I found Xero far too complicated and expensive for more than 5 invoices per week - Rounded has it all - for just a small yearly fee - instant help online chat, simple user interface and they take suggestions seriously and update the program as they go.

Rounded has streamlined my invoicing, quoting, tax and general accounting – my only regret is that I didn’t hear about this product sooner! Before Rounded I dreaded EOFY, PAYG and every other ATO related acronym that comes with being a sole trader.

I thought I was quite happy using a spreadsheet for my accounting, but for Australian freelancers, it is so much better. It links to my bank account, helps me with tax and also accepts credit card payment. It makes me look more professional.
