Free QuickBooks for Rental Property

If you own a rental property, it’s likely intended to be a passive income generator—not a project that comes with a manual and a tension headache. Unfortunately, QuickBooks was created to be a desktop program that required an accountant to make adjustments. Sound like the side hustle you were envisioning? We didn’t think so.

Fortunately, there’s a better solution. Meet ZipBooks—the free DIY accounting app that makes managing a rental property a breeze.

QuickBooks vs. ZipBooks for Rental Properties

Unless managing your rental properties is your full time job, you probably don’t have time to be tied to desk troubleshooting your accounting software all day long. After feeling frustrated by expensive, outdated accounting softwares that didn’t work for modern cloud-based businesses, we created ZipBooks.

Accessible from anywhere you have an internet connection, ZipBooks was designed to relieve the frustrations of being a small business owner, not add to them.

The Best Accounting App for Tech-savvy Side Hustlers

Rental properties are supposed to be an investment, not a drain on your wallet. So why pay ridiculously high subscription fees for an accounting software that doesn’t meet your needs? ZipBooks has all of the QuickBooks features you were looking for, but with one major bonus: it’s free.

Here are just a few of the awesome accounting features you’ll get with your free account:

Faster Cash – Nobody likes to wait around to be paid, and now you don’t have to. After a customer pays their balance, it can typically take up to 10 days to actually receive your money using other payment vendors. But with ZipBooks, your cash hits your bank in as little as two business days.

Easy Auto-billing – Have tenants with longer leases? No need to send an invoice every month. Easily set your ZipBooks account to auto-bill those clients after the first payment comes through and never worry about remembering again.

ZipBooks Helps Automate Your Rental Property

Transaction Tagging – ZipBooks makes it easier to manage your business’ finances by prompting you to tag all of your transactions as soon as they are made. Tax time is now easier than ever.

Collaborate with Others – Need to give account access to your business partner or spouse? ZipBooks allows you to add as many users as you need.

Painless Time Tracking – Have a housekeeper or a property manager who you pay by the hour? Set custom rates for each employee and assign them their own login so they can clock in and out with ease.

On-the-go Access – Forget about static desktop accounting and property management apps—ZipBooks is your all-in-one property management solution that you can access from anywhere, whether you’re visiting your property or laying in bed.
