This version is great for:

  • Independent Contractors with no employees
  • QB Self-Employed is ideal for "Shared Economy" jobs like Uber drivers, TaskRabbit taskers, Favor runners, etc
  • This is NOT usable for any business that currently has or will ever have employees

Conclusion:

QuickBooks Self Employed is NOT meant for businesses. Instead this version of QuickBooks is meant for people who generate income working as independent contractors (think Uber drivers, TaskRabbit taskers, Favor runners, etc.). The website and mobile app provide a simple, inexpensive way to track revenue and expenses and plan for income taxes. Use QuickBooks Self Employed to connect your banking and credit card accounts, download your transactions and categorize them as business or personal. The features of this version of QuickBooks are intentionally limited to make it simple to use, but it does include a profit and loss report and estimates your tax liability. The service is also designed to integrate with Turbo Tax Home and Business, which should make tax filing extremely easy.

If you own a business, and you want to use cloud booking software, use one of the QuickBooks Online Products.
