The best accounting software: QuickBooks for trucking companies
Trucking accounting software is engineered to aid in decision-making and account needs for your business. This software for trucking will help you track your income and expenses, capture and organize receipts and maximize tax deductions. While on the road, it also has the ability to track your truck mileage and manage your cash flow. In our experience, QuickBooks™ is the most effective accounting software for truckers.
The QuickBooks™ software can handle all of your accounting tasks, such as creating invoices and accepting payments, running reports, and creating and sending estimates to clients. Through QuickBooks™, you will have the option to manage contractors by sending W-9 and tax ID information directly to them. You will also have the option to organize your income and expenses into tax categories, allowing you to file your business’s taxes quickly and efficiently.
At Giersch Group, we are a certified QuickBooks™ Online ProAdvisor, meaning we can train your staff on how to use the software, along with offering you the option to purchase the accounting software at half price.
