Alternative invoicing apps
Various invoicing solutions are available in Australia, but many have flaws, such as only being accessible in a browser.
Aussie bookkeeping company Rounded has an accounting app rated highly by users, but its freelancer-focused invoicing is not as comprehensive as leading alternatives. Out of all accounting software, QuickBooks, FreshBooks, Zoho Books and Sage remain competitive also for invoicing. If you have an accountant or bookkeeper on your team, it’s fair to ask them which they prefer and see if its invoice features align with your needs.
Many have heard about Wave, a low-cost, US-based invoice solution, but this is no longer open to Australian customers.
Certain payment platforms also compete. For example, EFTPOS company Tyro has a basic invoice option confusingly called an “ecommerce feature”, but this is only available in a browser. Stripe’s invoices are more developed in the web portal, while its mobile app is more limited.
Alternatively, you can sign up for a business current account with invoicing. One such option is CommBank, but their invoicing is only accessible through its browser-based NetBank portal.
