A lot of contractors use QuickBooks for contractors to keep track of the job costing and invoicing their customers and it works well if all you have is a few simple invoices.
The problem is when you get beyond two invoices, add some job deposits and change orders the process gets real tricky because there is no "Magic Button" in QuickBooks for contractors that will generate an invoice that makes sense to your customer.
Our founder Randal DeHart, used QuickBooks for contractors in his construction firms for many years and he understands the frustration of trying to make QuickBooks for contractors do things it is not designed to do.
He developed an Excel program for complex invoices which we use to generate application for payments for our contractor bookkeeping clients. You do not need any excel skills because we do everything for you!
These application for payment invoices show the money trail from beginning to end in a way that everyone can understand and appreciate, which means you get paid faster, with less hassle and your clients will love you for it!
