Bookkeeping

Double-entry bookkeeping.

Connect Bank Accounts

Link your bank accounts for up-to-date transaction information with little or no manual data entry.

This means the ability to accept credit card or echeck payments within your accounting software, either through its own payment portal or via a third-party integration like PayPal or Square. Most online payments involve a separate processing fee.

Tax Preparation

Some accounting software can also be used to prepare taxes for your firm so you can review, approve, and even pay your taxes all in one place.

Reporting

Businesses need reports to help assess key business performance indicators like profit and accounts receivable. Some products have more robust reporting features than others.

Foreign Currencies

Check Printing

Contact Management

Store contacts for invoicing or billing purposes.

User Management

Additional Details about ZipBooks

Machine Learning. As you start repeating transactions, clients, and vendors, ZipBooks will start to recognize those transactions and begin tagging those transactions and contacts automatically. From those tags, you can make transactions and accounts easier to find and create customized reports for legal accounting software.

Security. ZipBooks uses data centers to store your data that have on-site security guards and biometrics to restrict access only to authorized individuals. They also have third-party security experts run routine audits to make sure their security measures are up to the highest industry standards. Your data is backed up in a number of different locations so you’ll always have cloud access as long as you have a connection.

Payroll. While ZipBooks does not have payroll features, they work closely with Gusto (and are working on a Gusto integration) to manage your payroll needs. If you use a different payroll provider, ZipBooks can help you import that data into its software as well.
