    Wife has formed a small LLC.

    Need to get her a laptop to use for the business along with an office suite.

    But I know nothing about small business software she could use for accounting/invoicing type stuff.

    Suggestions?

    Ask Steve. He is currently on vacation though. He'll tell you the best option to work with.

    Figured as much. QuickBooks is easy, but there is probably something better out there.

    Haha. I just saw the date. Wow. Coming up slow over here.

    I absolutely rate Xero
    https://www.xero.com
    Crazy easy to use and powerful.
    the MYOB I was using before is a childish clunky joke in comparison.

    So... what did y’all go with? I use something called iRatchet, it’s Mac only and geared for creative types of businesses. It’s not great, it’s really formtime tracking and invoicing. No real accounting features. But since my freelance stuff is side-hustle, it’s fine.

    I highly recommend Mr. Shtles’s advise, below:

    I might have a contact for you in this regard.

    She's using Excel to track incoming and outgoing's. Not enough volume to need anything else yet.
