any advice for expense spreadsheet or app? (Jobber user but needs add on)

We are a two person show (sole proprietorship) business that has been operating just over a year. We happily use Jobber & appreciate much of the functionality but we have a piece missing that I haven't been able to fill.

We need to track our business expenses (to break out GST) and we'll be using a basic chart of accounts to categorize the expenses.

I have googled and looked into Xero, Freshbooks, Quickbooks etc and they all seem to duplicate what we pay for in Jobber already.

Any suggestions would be appreciated times a million!

Note: Creating my own Excel Spreadsheets is beyond my ability.

Excel is easy to use. And I am no computer wiz kid. No kid for that matter.

I know you have looked at Xero and QuickBooks but a lot of users use those for their accounting and expenses. Even though Jobber does handle invoicing, Xero or QB can also handle expenses, tax, payroll and overall reporting on cash flow.

I think we have some discount codes for QuickBooks Online and might have some for Xero soon. That might help get you started so you can try them out and see how they work together.

A good Excel sheet is not a bad idea either, I'm sure someone here would have a good one they might be willing to share.
