Everything in your business can be branded — even your invoices. Putting your logo, brand colors, and other stuff on your invoice makes you stick out that much more in the customer’s mind. Not to mention that it’s satisfying to make your invoice really represent your company.
QuickBooks makes it easy to do that. You can personalize an invoice template with your logo and colors, then send it to your customers or clients in minutes.
Many types of businesses sell ongoing services. For example, a freelance writer might work on a monthly retainer for a client.
These businesses have to send out a similar invoice every month for the same amount, most of the time. It’s easy to forget, though, which is where QuickBooks’ recurring invoices come in handy. You handle the specifics, then QuickBooks makes sure the invoice goes out at your preferred date, every time.
Customer Quoting, Invoicing, and Payment Tracking
QuickBooks has a suite of quoting and invoicing features that make it easy to provide customers quotes, send custom invoices, and keep track of payments. You can set up recurring invoices, send payment reminders, track the status of specific client/customer payments.
QuickBooks lets you account for discounts, shipping, and taxes, making organization and recordkeeping easy.
Billable Hours Tracking
Work on an hourly basis? QuickBooks has built-in time tracking you can use to automatically track your hours worked and bill clients at the appropriate rate.
QuickBooks invoicing comes with plenty of types of notifications to keep you and your customers/clients on top of things.
On your side, QuickBooks will notify you when your customer or client views your invoice. Using this information, you can plan your invoice follow-ups if they’re taking longer to pay. You’ll also receive an alert in real-time when they pay.
On the client or customer’s side, you can automate late payment reminders to ensure they pay on time and keep your cash flows strong.
