This is a really great app except it freezes on IPhone 8 when you click mileage tab. Restarting the fixes the issue if do not click mileage tab again.

Invoice dashboard

The Invoices on the dashboard won’t load. I’ve tried logging out and in, still never loads. Everything else loads?!?! The most IMPORTANT tab on the dashboard, and it doesn’t work?!?!?! Very frustrating!!!!
Great app for bookkeeping
by likilikikk on 2020/09/09 20:32
I love the app, helps me to visualize easily my income and expenses, track mileage and pay my quarterly taxes. But I wanna suggest a few upgrades after been using it now for 8 months, I would love to be able to see my metrics based on the job, so I currently have 3 business, but I have to see it as a total, I can’t see how much money or expenses I have per business. I also would like to have the option to enter just total mileage, even when you can track your trips or uploading every trip I has done. Just entering total miles to keep track of my mileage would be helpful for me. Thanks anyway it’s super good this app to keep track of my financial goals monthly accesible from my phone at anytime!
Love it!

My accountant was ready to fire me because My paperwork was so unorganized! Quicken Self-employment is easy to use and keeps everything organized. Tax time comes and I just send her the link with permission to access my files. She no longer threatens to fire me. Lol!
iPhone mileage tracking
by CALLE3a on 2020/09/05 05:09
Since the last update I have notice that my mileage is not being recorded. I’ve notice that there is a fix for Android but not the iPhone. This app is awesome but the mileage is hurting me.
Such a relief
by Retrnngson on 2020/09/04 18:31
It use to be so hard for me to keep up with miles, every receipt, and invoice. Not any more. thanks to QUICK BOOKS

I never paid Taxes since 2016 that’s 4 years in a row. And best part is I got Tax return every year because of QB Self-Employed, Amazing‼️Gosh I love this app ❣️👍👏😊
Horrible customer service
by reakestate on 2020/09/04 12:49
Updated 9/4/20 I tried to give them a chance but here we go another deposit 9/1/20 and it still is in pending status 9/4/20. This is ridiculous I’ll just use zelle or bill pay or from now on. I will not be renewing this next month Everything is automated which is fine if there’s no issues. Good luck trying to reach a human to actually talk to. Phone system doesn’t recognize my correct phone number and directs you to the bot on the website. Ask for a human get directed to a human who will not call you no matter what! Ask for a supervisor and get ignored! Where is my $5000 payment deposited 8.8.20? Reporting to BBB AND DEPT OF BANKING AND FINANCE

Great for small businesses
by Cory Dallas on 2020/09/02 17:11
I love this app for my small business. It’s very easy to use and I can send invoices to my customers in seconds. I like that you can track what invoices have been baud and which are still due. This is a must have app for someone that needs to send invoices out in the field.
Great for Delivery Drivers
by tmarti87111 on 2020/09/02 16:04
QB helps me track commutes both ways; whereas, most gig apps will only track one way. Linking your bank allows you to track your income and expenses precisely. During COVID, I’m supplementing my income more with contractor type work since my traditional source of income was from an impacted industry. You can qualify for financial assistance based on your taxable income that QB reports generate for you. I love this app!
by Pinktreehands on 2020/09/02 14:46
This app is an absolute necessity for independent contractors. Quickbooks self employed worth it’s weight in gold

Sync QuickBooks desktop pro.
by mr. does not understand on 2020/08/27 18:29
QuickBooks desktop and QuickBooks self-employed can’t be synced together. They are using different platforms and work independently making this app worthless. It does not make sense to have the same company make a desktop app and a Phone app that cannot communicate.
by Arops123 on 2020/08/27 12:33
I love it. I’ve just started my own business and I wouldn’t know where I would be without the help and organization of Quickbooks!

I’ve been using QuickBooks self-employed for one year I am very happy with the program I like the way it keeps track of all my expenses and income driven miles and invoices.
by JJD19 on 2020/08/26 21:00
It worked great for the first year plus, now it’s frustrating just to download receipts, get the recurring message to ‘try again later’, but this should be a time saving, efficient app, but pencil and paper may be faster. Yes, I’ve complained, then it downloads receipts for a bit, and goes right back to ‘not’! Today, i can not even sign in.. Issue after issue, seems from the latest posts, many are having issues with an app that prior to march of this year worked great Searching for new.....
Compelled to warn
by Jaymo Stringbean on 2020/08/26 16:56
Do not use the invoicing option. They hold the money for a week and when you call/chat you are put into automated hell. This is quite possibly the worst customer service experience I’ve ever had. Took me a full day, several chats, and several different phone numbers to just return their call. What was the call in reference to? They were holding my payment until I answered questions about my business. The very same business who paid them for their service! They accepted my money to them without issue. But when my customer paid by credit card, they held my money until I screamed and spent a day not working trying to get my money!

Worst app I have ever used
by advocateforintegrity on 2020/08/20 17:47
Trying to log in online requires 2 step verification. I no longer have access to the phone number my account is registered under. There is no easy solution to simply change your phone number. There is no phone support and you have to be logged in to get chat support. So what do you do if you cannot log in? I am stuck with no solutions. I cannot access my financial reports or accounts. This is hands down the worst app experience I have ever had. Intuit has the worst excuse for customer support of any company I have ever dealt with.

Mileage rules don’t work
by TheSavannahSteve on 2020/08/20 12:23
If the mileage rules worked I would have given this a five. I spend more than four times the amount of time on this app than I need to because the mileage rules aren’t automatically applied.

I like this version because I don’t need all the extensive information that comes with the online version. That is for my CPA to do, not me. I love how fast and easy it is to use, clock mileage, send invoices and receipts and log all my transactions to speed up the accuracy of business finances. Quick at a glance numbers on how my business is doing. Great program. K

I sell on amazon handmade and quickbooks makes it so easy to manage my income business expenses. I have it linked to my bank account so it’s as easy as shipping the transaction and labeling “supply/materials”, “memberships fees” etc. It can also track your Milage and trips so you can keep track of any milage used for business purposes. It’s truly as easy as it gets!!!

I love the app with the update, doesn't glitch as it did on iOS. But the bookkeeping and mileage tracker are awesome for those of us on the go, and sorting receipts while waiting for breakfast and coffee is awesome. And the app keeps me on task for up to date profit and expenses while on the go.
Short Term Rental Owner
by Gogirl2016 on 2020/08/16 12:56
No way to enter receipts that are older than when you downloaded your account info., you can load business receipts but no choice of personal if it is able to be written off, you cannot put it into the program anywhere but in business, so it isn’t claiming all of the needed information. There is no place for reimbursements if funds, like refund on materials from stores, Income from inheritance, gifts etc., personal. It needs to chime with personal so it will be able to keep up with real time.

by Ipodtouch4g64gb on 2020/04/07 03:38
This is a terrific app. It’s tremendous, it’s really great. It’s almost as great as my wall. When I told my staff to create an app, I told them “I want it to be the best app we have ever seen in the history of mankind, it needs to be a great app, I want a perfect app.” And I told them if they didn’t create a perfect app I would say “YOU’RE FIRED” and so they did what I said, it’s that simple. All the other apps are terrible but not this app. This app was made in America by hard working American people. The people that made this app are wonderful men and women. (Applause) thank you, thank you! And I love the women!, they’re really great people, great workers, and the women are doing so much better now with their salaries than before I became president, and they love me, the women do, because I helped them raise their wages. We have so many single women voting for trump now, and the democrats keep lying about it. I looked at the numbers, just look at the numbers coming out lately and see that they’re lying about me. They lie about me every day, Fake. News.(applause)Thank you. God bless America. (Applause)
Disappointed, lacking key features
by BadBrain13 on 2019/09/06 00:36
Quick Books self employed looks promising but is lacking critical features such as the ability to set recurring transactions, duplicate transactions, time tracking, and most importantly the ability to change an invoice’s status without having to email to a client through the QuickBooks system. I’ve been using FreshBooks which has all of these features (and a cleaner, prettier UI), but wanted to give QuickBooks Self Employed a try since it has the added functionality to estimate quarterly taxes and the ability to export tax info over to TurboTax. I could make everything else work, but forcing users to email an invoice using their interface is very limiting since I need to use PDFs for a specific clients. Not having this basic feature is probably a deal breaker for me - Especially since support’s response is that they don’t currently have plans to implement this feature and there are older support threads with multiple requests to add such a basic feature: to be able to change invoice status when using PDFs. As is, If you do not want to email an invoice through Quickbooks Self Employed, you will not be able to get the invoice out of draft mode and, more importantly, you’ll be unable to mark it as paid and have the payment reflected within the system. Such a shame since I really do like the quarterly tax estimates, integrated tax payments/tracking, and the ability to export everything to TurboTax at years end.
by Small Construction LLC Dude on 2019/11/30 22:21
It would be so nice if there was a smooth transition or an option to add payroll on this app. I don’t need an enterprise accounting solution and don’t feel like I have the ability to transition to chart of accounts accounting because my business is so small, 2 employees other than myself. I think for businesses that are in transition into becoming larger and beginning to hire employees, seasonally or temporarily, it makes sense that I could use a simple program like self employees but also be able to keep track of my payroll within this app or at least be able to classify it as something other than others business expenses’. I may not always have employees and the need for a cumbersome enterprise accounting solution- so something in between this and enterprise would be nice. Something that incorporated payroll accounting and self employed features and simplicity. It’s a great app and great software at a reasonable price but even if it didn’t do payroll per say but could help keep track and account for those amounts sent out between paychecks and withholding it would make tax time easier and give me a better sense of revenues, expenses and better reporting and insight on how to charge the correct price based upon new overhead with employees and without employees. There should be an in between program that doesn’t force you to go to chart of accounts- because that is more accounting than a little business needs or an in between business needs.
Mileage Tracker Flaky UPDATED
by Lazzydog on 2020/01/08 13:11
UPDATE: After another support ticket getting no response BUT them responding to my review I tried the proposed solution to band aid my missing trips. No luck. Still have the program and it is STILL not logging mileage. Now it’s completely failing all trips. I’m not incompetent when it comes to these things. I’ve built multiple CPU’s; have my home setup for multitudes of automation tasks using IFTTT protocols, etc. I have checked and checked again my setting which are correct. I’ve used the online support and followed the guides given in the reply to my review. Check other reviews. I’m not the only one. If your looking for solid mileage tracking look elsewhere. Flaky at best with absolutely dismal customer service. ORIGINAL REVIEW: One of the big reasons I got this was for its inclusion of automatic mileage tracking. Well even after reading bad reviews of people saying it didn’t work right I tried it with the 30 day trial. Worked great until a week ago (I’ve since purchased the software). Frustrated I sent an email via the embedded support tab/button. No response in two days and mileage tracking is still only picking up 1 of 3 trips or so. Can’t recommend a product that is that inconsistent and has no customer service to back it up when there’s problems. It appears my support email is either ignored or is backlogged by over 2 days which would suggest many others are having problems as well. BUYER BEWARE
Great until software update
by unhappy qb se user on 2017/10/11 17:42
This software is useless without the capacity to upload tracked expenses/receipts to an invoice. Who out here doesn't have billable expenses with receipts? None! We all need to track and show our costs to our customers. This, in a previous software revision was available, but was removed recently and seriously hinders my ability to bill my customers effectively and with complete transparency. To have to jimmy rig my invoices to show my costs incurred is not only ineffective but unprofessional! Also, now it appears to incorrectly address the uploaded receipts on date, name of company, and amount. And it does it randomly. This now is taking up all my time, rather than making more efficient use of my time. I have contacted support multiple times and they have said they are working to improve this function but have no timeline to fix this. They offered me one months credit but never applied the credit. Can’t call someone because they don’t give a number and I have asked for a call and they said they can’t call me. I have called other numbers not related to self employed and they directed me to the email process. I have submitted comments to the software engineers and have not received a productive answer other than we are working on it.... if you had it working in the past, how hard is it to fix it and put it back in if it was never a problem?!? No one has ever explained what was the issue.

I’m just trying out QuickBooks. The interface is very nice. Intuitive one might say. When reviewing transactions I see a nice button that says “Create rule” so I hit it. In a very helpful way it asks, would you like to automatically categorize all transactions from vendor A as category Z. I hit confirm, then save my transaction. I then see a little notification that says X number of transactions were automatically categorized, which I’m very excited about because it seems to be making my life easier, yay! Then, to my horror, I see that all the X number of transactions are reviewed as “uncategorized” and even the first item I reviewed and based the rule on has a completely different category than the one I selected and saved. And this wasn’t just a fluke, I had been going along like this for several transactions, vendors and categories until I noticed they were all screwed up. The very basic function of this software, the flagship software of the industry, the function of sorting your transactions for tax purposes, is completely broken. So I look for a help option in the app to report the problem, don’t see one, only an option to leave a review. And here I am, warning the next fool to stay away from this very nice looking but completely broken app. P.S. I found the help, it’s an AI chatbot. It had to forward my problem to its humans, they’ll get back to me.
Mileage Tracking is Unreliable Lately
by VanBourne on 2019/01/22 01:40
Update: Mileage Tracking still HIGHLY unreliable !! No fixes. No communication from the developer. It takes more work to double check everything. Ugh. And I’m paying for this? In the past few months I’ve noticed that entire trips aren’t tracking. There is a manual tracking option, but I’m paying money to have it automatically track. I’m a roofing contractor and drive A LOT. Every time this happens I have to pour over my calendar and consider every customer, every supply run, every inspection, etc that I have. Then I have to map each of those drives myself to determine the miles. Only then to enter it manually. At this point it is costing me actually money AND costing me valuable time. I’ve already selected the mileage tracking troubleshooter in the app and confirmed all my settings are correct. It has all the checkboxes checked off. I’ve confirmed that the app is open and running in the background each morning. I’ve emailed customer service with a couple examples. And reading some other complaints here, it seems I’ll have to do more of the developers job by not only tracking down each trip, but now I’ll have to catalog them all and send in to a different customer service person. Why am I doing the developers job checking for bugs on an app that I’m paying for?
More Than One Business
by CAchord14 on 2020/05/12 13:47
This App is one of the easiest to use and for the most part meets my needs; however, I’m one of those business owners that actually has 2 different small businesses. This app currently doesn’t allow for me to identify expenses and/or income for each company individually and appropriately throughout the year. This leaves me having to spend hours dividing everything out at the end of the year prior to filing my taxes. If there was an option to allow business owners to enter more than one company, that would be huge! Also, I currently operate both businesses out of a home office. This is mostly because I’m not large enough to need other accommodations at this time, but now with the COVID Pandemic, I personally think our society will be changed forever. With that being said, I feel we could use some additional (more descriptive) categories under “Business” such as those in the “Personal”. For example, I provide equine therapy services, so I’d love to see (all) the categories under “Personal” made available for selection under “Business.” Thank you, Small Louisiana Business Owner

App doesn’t work
by Bb3575 on 2020/03/23 01:43
I subscribed to the service the day I downloaded the app. I’ve been tracking all my miles, expenses, income, etc ever since. I tried logging in today and got “your free trial is over please subscribe” so I click to subscribe, cause maybe there’s an issue with my subscription? I click on subscribe and it tells me I’m already subscribed. Yet I can’t get into my account because it keeps telling me to subscribe!!!! Canceling this and getting my $ back. I’ve got well over a month of mileage, expenses and income now to recreate. Update: after being told they would help me get back into my account, and after days of back and forth emails, I was told by their tech support that I have an expired free trial. I responded with all the info (via screenshots) showing I paid for the app for the past 2 months, and since I had to now go without using the features and have to manually record all of my mileage, expenses and income, and can’t get to ANY of the data I input for the 2 months I WAS able to login, I requested and received a refund from Apple, I never heard a peep from this company again. ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE customer service and tech support!!!! I lost every bit of data I put into this app, and they could care less. Do yourself a favor and just say no.
Fraudulent-false advertising
by Aweston21 on 2020/02/07 15:15
I have been using this app for transactions for two years. Recently I started to track my mileage. According to their advertising this app allows you to create rules for frequent drives. THIS FUNCTION DOES NOT WORK!! Buyer beware!!! I just got done with a chat conversation to solve this and the tech support said, and I quote, “As of the moment, Mileage rules are not applicable to past drive mileage.” When I expressed my confusion because this feature is clearly present on the app they said, and again direct quote, “I checked with the team and Rules are no longer applicable to Mileage Trips.” They literally display features on their application that are absolutely fake. They are knowingly providing a feature on their app that is non-functional. I have spent hours and hours trying to make this feature work, setting up rules, deleting rules and re-setting them up. They even have forums with directions as to how to create mileage rules...ALL LIES! Now I have to manually go through thousands of drives hundreds of which that I thought were being automatically categorized. This is unacceptable and I will be reporting this company to the BBB and any other authorities I can think of. Shame on this developer for doing this to its customers.
So glitchy, not worth the $$$
by emi2994 on 2019/11/08 15:50
I wish someone had told me to use some other app to track my freelance expenses when I was first starting out. At this point it would be a huge undertaking to change to another system, but QBSE is SO GLITCHY. Not worth what you pay for it AT ALL, and when I’ve raised issues with the support team, they’ve literally never been able to offer a solution. Auto-categorization “rules” I’ve created never work, and when I try to re-categorize something it missed, it says I already have a rule to that effect (I KNOW—then how come you didn’t categorize it?!). Different accounts will just stop syncing even though the system says they’re synced. For an independent contractor, missing a month or so of work expenses can make a big impact on my taxes due, so this is really a problem. Nobody at QB wants to solve these issues, or even offer a refund of a month’s subscription, they’re just happy to take your money and never speak with you. And for the invoicing feature, even when a customer pays by ACH/direct deposit, it takes a week for the funds to reach you. Embarrassingly bad app, I’d caution freelancers and independent contractors to stay away and find a different system.
No support
by tonynpr on 2018/09/13 03:41
Absolute garbage no support unless its a chat bot . Bank transaction duplicated never repaired work around delete them one at a time your self loss of classification reclassify them yourself. One by one . Milage lost oh well. No fix its just gone promise to call to straighten this out oh I SEE you did not get called please keep your phone open for a call this week. All these. Things I pay for the app to do. It does not work it fails then last straw connecting to bank multiple times causes a security lock down on bank account forcing 8 time password change in 3 days. Bank has to completely reset the link to change the password for the bank intermittently vanished . It’s not a good app in fact it is worthless. One thing they do well though. They take their money out religiously even when your having issues. Best support is on FACEBOOK writing this got a response. I was a long time quicken turbo tax user from the beginning. Seeing an app from. Quicken I figured the best . I was wrong they triple billed when i dropped the turbo tax feature they billed for with turbo tax and without on same bill causing over drafts. Not surprised by this. Companies lately have the uber model for customer service as in none.
Im not sure what happened
by Numnutz2005 on 2019/09/06 11:14
Its been months and i have sent multiple emails to their support team and havent heard a single thing back (keep in mind this is a PAID service and im receiving 0 replies to anything i send them for help). The app wont update on its own. I have to manually uninstall the app and reinstall it in order to update it which means i have to reconfigure it everytime which is sort of often since they keep pushing out updates every few days. Im not sure why this started happening but when i click update the icon goes grey and it sits for days and days doing nothing. No part of the icon loghts up like all of my other apps do when its partially updated or running through the update process. It literally sits greyed out the entire time. Im on an iphone xs and this happened with every one of the ios updates so i dont think os version matters anymore. I cant be the only one having this problem can i?? How does every other app i have install and update perfectly fine but this one refuses to update?? I restored my phone back to factory stock as well and that didnt resolve a single thing. Wth am i paying for at this point??
Good app, missing some details.
by SSGTRocky on 2018/11/17 04:58
Overall this is a great app for me and my business needs especially since I'm traveling to customer locations. I have the ability to bill them, collect payment from them, manage income and expenses all from this app. A major plus is my ability to scan my receipts or email them in and have QuickBooks input them to my expenses so I can just approve them saving me time and money, great job on this feature! BUT I have noticed that the mileage tracker is not great, sometimes it pickups my drive sometimes it doesn't. I've been forced to use MileIQ for my mileage tracker which is annoying to say the least paying two separate companies when QuickBooks advertised the Mileage Tracker. Another downside is that this app is only available on the phone, not the iPad. I know I can run iPhone apps on the iPad, but it don't look as professional and clean especially when presenting estimates to customers. With times evolving and more business using tablets I would say it's about time that QuickBooks looked into getting their app updated for Tablets.
There is no support for Quick Books Self Employed
by Sunny.dee627 on 2019/08/30 20:38
I am incredibly frustrated! I downloaded the app yesterday and added my account information for it to track. Cool. Today I signed on and it asked me to enter my name and occupation. The problem is the occupation. I’m a Real estate investor but it would not acknowledge any occupation outside of mining, ranching, farming, or animal breeding. It would not let me continue until I picked one of those occupations. I went ahead and picked mining just so I can move on and thought I would go back and edit the occupation. I can’t find anywhere on the app to make that edit, nor can I find any help support on the app. I logged online and was still unable to find my occupation to add it in Settings. I’ve called, I’ve emailed, I’ve tried reading through the questions answered by the community to no avail concerning my questions and I have not been able to get any support. I’ve spoken to two different Support operators but neither of them could help me with self-employed question. They just re-directed me back to the webpage. And here I am now frustrated and no where to ask for help. There’s no way I want to subscribe and pay for an app with no tech support.
Doesn't live up to what was said about it
by Me1678 on 2017/09/17 11:57
The app has potential but really lacks much. It constantly kicks out my banking information so several times a week I have to re-verify my account as quickbooks tells me that my information is incorrect when it's actually correct. It is incredibly annoying. As far as the tracking. It's good at picking up the start of a journey but horrible at detecting the stops. As a delivery person I make several stops and then go to a pickup. This makes all of it one trip. I can only imagine using this for Uber or Lyft as it would make your entire day one trip. This doesn't even give you the option to force stop like you could do with Mile Iq or Hurdlr and those are free apps. I would expect more from a company who wants money from me on a monthly basis. I gave two stars because it has potential because of the ability to set rules for your purchases to make it easier to categorize purchases but at this point I'm not going to continue to use this as a free app and I definitely wouldn't use this as a paid app. If you are someone who drives constantly this isn't the app for you.
Good app but could definitely use different features
by Kidwillz on 2018/12/28 23:43
The app it self is good but not being able to add a PO number to my invoices is a hassle because a lot of big companies require PO’s to send payments to vendors like myself. Also the limitation on the invoice notes for the client makes it difficult to send an invoice with detail about what work was done so the client has a written document of all the work that was accomplished for future reference. Another thing I would really like to see is an option to allow clients to make partial payments because some money is better than no money when a client can’t afford to pay the entire sum of a bill because then I have to create a brand new invoice and adjust the old every time. One last improvement I would really like to see would be the ability to send a quote through QuickBooks that I can turn into a invoice with a contract section and ability to E-sign the contract for the client and contractor. All of those would be great addition that would make my decision on keeping this app a whole lot easier
Has good framework, but missing some crucial features
by Heysndnsnai on 2019/06/28 16:58
QuickBooks self-employed has a great, simple ideology behind it, but I think that QuickBooks is either intentionally throttled some functionality to force users to pay for more premium products, or that they have gone so minimalistic that it has gone too far. The ability for customers to pay partial payments on invoices as one of the most simple, easy things that any business in the service industry has ever thought of. But QuickBooks self-employed does not allow you to do that. It’s ludicrous to think that the majority of customers using QuickBooks self-employed are in the service industry, and for the majority of that industry companies require a 50% down payment. It’s really annoying that QuickBooks doesn’t have this feature, because if I want to get a down payment from somebody, I have to create two separate invoices which looks very unprofessional. Without this feature, I will definitely be switching away from QuickBooks as soon as I can find a better alternative.
Start up company
by hardwoodfloorguy on 2020/07/11 11:08
Started my first company this year ! Did not realize how much paperwork was involved when it comes to dollar’s and cents . This app is a real game charger just put in all your information and it walks you through everything and if you get stuck there bot messaging service is there 24/7 just type in what you want to know and get a Instant reply QuickBooks plus TurboTax package is well worth it makes filing and paying your taxes quarterly very easy . If not sure if this is for you they offer different packages if you want to Star off small . Just remember if you upgrade from QuickBooks to QuickBooks/ TurboTax it takes 45 days to gather and combine all your information. I highly recommend this app for the small business working people that actually do the work makes life a lot easier ! If you don’t like it cancel at any time . You won’t !!
Missing mileage
by tyrelcody on 2019/06/04 17:17
I’m not sure what exactly happened but when I tried to open the app to check my miles for the day, I had to reset my password to login back into the app. When I did login to the app, ALL the miles the app has been tracking are gone, missing, vanished. I would like to know what happened to the miles I have been driving that the app is supposed to track. Also, when my trips are being tracked, there is time missing in between trips, 9 - 10 minutes each and yet I am constantly driving and rarely stop more than two or three minutes at one time. I have checked the settings that the app is always running and I have come to the conclusion that if the app won’t work properly, I will quickly find another app. I have tried emailing support but apparently that doesn’t work through the app, and I’m paying money for this service. If this issue is fixed soon, I’ll upgrade my rating. Update: The app has been tracking the miles I have been driving up until yesterday the 3rd of June. So I’m not going to continue to pay for an app that doesn’t work longer than two weeks from the last issue.
Tracker and Inconsistent
by NalaAPPLE on 2020/06/25 13:51
After three months of troubleshooting with customer service, I was told repeatedly that I was the only one facing the mileage tracking issue and every time they just walked me through the basic restart troubleshooting options. I have been inconsistent receiving service for the mileage tracking but as others have said it is basically useless, frustrating, and I will lose money on time because of this issue. Furthermore, I ask that I receive a discount on my $15 subscription since I wasn’t able to utilize the service I was paying for. The response was no, since I was the only one having the issue it seemed like my phone not the software. After looking at it on my phone after all of this, I now see that mini mini people are havingThe same questions. I actually had to call Apple and they took the time to do some research and found all these other Bible with the same issues, all this after three months of customer service through QuickBooks. At one point they just Google troubleshooting for this issue. Very frustrated
Great all purpose app, but needs fine tuning
by RD Auto Reconditioning on 2018/08/18 05:00
I have been using this app for about 3 months now and it is great for running a small business, hows there are 2 key things that I would love to see changed. First is the mileage tracking, there has to be a way to make it more user friendly, I used mileIQ before this and it was great in the way it would let you name the location you started and stopped at, making it super easy to classify your drives. QB just gives a general address to go off of so then you have to look at the map to remember where the destination was from the drive from last week. Second thing is the invoicing, I used the Wave app before this and the way you could make a list of items to pick from when creating an invoice was great, with QB you can pick from a list of recently used items but it’s not as streamlined as it could be, all in all a good all purpose app because it does do everything including taxes but just like anything all purpose it doesn’t do any one thing great.
Buggy as heck but still worth it unfortunately
by Sharp11Girl on 2018/11/02 06:14
I struggle with this app on a near daily basis. Every now and then it randomly doesn’t pick up one of my trips and I have to manually put in, and then sometimes that trip pops up the next day, and sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes I will mark trips as business and then there will be no deduction in the reviewed trips list, until the next time I login. I get notifications of transactions that I need to review after I review them all the time. Like this is a regular occurrence. Still, it is a quick and easy way of keeping track of my mileage and my expenses so I don’t end up cramming and doing all my accounting in January. It’s just barely worth what it cost to me. They are walking a very thin line here. The second there is a competitor that will track mileage and do accounting, I am ditching this app and I frankly can’t wait. That’s it, I’m done. It hasn’t tracked any of my trips in days. I’m not paying for this. At the end of this year I am getting off Quickbooks and I’m not coming back. Competing apps do everything QB does for free, this app barely works, what the hell am I paying for??
by Benny24ben on 2019/12/08 15:28
I downloaded this app about a year ago so I can track my miles for work. It worked albeit a but clunky on getting the reports but I was able to make do. Fast forward to 11/12 and this app updates and then doesn’t track my miles for several days. In the meantime, I’m working with their tech support to fix this and they said “it must be my phone”. I looked in their community chat rooms and SEVERAL OTHER PEOPLE REPORT SAME PROBLEM, but yeah, this was “only my phone”. I download another mileage app and it works perfectly fine while this doesn’t. So I simply ask to get a refund and cancel my subscription since the app isn’t doing what I paid it to do. They say I have first cancel and then they can initiate a refund. So I do this and then guess what? They deny my refund. SO IF YOU USE THIS FOR THE MILEAGE TRACKER, I would point you to other apps instead of this one because this WILL mess up and QB will just say “not us” and you’re out the money. Terrible, slow service and getting their people to respond was like pulling teeth. I’ll never use again and decided to write this to warn others. BUYER BEWARE!
Death by cloud
by Crab_Tree on 2019/09/25 14:03
I’m glad intuit let me try this piece of junk for free, so I have no qualms about deleating it. Blame the iOS App. Poorly designed, noisy, notification/ad heavy, info light initial screen. Bad at remembering transactions that should be processed automatically. Lots of anoying things that one can normally overlook. But no backups? When deleting what I thought was a redundant account on the App, all my accounts and nine months work were gone, never to be seen again. Now I’m deleting this APP, never to be seen again. No wonder QuickBooks split. Thanks for the reach-out. Now that the cows have left I see no reason in trying to shut the barn door. Restructuring the data does not address the chief flaw in the product. No backups and no “saved state” option. It presents a compelling argument to avoid cloud based systems, especially complex ones. I thought I was deleting a single account, not all of them. Why bother to reconstruct something that a poorly constructed interface update, which occur on a weekly basis these days, can have me accidentlly delete with no hope of an easy recovery. I’ve learned my lesson, I’m moving on.
Do it!
by Robsmusicstudio on 2018/01/04 11:27
You need this app! I am a one-man operation and this app is really amazing. I've set up everything that I need to for my business online and it's like that oven on tv where you "set it and forget it". I teach private music lessons and I don't have time to waste on handwriting everything and remembering who paid and who didn't, what I spent etc. I trust this company, as my dad used intuit software in the early 90's, and neither he nor I have had any issues with hacking or viruses. This is a very safe app to use (especially if you're linking your bank account). The mileage tracker is pretty darn close to accurate, however, for some reason all gps mileage trackers will say you drove if you go for hike/walk. So just be aware of that. All in all, these programmers know what they're doing and have done an excellent job creating a USER FRIENDLY app. Get it.
Great but I wish the invoice options were better
by KijedahMaleigh on 2019/02/08 16:21
I love the app! Everything runs smoothly between the app and online. The only thing I don’t like are the invoice options. I use a different app to send customers invoices because this app doesn’t let you create one invoice and split the payment options and dates. I require a deposit immediately before the actual due date but I’d have to make 2 separate invoices instead of just one with the option to split payment. I also don’t like that when I create an invoice it doesn’t give the option to save. You HAVE to email the invoice to save it. I don’t use this app to send invoices I use square but I want to insert my potential income in QuickBooks as well. I would definitely like the option to just save an invoice without having to email it and maybe an option to be able to connect with the square account like it connects to bank accounts and PayPal.
Love it now that I got help with how to use it
by Gail BWBG on 2018/12/31 18:55
At first I was ready to cancel because I couldn’t figure out how to easily photograph receipts to keep track of businesses expenses. I have a jewelry business selling on Etsy and at Art fairs and wanted something that would let me enter expenses by photographing receipts and a way I could keep records on my iPhone and iPad rather than a computer. This program works very well for that . I contacted customer service and they told me I could enter receipts by going to transactions then either add expense manually or add income manually. This allows me to enter the amount then take a picture which stores the receipt. Perfect! The app will also track you mileage as you drive which is great for my purposes. I can quickly add income as I get checks and as I do an Art Fair. I also connected my Etsy account so it automatically imports my income and transaction fees. This is just what I was looking for.
Love The App Interface & Tracking But The Background Usage
by M. Reeves on 2019/06/02 06:54
I love the way this app tracks mileage, transactions, and invoices. It is ideal for all of my small business needs. The only problem I have is the amount of battery it uses on my phone. I have a IPhone I have had for 2 years now and have never had issues ever but after having this months a little over 3 months I notice my battery life is terribly drained. I have a job where I can charge my phone all day at will be even then I find myself closing out all extra apps, turning brightness to minimal, and checking daily what my phone battery health looks like, all while wondering if I am needing to update my phone or app because of a functionality issue. I have set up an appointment with Apple to where I don’t know what else to do. I also on the weekends turned my location off and notice that my phone is near perfect again making me realize the background usage really impedes my phone.
Great app, mileage tracking uses too much battery.
by Nhowar on 2019/03/26 14:34
I’ve been using this app for about a month now, it’s been extremely helpful however there are some issues. First I wish there was an iPad app, but that’s no big deal. Biggest problem is the battery usage. If you have auto mileage tracking on, it will use 10% of your battery. It’s using your gps location 24/7. For most self employed people, your battery is important! Perhaps they can devise a better way to auto track miles without killing the battery. For example, Google maps records and logs my locations without draining my battery. Or perhaps if you could set it to only track miles when Bluetooth is connected to a specific vehicle? I think this would be extremely useful, because it wouldn’t track miles if I was in somebody else’s car. Anytime I get in my car my phone is connected to it via Bluetooth.
Great for a Musician Business With Only One Flaw
by #1WeirdAlFan on 2019/10/11 06:01
I having been using QuickBooks Online for a while and think it is great. As someone who is a self employed musician, I love the ease of being able to store contacts in it and have quick access to create invoices and keep info when giving estimates for my overall price for the gig. However, I didn’t have the ability to count the miles to and from gigs that is where QuickBooks Self Employed came. Once I downloaded the app using the free trial offer, I saw that I could track my miles to and from my gigs and that caused me to sign up along with being able to see my income as my profit. The only thing I do not like about the Self Employed version is the fact that I cannot save my client’s info, give estimates, or create different categories. Overall great product.
Just soso
by Milestones, LLC on 2018/03/20 12:32
I signed up in February and am still learning how to best use the app. I own a small business that provides health care based services to kids. The app is appropriately sales-based as more businesses are such. It does a good job with transactions, and it is cool looking at the reports. I can easily send invoices and mark payments. My bank account got a ton easier to categorize. I am not financially minded, so I admit I get hung up in the unimportant details. I attend continuing education, and other uncategorized expenses that I would prefer to track individually. I am sure my accountant cares less about that, though. My beef is with the mileage feature. There are entries recorded that are miles off. I am looking for an entry that was 9 miles long and it was recorded as almost 15 (it just never stopped when I stopped). Little entries that are 2 mile drives enter at nearly 5. It is only 2 or 3 a week, but it tales time and more tracking than I think it should take.
Has potential but missing basic features & functionality
by Sivanybe on 2018/03/13 05:03
I turned to Quickbooks in an effort to streamline my accounting. I’m still using the free trial period and have nearly inputted three months of expenses but the deeper I dive, the more disappointed I am. Although I’ll admit that because I’ve spent so much time and energy getting every into the app, I’ll most likely end up paying to keep it. In some aspects the app is great - storing receipt photos, quick glance summary, etc. However, it lacks some really basic functionality/features/capabilities and it’s extremely frustrating because something seemingly simple like categorizing expenses takes a painfully long time because an expense doesn’t fit into the options given and there’s no way to create or rename a category. A customer service rep advised me that the categories are straight from the IRS Schedule C however, a schedule C makes a distinction between raw materials, shipping supplies and office supplies. Quickbooks does not. It would also be nice to be able to select several transactions at once and categorize them or exclude them with the click of a drop down. It’s absurd to have to go into every transaction manually when this basic function exists even in my email account. The mileage portion of the app doesn’t always work even though it’s set to auto track. I have MileIQ running concurrently and it tracks every mile accurately. And lastly, why is Square not supported?
Love this app as a super valuable business tool!
by SarahSublime on 2019/11/18 04:38
I love that this app will track my trips and that I can also auto categorize many of my typical business expenses! I get so overwhelmed with a paper mess, and the ability to snapshot my business pertinent receipts is a wonderful space saving feature! My only disappointment as some one that commutes ALOT between job locations is that this app does not yet have the ability to auto categorize certain locations as business trips. It’s currently the middle of November, and I have over 500 trips to categorize! I just can’t seem to catch up! 🤪 I called CS a couple months ago and was told auto categorizing trips was a feature in the works. I’m hoping that it’s released before the end of the year! Overall though, I am very pleased with this program as an invaluable business tool and look forward to using it for years to come!
Do NOT trust this app to track mileage.
by flymiester on 2020/02/21 02:52
I’ve been using this app since the beginning of the year. I have not used all the features but do have an Intuit account. As a rideshare driver I get free access to premium features. 1. Mileage tracking is abysmal. This is the worst app I’ve ever used for mileage tracking. I used to use Mileage IQ but that costs $60 a year and is quite accurate. I also have been using Stride Tax as a backup to this app. This app does not accurately track mileage, very memory intensive and doesn’t even log some rides. I have auto start enabled. I’m running the latest iOS 13 on my iPhone 8S. 2. You cannot see the current trip you’re on or end it manually. You have to wait at lest 5 minutes for it to time out before it shows up in trips to be reviewed. Also I’d like to end it manually so I can start another trip for a different purpose. 3. It seems the app engineers give two s$&ts about this app. I have to add trips manually it completely misses. Make sure you use an additional mileage tracker. DON’T TRUST THIS APP TO TRACK YOUR MILEAGE!!
Great tools to have for self-employed

This App is very useful not just with rideshare individual. It can be useful for other occupations as well as regular workforce personnel. It does all the math on your receipts, auto categorize it, user can import/export email data. Track your earning, expense, mileage. As well as pre-fill your tax form. Link your bank, created invoice for payment. There is a feed for using invoice services. Which i dont understand, because ur paying a subscription monthly. Which I assumes it should be free. I guess $10/month is not enough. If your generating 10/20 invoice a month. Your subs just became more than $10 already. Also. “Your Name Are Your Business Name by default” because you pay taxes under that social security. If you choose anything other than your name. You will have to register and get a business EIN.
iOS 11 compatible

It seems to work perfectly now after the last update. I use this to keep track of my rideshare mileage and to separate personal from business income and expenses transactions. IMO, it’s a complete all in one app that gives you what you need every tax quarter or season. My only gripe is that, and it may just be personal preference - but I wish the maps for each trip showed the actual route taken from point A to point B. If I were auditing, I would question a log that’s 55 total miles with what looks like a 5 mile separation from point A to B on the map. The in-between trips and round a bouts in town are not very transparent -not sure if this was intended. It is possible to track routes- there’s only one app in the App Store that actually does this well, but it’s not as complete as this app.
Simplified, Basic Self-Employed Accounting - Great for receipt archiving
by Magnusrf on 2020/04/13 10:26
I use QB Self Employed as a simple back up to my quickbooks desktop. It automatically downloads transactions from Etsy, PayPal and many banks so I can get a quick overview of my financials. The most important feature is to upload and store digital copies of my receipts. The AI technology is amazing at scanning receipts and pulling data from them. The $12 a month price for the service is good deal for that feature. Plus I also like how I can keep track of my personal expenses to make better budgeting decisions. I love how the app keeps me up to date with my current financial overview. But any proper small business will need to use a more advanced version of quickbooks with full chart of account and balance sheet reporting. That is not available with Quickbooks self employed.
We LOVE this ap- THANKS, QuickBooks!
by EdwinaSerrafina on 2019/01/19 22:46
This application is absolutely perfect for our small company. It is so easy to learn and easy to use and keep updated. We adore the feature of connecting our bank accounts and being able to mark certain places or for the same assignment each time automatically. There are some places that, quite frankly, we will only get our inventory, parts, business services and whatnot and it’s nice to have those automatically assigned it to a business category or as a personal expense without us manually having to do it. I really love this application and it’s ease-of-use! We HIGHLY recommend this for any small and medium-size company. It will make the tax filing an absolute breeze this year, which has been an absolute nightmare in previous years that I deplore doing each time.
A Business Essential!
by joihearts on 2017/10/29 15:54
Using this app has streamlined all my needs - money in, money out, mileage, etc. - into one location. Having it all in one place AND being able to set rules for reoccurring transactions has saved me a lot of time which, as a business owner, in invaluable. Sending a customized invoice is a breeze and it even allows you to see when it’s been viewed and resend if necessary. Takes a lot of the awkwardness out of having to follow up with clients about payment for goods and services. I love being able to see all my transactions in various charts and graphs for a quick visual of my spending/earning ratio as well as a quarterly tax estimate to keep you honest with the IRS. If you’re an entrepreneur - particularly a solopreneur - I would HIGHLY recommend using quick books self employed!
Useless if you have more than one gig
by CiCiNoel222 on 2020/06/30 16:40
I’m self-employed and work in the gig economy. I do a mix of independent contractor work, but QB self-employment can only accommodate one gig. It’s features are pretty basic for the cost, the mileage tracker will drain your battery faster too, which isn’t helpful if you’re out driving to gigs all day. I tried to cancel my subscription in the app and it just keeps saying “wait don’t go!” Then won’t actually cancel my subscription. I tried to get help and their bot keeps saying to do the exact steps I’ve been doing to cancel, but on a computer. Why is there an option to cancel on the mobile app if you need a computer to do it? I’m not impressed with the app, would rather just keep track of everything manually than pay for partial record keeping and a dead phone. This would work great for someone only working one gig, and who doesn’t need their phone through their gig.
Payment issues/No assistance
by Jackson2910 on 2019/07/12 21:00
My invoice was marked as paid, it’s been about 4 weeks or so and I’m still waiting on the money to be deposited into my account. I contacted support through the app chat and was told they can’t help me with that and that I need to contact a different department. The support department hours conflict with my work schedule and there are no after hours support. Don’t expect to get assistance with any issues. On top of not getting paid a refund was given to the customer for overpayment. *UPDATE* I finally made contact with the support department. I was advised I didn’t receive payment because the payment was disputed by the customer. After further review by support it was determined it wasn’t disputed by the customer and that it was labeled as disputed due to the customer having insufficient funds. They explained I should have received an email notifying me of the disputed transaction, which I did not receive. They explained that there was nothing they could do and that I would have to get in contact with the customer for payment. I am no longer in contact with the customer although if I would have been properly notified I could have handled the situation when I was still in contact. So not only did I not receive payment, the customer accepted the refund for overpayment knowing they did not make the payment. The refund was only given because notification from intuit advised I had been paid. This service is completely unreliable.
Almost good, except for invoicing
by sapphiresky83 on 2019/08/20 02:05
The good: -Automatic mileage tracking -Automatic download of banking/credit card trans for quick and easy expense tracking. -Tax awareness and live tracking. The bad: The invoice feature is just plain awful. Intuit could make it better, but they won’t and I will get into that with this list: 1. There are no customization options for invoices. 2. No option to create items for quick repeated entries. 3. No option to manage customers/clients outside of the invoice function. Here is the truly awful: 1. No easy option to email a pdf version of an invoice. When you email from the app it sends an html email to the recipient and they click on a web link to view a badly formatted version of the invoice online. This has to be due to the fact that intuit wants you to use their payment processing because they want to take your money for each transaction. This is evident by the fact that there is no option to turn the payment processing off and it is in your face every time you create an invoice. Now there is a way to email a pdf version I found and can do on my phone, but then there is no option to mark the invoice as “sent.” Unless you email through the app as described below. If I decide to keep this service (and not cancel and ask for a refund) I will not be using the invoice feature as it is nothing more than a ploy by intuit to grab more of your money.
Ambivalent Appreciation for the App
by Ehannahw on 2018/04/23 01:36
I really love most of the things this app does. I haven’t any problems with tracking my mileage. I personally don’t sync my bank account with the app so that’s not an issue for me because I use my bank for personal reasons so it’s easier for me to just manually enter what I need. I love that I can upload a picture of a receipt to my transactions. My biggest issue with this app is the fact that I cannot send my customers an electronic receipt when they’ve paid me!!! This is so unprofessional!!! Also I’d like to be able to send an invoice to more than one person at the same time. Theses are very simple things to add on as features. Also, there’s no way to add tax or to compute the fee that I lose every time customers pay me electronically. I’d have to manually calculate. Additionally, the customer service is absolutely deplorable. I’ve called or emailed or chatted with very little resolve.
Worst service !!
by Gene40 on 2018/09/09 17:00
I was starting a new company and I use this service following their good ideas on how to bill my clients in a discrete manner. Everyone was happy until one of my clients accidentally forgot about her transaction and opened a dispute. Intuit immediately started to withdraw that money that I no longer had on my account. They continued trying to get the money from my account several times and create a huge amount of fee!! BE AWARE!! They said I can’t spend or reinvest my money, I have to let the money sit in my account for several months in case a dispute happens. This just gets interesting, my client fixed the problem and now Intuit wants to charge me a lot of fees because my account didn't have the amount on my account and they weren't able to get the disputed money without consulting me. No matter it wasn't my fault they are now harassing me to pay the fees for having a dispute (no matter it wasn't my fault and it was legitimate transaction) and for not having the amount on my account for them to hold the funds.
Used to love frustrating
by Ap197 on 2018/06/27 00:41
I used to love this app...mileage tracking has become an issue. I have already done all the steps given to me by customer service but they didn’t change anything. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Seemed to fix the problem...but that didn’t last long. I never know which day it is going to track and which day it isn’t so that has led to lost mileage entries and having to do it manually defeats the purpose. Also no longer being able to stayed signed into my account is frustrating. If I need to back out and look at something else on my phone I am always asked to enter password or fingerprint to open...I can understand this if there is extended time between opening but not just looking at my notes and then jumping back only to have to start over again. The point of this was to make logging information and keeping track of my business expenses easier not more work.
Quite unreliable
by MakerPDX on 2020/02/01 17:33
The mobile app is very unreliable, especially with mileage tracking. Trips often don’t show up for days, but if you fully quit the app (even restart phone) they appear. I’ve entered trips manually that did not show up, then found the duplicate a day or two later. Too much baby sitting what is supposed to be a highly automated system. Also got message there was a connection problem with my credit card. The problem was with my personal card (which I had to cancel due to fraud), so I deleted that card. The problem was my business card is with the same bank and it deleted everything with that bank. When I reconnected my business card, I had to go through every transaction for the year to categorize them and rescan all the receipts. Huge time sink. I will dump this app if these kinds of issues persist. It is not a good value and might be more work than my old manual spreadsheet method.
Receipt scanning workflow is ridiculous
by G.B. in CA on 2019/01/20 02:07
You want to scan your receipt immediately after purchase so you don’t lose it or forget, right? Wrong. When the transaction comes in from the bank, usually the next day, it won’t link it to the receipt you scanned because the dates aren’t the same. So you get two transactions. QB wants you to wait until the transaction processes about 3 days later (note NOT when the transaction first appears because you can’t do ANYTHING with it while it’s pending like add a note or category) and THEN scan the receipt. Which you’ll forget to do, or have lost it, or otherwise just get behind and never get around to it. BAD design. Concur let’s you scan a receipt into a library and then you can go join it to a transaction later. Which is better but still not as good as just using a simple algorithm that id the vendor and amount are identical and the date within a day or two its the same transaction, or if that’s too risky just let the user MERGE two transactions
