As most small hostel owners know, it's difficult to keep up with the bookkeeping for a micro-business when there are so many other important aspects of the business (like customer service, maintenance etc). Recently, I have been trying out a service called Shoeboxed. So far, Shoeboxed seems fantastic. All one needs to do is stuff all the business receipts in their prepaid blue envelope and the Shoeboxed service will do all the data entry for you. Then at the end of the month, you just have to download a Quicken export file (in QIF format) and import said file into Quicken.
