    I use Billings now (just updated to 3.5.4) but wouldn’t mind reading another review of it. Unfortunately the poll is missing from the page though.

    One thing i am missing in just about any of these applications, is different tax-rates. In the Netherlands (and in quite a few other countries in europe i suppose) we have 2 tax-rates. 6% and 19%. And no they are not compound taxes.

    Different services/products have different taxes. For instance, plants and vegetables have a 6% tax, electronics and clothes and labor 19%. That means that if i were to put 100 plants in a clients garden, i’d have to be able to tax 19% on my 2 hours of labor and 6% on the plants themselves.

    Unless i am missing something, i’d love to see that in Billings :)

      I’m pretty sure Billings can do tax rates down to a task level, which should be what you’re looking for?

      Billing -> Preferences -> Taxes (should be right after ‘Currencies’)

      Setup different Tax setups and apply them to whatever project you are working on on the time.

      Wow, how could i have missed that !? Is there also a way to customize the invoice numbering scheme ? For instance ///.

    Billing’s is wonderful. I came from quickbooks on the windows side, QB cost $200 Billings was $40. Billings is much better for my needs.
    It had a slight learning curve, where it took a bit to figure out how to do a few key tasks, but once I was over that, it’s been smooth sailing ever since. For my needs it’s been perfect. It tracks and bills for everything I need as a consultant.

    I use Billings and enjoy it – wouldn’t mind a refresher on updated version. To be honest, I’m really turned off that the iPhone “full” version of this app is more than 1/3 the cost of the actual program.

    • http://www.twitter.com/sswinkels Sebastiaan Swinkels

      Amen, i just picked up the free version today and started fiddling around with it. Then i tried to sync my progress and i was presented with a 15 dollar pricetag… which is exactly why i hate in-app purchases. If something costs money, i’d rather pay it directly and not afterwards.

    I’m a huge fan of Billings, the biggest selling point in my opinion is how easy it is to switch between timed tasks during the day. That alone was worth the $50, and all the other features just make it all that more valuable.

    Big fan. Its not an exaggeration to say that it has actually increased my bottom line by streamlining the time-tracking and subsequent invoicing process. The ability to create completely custom invoices is delicious butter-based icing on the Billings cake. My one gripe is the way that projects and clients are grouped. Its quite different from the way I, and judging from their forums, many others organize their business (simple things like having a group of contacts for a given business together)… But some details aside, its been great and there are workarounds for most things.

    It took me awhile to adapt to Billings after nearly 10 years on Quickbooks, but now I wouldn’t give it up. I use it in conjunction with Daylite to run my business.
