Invoice Customers On Jobsite With Smartphone Linked To QuickBooks Desktop Version Online Or Xero Accounting Online 

The Old Way Contractors Invoiced the jobs was sometimes just as much or more work than doing of the job itself.

In The Past You Had To make notes, collect customer information, go to your office, open QuickBooks or whatever construction accounting software you are using, wait for everything to load up and then try to find the paperwork, open the invoice screen and fill it out and if you were lucky you could email it from QuickBooks to your customer. Then you waited for the check in the mail to arrive to get paid.

Construction Contractors Have Two Choices depending on what you are most comfortable with, QuickBooks Desktop Version In The Cloud or Xero Accounting Online.

Xero Accounting Online

QuickBooks Desktop Version Online

Which One Is Better For Your Construction Company?

Outsourced Bookkeeping Services For Contractors At Fast Easy Accounting         Xero Accounting Construction Specialists At Fast Easy Accounting 1-206-361-3950

QuickBooks or Xero Accounting Online for construction depends on how you get paid, the type of work your company does and if you need Job Costing.

QuickBooks Desktop Version Online Works Best If You:

  1. Takes Job Deposits

  2. Have Change Orders

  3. Issues Multiple Invoices

  4. Need Work-In-Progress

  5. Need Job Costing Reports

  6. Need Payment Applications

  7. Need Periodic Invoices For Bank draws

  8. Need Complex Construction Accounting Reports

At The Price Point Intuit Offers All Versions Of QuickBooks including QuickBooks Pro, QuickBooks For Contractors and QuickBooks For Contractors Enterprise no other construction accounting software comes close too offering the robust Job Costing Reports, Work-In-Progress Reports And Tracking (WIP) and hundreds of other combined reports and features medium and large contractors need in order to operate and grow their construction company.

We Are Raving Fans Of Intuit the makers of QuickBooks and have used QuickBooks since the first version was released in 1992. In fact in 2005 we moved our entire client base including our own accounting firm's QuickBooks files to an Intuit Approved commercial hosting environment so we could offer our clients all of the benefits of the full desktop version of QuickBooks accessible online 24/7 and it has been a huge success!

Xero Accounting Online Works Best If You:

  1. Need To Get Paid Faster And Easier

  2. Have Simple Jobs You Invoice Individually

  3. Need To Invoice Customers At The Jobsite

  4. Need Key Performance Indicator Financial Reports

  5. Want Professional Construction Accounting At Lower Costs

Xero Accounting Online saves us time in data entry which means we can offer Xero Accounting Online outsourced contractors bookkeeping services at a substantial savings over QuickBooks outsourced contractors bookkeeping services and provide more in-depth financial reporting with some of the reports being updated within seconds of when the transactions are received.

Option #1 - Smartphone With Xero Accounting Online

Ride The Internet And Invoice With Your SmartPhone Using Xero Accounting Online

Three Things Contractors Need Cash, Cash And More Cash When you or your employee finishes a job you need to get paid and I mean the sooner the better! Use a smartphone, electronic tablet or web enabled device, create the invoice and email it! Xero Accounting Online will have updated your Sales Report, Profit & Loss Report, Balance Sheet Report and a lot more reports before you finished reading this sentence.

The Key To Making Xero Accounting Online Work is having it properly setup and maintained. It is easy enough that anyone can setup the basic company file just like anyone can get on a backhoe and run it. Especially if you have watched the professionals do it for several years as I have because they make it look so "Easy..." Famous last words....

In A Failed Attempt To "Save Money" I rented a backhoe, once, and ripped several underground utility lines out of the ground and caused a lot of damage in less than thirty minutes. The total cost of the job skyrocketed and let's just say I understand the value of professional services and should have known better...ah the "Halo Effect"...I am so good at construction accounting of course I can operate a backhoe...NOT!

Don't Try To Save Money On Construction Accounting because it is a lot harder than it looks. for more on this click on "Construction Accounting Vs. Regular Accounting" and read an article I wrote about it. A word to the wise could save you a lot more money than I lost trying to operate a backhoe.

If your Xero Accounting Setup Is Not Working the way you want, no worries, we can help. Simply add us to your Xero Accounting Online company file and Contact Sharie 206-361-3950 or sharie@fasteasyaccounting.com.

Do You Own A Small Construction Contracting Company?

Perhaps you own a service and repair firm that specializes in plumbing, electrical, HVAC, or maybe a handyman service or someone who does small construction projects that last from a few hours to a few days and you only need to give your customer or client one invoice?

If this describes you then perhaps Xero Accounting Online is a better fit for you than QuickBooks. We offer both Xero Accounting Online and QuickBooks bookkeeping services for construction contractors and have found the dividing line is how you get paid.

Option #2 - Smartphone With QuickBooks Desktop Version Online

Save Time And Money By Invoicing With Smartphone And Bill.Com Linked To QuickBooks Desktop Version In The Cloud

Three Things Contractors Need Cash, Cash And More Cash When you or your employee finishes a job you need to get paid and I mean the sooner the better! Use a smartphone, electronic tablet or web enabled device, create the invoice and email it! QuickBooks Desktop Version In The Cloud will have updated your Sales Report, Profit & Loss Report, Balance Sheet Report and a lot more reports before you finished reading this sentence.

The Key To Making QuickBooks Desktop Version In The Cloud Work For Construction Contractors is having it properly setup, linked to Bill.Com and maintained. Invest the money and let us do it for you, right, the first time! Don't be fooled into thinking just because it is somewhat easy for small retail companies that it will be easy for you to perform a QuickBooks setup for your construction company. The reason is simple; the difference between a construction accounting and regular accounting is similar to the difference between a shovel and a backhoe.

Regular Accounting Vs. Construction Accounting

Thinking Anyone Can Do A QuickBooks Setup For Construction is like thinking anyone can get on a backhoe and run it. Especially if you have watched the professionals do it for several years as I have because they make it look so "Easy..." Famous last words....

In A Failed Attempt To "Save Money" I rented a backhoe, once, and ripped several underground utility lines out of the ground and caused a lot of damage in less than thirty minutes.
