Organizational Help

This company allows you to place your files throughout its site anywhere to organize your expenses however you would like. It keeps folders and tabs to help it feel clean and look clean. One of The Neat Company’s goals is to help companies and individuals stay “neat.”


The Bad

  • Pricing


The Neat Company pricing is dependent on the plan and if a company chooses to pay annually or monthly:

  • Lite(Basic Plan): $89.99 per year or $8.99 per month
  • Premium: $149.99 per year or $14.99 per month
  • Business: $249.99 per year or $24.99 per month

Although its premium packages are cheap for the industry, its basic plan is a little more expensive. This makes it better for companies but harder on freelancers and independent contractors.


The Bottom Line

The Neat Company, although it does cost a bit more for its basic package, offers lots of benefits to its customers. Along with its expense management services, it is helpful in managing cash flow, collaborating with employees, scanning receipts and documents, and helping your company stay “neat.”

When having a problem when scanning documents I called the first time and they tried hard to help but it only lasted a week. The second time I called Jolyn was a big help and got my problem fixed
