Disappointed to Say the Least 2/5
I started my own business after a less than amicable divorce and was looking forward to using the quik books app for my bookkeeping needs. Since I was just starting out, I couldn’t afford the luxury of a private bookkeeper and I had only heard positive things about quik books. However, when I went to connect my bank to track revenue and expenses, my request was DENIED because of my credit score! I was dum founded. What the heck does my credit score have to do with tracking my revenue and expenses!!! I felt as though I was being judged and discriminated against!! I wonder how many other people have felt this way. I am not proud of my credit score and I am not going to justify it, but my goodness, it’s just an App on a phone, not a $300.000 home! !!! Needless to say, I won’t be using this app now or in the future. I will also tell the people I know not to, also!
Great app!!! 5/5
By JamMan 30
The Quickbooks app has saved me time and kept me on track with my expenses.
I thought this would link up to my account and not be a new account and that was the beginning. Now I’m trying to get in the app to cancel it and it takes for ever to load. Before I can read what I need to do it crashes. Thought this would be a good feature with the miles but more of a headache.
Needs some improvement 3/5
I do like the self employed version of quick books, but it does need some improvements. May I suggest for invoices that there be a field to add tax to certain items and further more with the invoicing we have multiple customers that do not send bills via email. I am unable to make the invoice and mark it as paid. There needs to be some work done for the invoicing part. I have to use another software to invoice certain customers, it is quiet annoying.
Won't transfer Receipt Copies 1/5
If you use Self-Employed and want to change to any of the other "Small Business" accounts, you're screwed because nothing will sync and you will have to transfer everything manually. HUGE con.
Terrible customer service 1/5
I would give this a zero if I could!
I am self employed and signed up for this app in December to replace mileiq. The desktop version works, but the mobile app does not. For OVER two months I have tried to contact quickbooks support to no avail. They tell me I can Not call them I have to email them. They keep giving me the same stupid answers, like a robot... check my internet connection, that’s a joke I have tried to open this app in every different location and still will not open, then if I am able to open it, it tells me to change my password, which I hav now done over 10times. Still the mobile and desktop will not sync my accounts. Tracking my mileage is critical not only can you not get into the app, NOONE AT QUICKBOOKS WILL ASSIST YOU!!
Love love love 5/5
By Moonlia the 3rd
Love this app, helps me so much. I was doing everything manually! I tried the free trial and was instantly hooked.
Perfect for Small Business Owners 5/5
Quick Books Self-Employed app is so convenient and user-friendly. I love that I can track expenses and trips/ mileage right from my phone or iPad.
Just updated as we speak for Big fixes. I go to track mileage and it kicks me out of that!
"Quick Books", individually tailored 5/5
Adds efficiency to everyday business tracking tasks. Super idea!
Impossible to cancel account 1/5
I am totally mad that you cannot cancel the service. The app gives you instructions but where it tells you to go to doesn’t exist. Bait and switch!!!
Partial payment option 2/5
I was very happy with my product until I had a client trying to make a partial payment for a large invoice. I don't understand why this is not a feature for all the products that accept payments. Please add a partial payment option for QuickBooks self employed. Even adding an upgrade to add partial payments would be an improvement...
Great product for your business
Great in some ways but not all 3/5
By Iz b lilc
This app is a great benefit for “on-the-go” access. It lacks in some big places though. Having to have “always allow ” access on to track mileage is a HUGE disappointment. It’s a battery hog. We stopped using it for a while, and that threw off mileage for the year. Also, it would be great to have an option to just add miles, and not input addresses. Other logs maintain addresses, this shouldn’t be necessary.
Bank account constantly has to be “hidden” and then unhidden to update transactions. Dragging down does nothing.
Upgrade to TurboTax not recognized/ no integration 2/5
By The Ruffled Dove
I paid for the upgrade but appears I can’t use it.
The app does not recognize my upgrade even though I signed into intuit, updated billing and subscriptions, signed in, signed out, refresh. Nada. Thanks Quickbooks. 😑 Great idea, too bad it doesn’t work.
NEED OPTION TO DOWNLOAD RECIEPTS 1/5
I have uploaded several receipts and now that tax season is here i need to make sure my receipts are backed up on my computer. Quickbooks has no option to download all the receipts ive uploaded !!! Unless i go to each individual receipt and screen shot it which would be a huge inconvenience and would be prone to errors. Another frustrating thing is that here is no support !! 4-5 month back when i started intuit told me since this is a new app they are working on getting support team and it would be up soon. Still nothing !! They only have a automated chat system or a list of stupid question they can help you with. NEED SUPPORT HUMANS !!! NEED ABILITY TO BACK UP RECEIPTS ON CAMERA ROLL OR COMPUTER!! Get on it Intuit !!
Miles tracking errors 1/5
Won't record all miles. There will be missing trips. Incredibly frustrating!!!
SE Quickbookd 5/5
By Lynn Forte
I love how smoothly this works with my Etsy Store.
QB and TurboTax Self Employed integration does not work 1/5
Do not buy the software to record your business expenses and expect it to integrate with Turbo Tax self employed. It simply does not work.
I’m not new to computer systems and tax software, after hours of poor-quality tech support (writing emails beside there is no call in number), I can only conclude this software is not ready, not functional. I will need to manually enter QB transaction’s summary into Turbo Tax, wasting my time and degrading to core capably and value proposition of this software package.
Do not waste your money and you valuable time as I have.
Doesnt automatically tally sales tax :( 4/5
Its the one feature i wish this app had
The ability to automatically tally sales tax based an the amount deposited would be extremely helpful. They could make it so you could change your individual tax rate in settings for the different tax rates around the country
For instance if i deposit a check for $108.75. It would be extremely helpful if the app calculated that $8.75 of that check is sales tax and placed that as a line item on my quarterly returns
Extremely Easy To Use 5/5
This app makes it incredibly easy to stay on top of business income and expenses. It’s very user-friendly, and logging transactions and business miles takes literally seconds. I highly recommend it.
Awesome... fantastic 5/5
By NO DAZE OFF
This app has saved me thousands.. I would be lost without it... mileage.. tracking spend.. financial reports ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️... no complaints.. invoice clients to pay by credit card 👍👍👍👍
QuickBooks Self Employed 5/5
I love this app! I wish there was an updated iPad version
Good, but.. 4/5
It really needs to have functionality to classify personal drives. I come from using MileIQ, where not only it’s an option, but I can create my own subcategories. Ok, I understand the purpose of the QBSE, but giving me a half-baked version of something I can find better for free (if you don’t drive daily) is just cheap.
What happened? 5/5
I tried the app, liked the app, but the 50% discount that was advertised was nowhere to be found. False advertising? Does not bode well...
Update: I was contacted by Quickbooks and given the discount. They were very apologetic and helped throughout the whole process. Changed to 5 stars!
Great and easy to use 5/5
By Fabi 75
Love it I can managed my business transactions.
Can’t label trips for work 2/5
I’m using the most updated version of the app on iPhone 6. The past couple days it will let me label trips as “personal”, but whenever I try to label them for “business” & then select or type in the reason the app crashes. Every time. Please fix this!
I love it 5/5
Takes fear out of Rideshare. Does a lot of the work for you!
By Am correct
Its a waist of time
Can’t include sales tax on invoices 2/5
As a freelancer, this is the app I really need (as opposed to QuickBooks Online). I primarily need it for invoicing and tax preparation. But I am required to charge sales tax and there is no option to add it here.
Great App 5/5
Bank sync rarely works 2/5
By Jammin jojo
Please improve. Continually I get message “connectivity issue: please try again in a few hours.” In a few hours- same issue. Makes tracking expenses kind of a moot point.
Love it 5/5
By Big hairy al
As a self employed contractor this app is by far the best I’ve seen its easy to use especially when u can track ur miles it tells u exactly where ur at with he tax man!!!
Works great in January 2018 5/5
I was really uncomfortable with the thought of managing taxes for my own personal proprietorship. This app is making my life so much easier. I am driving for Uber and Lyft on the side and this works perfect for me to keep track of everything.
The only downside is when I bundled QuickBooks self-employed with TurboTax, I expected I would be able to use TurboTax without paying even more on top of the bundle price. However that is not the fact. TurboTax try to nickel and dime you unfortunately.
Zero stars 1/5
Very convenient 5/5
Having this app makes it so much easier to track income and expenses on the go.
Not too impressed 3/5
Not too impressed. It doesn't consistently track my miles which could be in part because I can't get my phone settings set as they suggest.
Also you can only do one business per subscription and it's not cheap.
I've started using Everlance and so far it tracks mileage well and I can record all of my expenses on it and divide them into their proper categories. It also allows you to snap a photo of receipts as you are recording them just like quick books does.
Less than zero 1/5
No way to contact.
404 missing customer service 1/5
When signing up for the software I made a small error in the email address. I called several times to fix the situation, and was given the runaround by four different representatives who all said it was an easy fix. It still didn’t get fixed, so I no longer have any interest in using the software.
Incorrect Mileage 1/5
I’ve had this app for two years and the mileage has always been pretty accurate. Recently though it has been substantially off and when I manually correct the destination the taxable mileage amount doesn’t change with it. This is a huge problem especially with it being tax season. If I can’t manually adjust it and if the app won’t adjust it- what else is there to do? It ends up logging my mileage as $0.00 tax deductible. I can’t have this for my small business. Unfortunately by the time I hear back from anyone on this app it’ll be too late. If it doesn’t have a quick resolve I suggest finding another app for you small business!
I got a free year of this app for free from TurboTax, so decided to try it out. Advertised as available on iPad, but it is an iPhone optimized app that is impossible to use on an iPad. Definitely not going to use it, I will stick to manually tracking info in Excel.
Edit for developer response: although I appreciate you getting back to me, doing it on my computer in a web browser no longer makes it convenient.
Needs Pictures for Invoice 4/5
This app has been incredibly helpful for me working as a freelance cinematographer.
The one thing this desperately needs to add is being able to add photos to invoices.
I need to add receipts and parking stubs all the time and I have to send a separate email for those every time and its kind of a pain. Can you folks add that??
Love this app 5/5
Keeps me organized!
By La Harmony
A very organized app for a business person

Easy and Friendly 5/5
It is very easy to work and help you to get your P&L
Uses for myself 5/5
It keeps track of all my travel and transactions daily to where I don’t have to worry when and where did this happen.
Saves so much time...invaluable.
Features don’t work 1/5
Auto mileage tracker does not track, support tab does not work, is not syncing with the web application. Cannot add multiple vehicles or multiple businesses. Overall not very useful or functional.
