    I struggle to find anything good to say about this product so I won't say anything except that it is advertised porrly to clients who suddenly think they are bookkeepers

    Cons

    I have been in bookkeeping for may years and I have never liked this product. I find it difficult to navigate and find basic reports and information.

    I am using QuickBooks for all my businesses. It is a great application because any public accountant would accept your data. It's pretty straightforward and easy to use.

    Cons

    There several issues with their interface. Mostly it can be hard to issue credits and refunds to customers. That procedure is not outlined well.

    Quickbooks for Mac - Because we need a Mac Accounting Hero

    Ease-of-use
    Functionality
    Quality
    Support
    Pros

    There are not a lot of quality products that I was able to find to work for my old macbook. Quickbooks for Mac however fits this mould quite well. The typical quickbooks software for PC is the exact same thing you can expect from a Mac. It allows an alternative for those who wish to do accounting on a Macintosh device.

    Cons

    Quickbooks is still difficult to use initially without training. Make sure to view some tutorials to get the best from this product. It just takes time to master this program. After learning how it works it becomes easier to use and implement for your business.

    Invaluable for QBO ProAdvisors

    Ease-of-use
    Functionality
    Quality
    Support

    I have all my clients in one place and can easily switch from one to another with just a few clicks.

    Pros

    The team behind QBOA is constantly listening and improving the product. It makes my life so much easier to have all my clients int he same place. I can schedule my own work with reminders and to-do list for both me and my clients. The added feature of having my clients files at a click of a button in priceless. I also appreciate the ability to add non-QBO clients now.

    Cons

    Sometimes the interface and/or the links don't work for the training and ProAdvisor page. These don't have anything to do with the client files just resources for me but it can be annoying at times. I also have my doubts the info regarding the profile views and leads from prospective clients is accurate.

    Perfect for entry level professionals!

    Pros

    Quick books are an all in one solution. It is accessible from anywhere .It’s simple user interface makes it easy for even entry level professionals. It creates invoices and receive payments at one go. It has multiple interesting features like automatic mileage tracking, business expense tracking & quarterly tax estimates which makes one’ s life easier. One of the best features is the payroll feature, everything is integrated so it doesn't take long and is calculated for you.

    Cons

    It is perfect for entry level but for growing businesses it lacks advanced features. It has very basic features which lacks advanced & necessary features like depreciation tables & footnotes below financial statements. Reports generated also lacks formatting options and unable to do detailed customization. For example one cannot find a detailed transaction report or summary report.

    Good for small companies with limited transactions

    Ease-of-use
    Functionality
    Quality
    Support
    Pros

    Online accessibility - can work anywhere with an internet connection. Linking to bank and credit card accounts is handy. Linking to Bill.com and Expensify are also easy.

    Cons

    As a controller and an accountant consultant on the side, I would recommend the online version to small businesses with fewer than 5-10 employees and revenues under $1 million that have very few transactions. For companies that have multiple approval layers and AP invoices, you would need an add on app like Bill.com to handle. We use Expensify and Bill.com to handle expense reporting and AP. QuickBooks Enterprise edition would be a better fit for companies with more than a million in sales and more than 10 employees, but costs can add up on that platform. -Approval levels are very broad. If I want to allow someone to add classes, I have to give them access to banking and reports that are only for partners to see. Further a la carte customization for permissions would certainly be handy. -Speed - even with high speed internet, processing multiple AP invoices is very slow compared to the desktop counterpart. -Accounting integration - when allowing accountants access to the company file, downloading the GL needs to go to excel. If the GL is large, it may exceed the line limit for Excel. -Some reports are unable to use the custom fields. This creates problems when the custom fields are critical. in our case, we can't run a report of payments received that includes project numbers. In order to get that report, I need to use Zapier to extract payments as they come in and send them to a google sheet. So the only listing I have for payments listed with our custom fields is in Google sheets!

    Pros

    I love that it is accessible online and that there's a wide variety of features that you can do such as: sending unlimited invoices, tracking expenses and revenues, pay bills, and transact in different currencies. This is especially helpful since I am working with clients from various markets and I never run into problems.

    Cons

    I'd say third party integrations should be improved -- sometimes, the system disconnects and I have to integrate it again, which is time consuming. I would say this is not ideal for enterprise companies though - mostly only for small businesses.

    Pros

    Being an all-in-one program for accounting, including inventory, expenses, invoices, payments, etc is a great thing. Where most situations require multiple different types of software, Quickbooks is really a full-service solution, which is helpful.

    Cons

    While Quickbooks is a complete system, I suggest looking elsewhere. Support is slow, and generally doesn't seem very knowledgeable about their own products. The system itself can be slow, lagging randomly, and has some bugs that make using it a frustrating experience. There are plenty of other options out there now that perform much better, at a lower cost.

    QuickBooks payroll is super easy to use for employee pay and quarter/yearly taxes are a cinch now too.

    I'm accustomed to the platform, so I am able to use it adequately. I have been able to do my own books and then take a report to the accountant once a year to get my taxes done.

    Cons

    You have to sign up for their payroll table updating service annually and the way they do that is not easy. Last week I had them come in to my payroll service and a whole section was removed. I don't like that. The customer service is difficult, at best.

    QB Accountant allows us to open client QB files and work with them easily. It can deal with industry versions and older QB versions as well.

    Cons

    QB isn't always intuitive, and people get themselves in trouble by guessing about how transactions should be booked. Ultimately, it does what you tell it, and that can be good or bad. Sometimes, it's smarter than you think it should be, and makes adjustments that are unexpected, even if technically correct.

    - Very complete: Quickbooks is the granddaddy of bookkeeping apps. If there is a feature anyone has ever needed in the history of humanity, it's here! - Very fast to use once you become reasonably expert.

    Cons

    - Greedy company. They reeeeally want your upgrade fees. When I upgraded my Mac OS, one, and only one, app quit running: Quickbooks. Which meant that my data was held hostage -- NO CHOICE but to upgrade my Quickbooks. - Can be pretty complex for non-bookkkeepers to use

    The ease of use and professional appearance have helped our company's payroll thrive.

    Pros

    This software has helped our small business present ourselves more professionally when paying employees and contractors. It has streamlined our payment process, making it quicker and easier. I no longer have to write out physical checks or trying to rely on an online payment system which I fear may leak my employee's information.

    Cons

    Quickbooks Payroll had a huge learning curve for someone with little accounting background. Therefore, the setup process was frustrating. However, their customer service is excellent and was very helpful.
