Thanks for your email, Peter. I went to college with John and I’ve been tracking Bullet developments for the last while. I’ve been meaning to sign up for a while now but as ever, life kept getting in the way.
I plan to populate my account with Jan/Feb data over the coming weeks and I will then be comparing the outputs against what my (expensive) accountants tell me re vat, p30, payslips etc. But so far, so good. Your numbers align to what I would expect. A great start!
I haven’t tried the expenses module yet but I do know what a pain in the ass they are to do using my accountant’s system, so Bullet’s capabilities here could be more than enough to justify the small monthly fee.
I will be very interested to see what you do with the invoice module over the coming weeks – On the forum, I think you mentioned a new version going live soon. A few comments at this point:
- The current capability is very basic and the outputs don’t look very appealing – Given this is the main document sent to clients, it reflects badly on my business right now.
- The bullethq footer is something I’d need to see dropped when I become a paying client.
- An ability to upload additional attachments / content for inclusion in the invoice would be great. (e.g. I use a separate time tracking app that generates reports for my clients at the end of month in PDF format, and I need to include these in my invoices).
- An ability to add a free-text comment / note onto the invoice would be great.
I am sure this invoicing module was part of your MVP and will improve over time – so I’m happy to stick with it for now.
Overall, I really like the product and I hope to be a long-term client. I wish you all the best of luck with it.
