Ever since I discovered Circula, payroll accounting as well as employee benefits expenses has never been easier. Its intuitive software has allowed me to manage expenses, capture expense receipts, and process travel expenses in a scalable and compliant manner. The software eases the burden of managing your business expenses thanks to its structured simplicity and intuitive and compliant app. Circula offers a user-friendly interface for financial and payroll accounting. Although it doesn't offer employee benefits (meal allowance, travel rewards, Internet allowance, and team incentives) as it does in Germany, this is a feature that I hope to see in the future. The scalable and flexible pricing plans are priced per license/per month and come with a free trial period. Prices start at €8.50 for the Basic version and €13.00 for the Professional. There is also a tailor-made Enterprise package with pricing on request.

This is an easy app for staff management and time-based invoices. The Invoicera cost is also not too large, especially for smaller companies. That being said, it can get a bit expensive and the lack of good, speedy support is a major letdown for Invoicera.

While it can be a bit pricey, the sheer number of excellent features offered by QuickBooks Online does help to push this software a bit ahead of the competition for me. Depending on the plan you choose, you can get a dedicated account team to help you out as well as enjoy mileage tracking, tax deductions, the ability to chase overdue invoices, and a whole lot more. Those more advanced features and access for multiple users only come with the highest plan though. It's still a great option for a small business especially if you want inventory tracking, to run payroll or even to approve timesheets. Yes, there are downsides including a bit of a sharp learning curve if you've never used accounting software before, but QuickBooks Online has some very helpful tutorials and a great support team on hand to help you out.

Getting started on invoicing and billing can be hard for a small business owner. Not only that, but it's not easy to fork out for an expensive program to keep track of payments and billing. This is why I really do like Zoho Invoice as it offers a completely free customer portal and service for expense management. There are Zoho apps available, and they are easy to use, integrating well with other features from the same software brand. On top of that, I found the entire process very easy. I was able to check my invoice history, add a payment gateway and use customizable templates quickly and easily. The fact that you can customize a lot of this is perfect for small businesses looking to be more professional and organized in the way they manage their billing. In short, Zoho Invoice makes things very easy and foolproof — not bad for a free platform!

For this Xero review, we used the software extensively and explored all of its features. We really liked the well-priced payment plans. However, we didn't like the limit on quotes and invoices in the Early plan. Although it's clearly stated on the plan and not just in the fine print, we felt it was a low limit for a small business. There's a lot to this software, including the 1000 other apps that can be integrated, so it takes a bit of learning. We liked the 24/7 support and video tutorials but were disappointed that there is no phone line to contact with queries. Overall, our team's Xero reviews came to the conclusion that this online accounting software has everything a growing business needs to manage its finances. It is flexible and customizable, with a wealth of features such as multi-currency processing.

As a small business owner, I've found SquareUp has a lot to offer as a payment processor. In terms of flexibility and being cheaper to use than some of the other options out there, this is a great choice. I liked that I could stick with the free basic version with its fixed flat rate fees for all transactions if I wanted to. But I also liked being able to switch to a paid plan where I could pick and choose from multiple add-on features, tailoring my plan (and the cost) to suit my business needs. Overall, this is a payment processing solution that's designed to be helpful. Give it a go!

Having used this software in our company for a few weeks, we really feel it has a lot going for it. First of all, it was very easy to integrate with other tools. The Integration tool is simple to use and quickly allowed us to bring various applications together. Another thing that really stood out about HourStack was that the interface is very easy to understand. Projects are laid out in calendar form, so it allows users to quickly get an overview of each project. Overall, we really liked this tool. It did help to streamline our projects and allowed the team to develop a more collaborative approach to projects.

The software also offers a lower-cost flex plan for organizations that do not schedule their entire team each week. Below are some pros and cons of this software.
