See How Much Money You're Making... So You Know Where Your Business Stands.
Ever thought you had plenty of money in your account... and then a payment came out that you'd forgotten about? You're not alone. It can be very easy to lose track of payments, expenses & cashflow. The good news is QuickBooks EasyStart can help.
- Track cheques that haven't yet cleared
- See what's due on your credit card
- Stay ahead of expenses, so you'll always know if you're making a profit
And EasyStart updates your records automatically as you work. So you can make better, more confident spending decisions based on accurate pictures of where you stand financially.
Includes 6 critical reports you just can't be without...
Are you truly profitable? You won't know just by looking at your online banking statement or scrolling through an Excel spreadsheet. Reports like the following can really help you make sense of exactly how your business is doing--so you know if you're profitable enough yet to buy that new laptop (y'know, the one with the really cool touch-screen).
- Unpaid Invoices
- Expenses by Supplier
- Balance Sheet
- Profit & Loss
- Sales by Customer (to show you who your best customers are)
- Sales by Item (to highlight your best-selling items)
Plus 14 more great reports! All in QuickBooks EasyStart.

Because You Shouldn't Have to Be Traded on the TSE to Look Like a Pro.
Why settle for business forms, receipts or cheques that don't reflect just how valuable your business is? Easy customization tools in QuickBooks EasyStart help you present a more professional image. Add your logo to receipts & estimates. Adjust colouring & fonts (to match your branding) in sales forms, proposals or other business forms. And download 100s of other customizable business forms for free.
The impact? You look as professional as you really are. Without wasting time on customizing again and again (like you would in Word or Excel).
Just use sales tax codes on your invoices and other transactions then use the File Sales Tax feature at the end of your sales tax period. QuickBooks creates the cheque (or invoice in the case of a refund) for you. View larger.
We Can't Make Taxes, HST or GST Go Away. But We Can Make Them a Little Less Taxing.
Did you know that every expense you enter into QuickBooks automatically maps to its corresponding tax line on your return? That means you barely have to lift a finger when tax time rolls around. Just create a simple "Tax Agency Report" in EasyStart, and see what numbers go where. Done!
Oh, and let's not forget about GST remittances. Your GST is due 2 weeks after a quarter finishes, which doesn't leave you a lot of time. Thankfully, you can quickly complete your sales tax return in EasyStart... and then eFile it! No stamps. No risk of post office delays. And no late penalties (as long as you eFile on time, of course). ...Can Excel, Word or Simply Accounting help you eFile? Nope.
