How to track your income

There are several ways to track your income. Below, we describe some tools that are often used.

Accounting software

Accounting software such as Exact, Visma, SnelStart, or Acumulus can help you track your income. This software is specially designed for entrepreneurs and freelancers and offers various features, such as invoicing, VAT returns, and bank connections. With this software, you can easily track your income and expenses and prepare your tax return.
