Time to get your business finances under control. I recommend you do it the easy way: make the computers do most of the work.
I’ve long been a fan of Outright. It asks you to track only the minimum of detail required to do your income taxes. (As a sole proprietor, that’s a Schedule C.) Outright will pull transactions straight from your online banking.
End of year tip: if you can find a way to export your whole year of transaction data from your online banking, Outright will import it. Then next year, it can pull data automatically throughout the year.
Outright can do much more, but it is the basics you need to focus on at first. Get things in order. It makes a huge difference in every facet of your business.
I recently learned about Wave Accounting. It looks good, too, though I haven’t met their people or used their system yet.
