Looking for an alternative to QuickBooks Online?

If you're here to understand the difference between Wingspan and QuickBooks Online, you're in the right place. Wingspan members switch from QuickBooks Online because Wingspan is easier to learn and use, offers benefits like Tax Withholding and is all-in-one.

Simple all-in-one platform built for the business of one

Wingspan is an an all-in-one platform for freelancers to manage their business. QuickBooks Online is a great product if you want to send invoices and track income & expenses. If you want to unify your benefits, bookkeeping, tax withholding and more into one platform, Wingspan could be a better fit for you.

No fees on payments

Wingspan charges no fees to get paid. For bank transfers, QuickBooks Online takes a 1% cut. For credit card payments, Wingspan does not charge any fees and allows you to pass of the 2.9% fee charged by the credit networks to your client.

Set aside for and pay taxes

When you get paid on Wingspan, we can automatically set aside for taxes in a dedicated tax savings account. Quickbooks Online does not automatically set aside for taxes. Like QuickBooks, you can pay the IRS directly from Wingspan. We'll remind you so your taxes never slip through the cracks.

Easy to learn

QuickBooks Online is complex software that has a steep learning curve. Wingspan is designed to be easy to use and simplify the complexity of freelancing. Don't know what the Schedule-C is? No worries, we're here to help.

I love the personalized experience of using Wingspan. My questions are always responded to, even if the immediate answer is that the question is a new one and a solution will be found. The team always follows up and keeps the conversation going until they’re satisfied I have my answer. You can really feel that Wingspan values the relationship with their members.
