Personal finance programs are great for organizing your income and tracking expenses, but they often lack features that many homebased business owners could use, such as invoicing. Now Intuit Inc. has released Quicken Home & Business 98 for Windows ($89.95), a new version of the personal finance program that also delivers easy invoicing, receivables tracking and tax help.
Available for Windows 3.1 and higher, Quicken Home & Business 98 is designed specifically for those whose business and personal finances intermingle, such as consultants and sole proprietors.
Quicken Home & Business includes customizable invoices, which you can personalize by adding your own logo and industry-specific categories. You can also enter invoice information on pre-set client registers; the program then automatically calculates state taxes that need to be applied. Intuit's newest Quicken version offers to make homebased business owners' lives--and businesses--easier to manage.
