What are y'all doing for bookkeeping?

My company is new and has no revenue, so it's mainly expenses being tracked in a google sheet with receipts being stored in google drive. But honestly, even this minimal usage is a bit annoying.

I've tried looking at various other solutions but they're all so comprehensive with tons of features. I don't need any of that, at least not yet. I only need a simple way to dump my receipts and see an income/expense graph somewhere. Does something like this exist? Because if not I'm going to build it.

How do you folks deal with bookkeeping?

    If you don't need to attach receipt files, my finance app Savings 3 is great for keeping track of small business finances.

      That looks cool, good job!

    Currently, I'm tracking everything in Google sheets as well.

    I also have a separate email address I use for receipts. Every time I receive an invoice, I'll just forward it to that address so it's all in one place come tax time.

    Going with this for now until I outgrow this solution, but it's working fine with me so far.

      This is similar to what I'm doing. It works but feels clunky, and I keep postponing scanning physical receipts, which is just asking for trouble in the long run.

    I used to use Quickbooks Self-employed.
    Later switched to Quickbooks Online.

      How do you like it? Quickbooks is one of the big ones for sure.

        It's good enough for us. Be able to sync transactions from multiple sources. external accountants can be added to the same account. Nothing to complain for the past 4 years or so.
