second and then track and monitor its progress, I recommend FreshBooks.

Pros

I love this tool and highly recommend to use it. Easy, intuitive and just good working tool.
It's a great product helps me increase productive time and track how efficiently I am using time. I recommend everyone to use it.
I use Toggl Track for tracking just about everything from volunteer projects that I work on to my accounting business - I love how easy it is and the reporting is terrific for my needs.

Cons

We would lose all of that if we switched, so unfortunately we are stuck with having to use this horrible new format.
It is really frustrating to have a client not be able to pay through the invoice, and for this reason, only, I have been considering a new software company.
Tier based pricing from Lite to Premier is a bit confusing. WePay advocates having a Chase bank account for faster processing otherwise fails to integrate.

Cons

I have a way to measure how much time I spend on client projects because I hate to track time. For hourly projects, I was always cheating myself.
We wanted to become more co-ordinated and understand if we were hitting budgets and estimates, deadlines etc. This made it more disjointed than having no software.
Maybe if it had an audible alarm to alert you when closing out of a browser instead of leaving the timer on.

Great software for new and existing businesses

Reviewed 5 years ago

Free up more time to work in the business and spend less time on administrative work - like generating invoices and collecting payments.

Pros

Ability to see when customers view your invoices and forward invoices. I also like the ability to set up recurring invoices. For one-time and recurring invoices, customers can pay online via Stripe or other payment portals.

Cons

Cannot track expenses in multiple currencies. I have clients in the US and Canada. Expenses on one project can often be in two currencies. Since the system can't track multi-currencies, I track expenses in Excel.

FreshBooks

Excellent tool for small office

Reviewed 4 years ago

Interactions with the technical support team have been really truly great -- they make it clear that they're listening and are always cheerfully -- and competently -- responsive. This counts for a lot.

Pros

As a contractor paid by the hour, FreshBooks makes it easy for me to track time for multiple clients, gather the accumulated work into invoices, and send the invoices to the clients.

Cons

Before FreshBooks, I used Toggl and really liked Toggl's integration with the Chrome browser. My initial impressions of the FreshBooks equivalent was less than stellar, so I haven't been using the browser integration. Perhaps it's time I revisit that...

Saved my life!

Reviewed 6 years ago

As a freelancer graphic designer it has made keeping track of time and expenses almost effortless. My accountant also logs in and does my taxes. I used to use Excel for time tracking and billing and it took forever! All but one client use and appreciate the email billing system. Plus numbers are not really my thing so having Freshbooks to help with that part with reports has been wonderful.

Pros

expenses, billing, taxes

Cons

I wish I could keep track of mileage through Freshbooks.

Freshbooks just keeps improving.

Reviewed 3 years ago

I've grown, Freshbooks has grown; we've grown together over the years. Really no complaints - and a support team that other companies should model themselves after!

Pros

Ease of use, especially since the redesign, integrations with PayPal, etc. does save some time, integrated time tracker (although I still primarily use Toggl), makes book keeping - dare I say - fun? (Ok, as fun as it can be!). Great support - I've had timely replies every day of the week and after hours. Impressive!

Cons

I've had some integration issue (transactions not coming in, duplicates, etc.) but Support has always been helpful. They've offered to manually import transactions for me on more than one occasion. I'm on a paid tier but I'd have to pay more for some of the features I wouldn't mind trying out. Not in love with the subscription model, especially when many of the new features require higher tiers. Doesn't really make sense to be hooked up to an eCommerce platform given their tier limitations.

Especially great for freelancers and self employed

Reviewed 6 years ago

Been using Freshbooks for many years and has made invoicing clients, logging expenses, and filing taxes time super easy. The accountant login is great, I keep everything in Freshbooks and the accountant can view all the reports she needs. The Toggl integration for syncing billable hours is a time saving when creating hourly invoices.
