How instabooks is different from Xero, QuickBooks, MYOB and Sage?

With instabooks you don’t have to worry about chart of accounts, cash or accrual system, double entry accounting, journal entry, ledgers and other distractions.

I’m a booked out independent sales consultant, sell me!

Based on a report by NAB and PWC, small businesses spend about 4 hours per week on DIY bookkeeping. Instabooks reduces the 4 unbilled hours to only 4 minutes per week, freeing up 200 hours that cost $7,000 annually. instabooks also saves about $1,500 paid to external bookkeepers.

I’m a builder, tell me why real time bookkeeping is superior?

Construction project costs are highly volatile, the most accurate estimations are only valid for a month or even a week. A real time bookkeeping solution allows builders to carefully monitor cash flow of various projects in real time, allarming cost increases and unbudgeted due payments.

With traditional bookkeeping you have to rely on previous month bank statements, you already know what happened last month, not useful at all.

I’m a tech entrepreneur why would I need financial statements?

Tech entrepreneurship is all about a laptop, GIT and 5 star reviews. That’s why very often tech entrepreneurs’ loan applications are declined by banks due to lack of collaterals. On the other hand, entrepreneurs have sufficient cash flow to indicated their creditworthiness to banks but they don’t have access to financial statements to prove their cashflow and profit. With instabooks you are only 4 second away from your prepared financial statements. The next step is launch, growth and success.


Switching from high tech tasks to bookkeeping reduces the team's contribution in our core operation and literally kills our genius. instabooks gets rid of the bookkeeping bottleneck.


IOT founder

By my $7,000 saving on manual bookkeeping, I’ll leave a deposit for a new Ute.



instabooks is a minimalist bookkeeping app that sparks joy by decluttering my business life. I’m going to enjoy the newly freed up 4 hours of DIY bookkeeping tasks.


Wellbeing consultant

I strongly believe that the weekly 4 hours I used to spend on preparing my journal and ledger to pay taxes was a forced labour by the taxman. I’m glad that it’s been reduced to 4 minutes.



It’s not only about cost saving, with 4 hours extra time weekly I can finally catch up with season 8 of Game of Thrones.


Marketing consultant

I used to hate bookkeeping a lot but now I hate it a bit less. Thanks instabooks!
