Track Your Business Expenses with This Spreadsheet

Tracking our business expenses is as important as tracking our incomes. Uncontrolled expenses can quickly ruin our earnings.

When I started being self-employed, I didn’t track my expenses. I didn’t know what my money was going. I was afraid of expending money and very insecure of investing money to grow my business.

After a while, I created a spreadsheet to track my business expenses, and I’ve been improving it since then.

Today I’m sharing this automated spreadsheet with you.

Using this spreadsheet is very easy. Add the business expenses you pay once a year in the annually list, add those you pay once a month in the monthly list, and those that you pay them just once in the variable list.
That’s all. Everything is automated.

When a new year comes, duplicate the sheet and erase the variable expenses. If you cancel or modify any of your fixed expenses, just update the spreadsheet.


Accounting can be boring but is an essential part of business. The process becomes very easy using this spreadsheet. Just add the expenses immediately after you pay them.

Even if you work with an accountant or a bookkeeper, using this spreadsheet will help you to be in control of your expenses and know exactly where your money is going.
