QuickBooks Self-Employed is a special version of QuickBooks built especially for freelancers, independent contractors, and service-based entrepreneurs. We make it easy to manage your finances and taxes!

This product is new-ish and a bit different. There are a few things that you can't do with it, such as:

  • Import data directly from other QuickBooks products
  • Export data to other QuickBooks products
  • Sign in with an existing QuickBooks company ID

But there are a lot of things you can do! Here are some tips on how to choose the best QuickBooks version for you:

Why you should use QuickBooks Self-Employed

  • You're a sole proprietor (self-employed) and have no employees.
  • QuickBooks Self-Employed makes it really, really easy to mark your daily transactions as personal spending or business deductions. (This will make filing your Schedule C a breeze!)
  • You can also easily print out your Schedule C and take it to your accountant.
  • We’ll calculate your estimated quarterly taxes for you and help get them paid.
  • You can create simple invoices quickly.
  • We connect to TurboTax to make year-end filing fast and easy.

Why you should use QuickBooks

  • You're a business owner (C-corp, S-corp, partnership, or multiperson LLC), not a sole proprietor.
  • You have one or more employees.
  • You need to create estimates.
  • You need to track inventory.
  • You need bill pay.
  • You need to integrate with other applications like Square or Vend.
  • You send more than 10 or so invoices a month.
