Overview

ZarMoney is a cloud accounting software product designed for a range of business types and sizes. It was founded in Los Angeles in 2006 to give these businesses streamlined and inexpensive accounting software tools. 

ZarMoney is most known for its billing, collaboration, productivity, invoicing, and inventory features. Many users also praise its UI as being intuitive and straightforward.

Plans & Pricing

New ZarMoney users get to try the software free for 15-days — no credit card required. Once the trial ends, you have the option of picking one of their paid plans. 

If you aren’t ready to buy, ZarMoney stores your data (invoices, etc.) from your free trial for 60 days.

If you are ready to upgrade, you have three plans to choose from. All come with the same features:

  • Accounts payables/receivables
  • Bookkeeping
  • Inventory management
  • Productivity tools
  • Reporting

With that said, each subsequent plan lets you add more users. Higher plans are, therefore, oriented towards larger businesses.

Entrepreneur

Entrepreneur is built for a single user — perhaps a solopreneur or freelancer. It’s $10 per month, a price you’ll be hard-pressed to find on any other software on the market.

Small Business

Small Business is designed for exactly that: small businesses. You can up to 29 users for $7 per user per month.

Enterprise

Enterprise is designed for smaller medium-sized businesses. It allows for 30 or more users. Enterprise customers gain access to premium support features:

  • Implementation assistance
  • Custom training
  • Dedicated account representative
  • Priority support

As for pricing, ZarMoney customizes your Enterprise quote based on your company’s size and the number of users. With that said, pricing starts at $350 per month. If you’re unsure about Enterprise, ZarMoney offers you a demo instead of a free trial.

Features and Functionality

Dashboard

Many ZarMoney customers praise the software for its informative, straightforward dashboard that offers a snapshot of your business finances. 

You can look over a variety of graphs that demonstrate vital metrics, such as your sales figures. The dashboard slots in other helpful information such as payables history and recent transactions.

Plus, ZarMoney users can customize the dashboard to display the information they’d like to see.

Invoicing/Accounts Receivable

Billing takes a large chunk of time for many small businesses. Fortunately, ZarMoney’s invoicing features make this essential yet time-consuming task a little easier.

For example, you can print, email, or fax your invoices to customers, and you can send them notifications and reminders that they have an invoice due. 

But it gets better when it comes to invoice customization. You can adjust your payment terms, take credit cards over the Internet, create and enforce credit holds/limits, and more. It looks like recurring invoicing is a soon-to-be-added feature, too.

Bill Approval

Complex payable systems plus human error can lead to mistakes on bill payments. Such errors can cause unintended cash flows consequences. 

Fortunately, ZarMoney adds a bill approval feature as an internal control to safeguard against this. You can give authorizing individual users to approve any bills before your company pays them.

Inventory Management

Some accounting software products offer plenty of bookkeeping but lack in other areas.

Not ZarMoney. ZarMoney has a host of inventory management features. You can monitor your inventory levels across several warehouses, and the numbers are updated in real time. 

There are a ton of customization options and advanced inventory features, such as split POs and price adjustments. 

Productivity

Accounting software with productivity tools never hurts. ZarMoney facilitates team collaboration with built-in messaging functionality, task scheduling, file attachment/sharing, permissions and restrictions, and more.

Ease of Use

ZarMoney shines when it comes to UI and general intuitiveness. After getting used to the software and poking around its features, you’ll find that navigating the software is simple. It should be easy to get up and running quickly — and if you get the Enterprise version, of course, ZarMoney will speed this up with custom training and priority support.

Add-ons and Integrations

Despite its excellent pricing, ZarMoney was designed to offer everything a small business needs for accounting/bookkeeping — along with some nice extras. 

As a result, it integrates with just a few other productivity and payment processing products. Some examples include Gusto, Mailchimp, Stripe, Shopify, Zapier.

Does this software create and process tax forms, like W-2s?

answer
Zarmoney does not process actual tax forms inside the system, however, it does automatically calculate sales taxes and prepare tax filing reports. You will also be able to assign a default tax zone to each customer or store location. When used to track your expenses and income, you will be able to easily prepare all the information you need to file taxes.
