    It's decent, but there are better platforms out there for small businesses. I prefer Xero.

    Pros

    I like that they give accountants a free version to work with and practice before accepting clients. That was absolutely necessary for me when I first got started.

    Cons

    Their billing system is terrible. I personally have had issues with it and also I've had clients with major problems. Their merchant services caused big cash flow problems for one of my clients and was completely unfair to the user.

    Pros

    Amazing usability and customization! I like the customer support for Quickbooks because they respond quickly and almost always know how to troubleshoot something.

    Cons

    Importing data can be a bit glitchy sometimes and is not always consistent. I would prefer a drag and drop tool that actually works, but all in all it is the best tool out there.

    Intuit needs a better support staff. Sometimes hard to understand and waiting isn't the best when you need to get other things done for your job.

    Pros

    Great at keeping records so you look at previous weeks if needed. If using Direct Deposit goes quick smooth with no issues. Easy to process W2, 1099 and other end of the year paperwork. Also easy to do all the required IRS forms throughout the year.

    Cons

    IF you have to call customer support because it is a Intuit QB company plan on waiting. Sometimes if might only be a 2 minute fix, yet you have to wait on the phone for an hour. Does seem to have a lot of updates, but the updates do keep things right.

    I really liked how user friendly this program was and how well the customer support was to work with when there was an issue.

    Cons

    At first it looks like there is a lot of different ways to get to the same outcome, so you just have to learn the best way for you to get there.

    QB payroll assist has been great. I have needed help from time to time and the customer service is always excellent.

    Pros

    the ease of use. QuickBooks takes the nightmare of payroll and makes it easy and simple. it makes the task a lot less stressful.

    Cons

    it allows you to enter 40+ hours without the system requiring overtime pay be selected. it leaves room for human error.

    experience with payroll is really cool, the software actually calculate the holdings and make life easy for me, definitely a robo accountant that i don't have to pay a salary to. Over all experience : just love it and wish i had it from the beginning of my business. For new users, make use of support. Don't hesitate to call , ask questions , ask again if you have to they will walk you through it. Like i say be dumb and learn it . take the time to do so because the end result is amazing . knowing your finances is straight can save your life. aka....sleep well .

    Pros

    it keep track of your income and expenses by simply attaching your bank account.
    almost does your tax return. lol
    save a lot of time doing your data entry thus cost effective, no need for a special person to enter all your receipts etc
    keep correct info on all money related transaction and balance your check book , can keep your spending and saving on check. I can make adjustments by just looking at my balance sheet. almost cool for idiots to use. :)
    perfect

    Cons

    if i made a mistake and had to go hunting for the problem, but i can just call up support and let them know ( how stupid i was ) and they just fix it. so not really a con.
    for invoicing however , can take a little polishing up especially if i am doing an estimate and need to send it out, i must be extra cautious.

    We have two companies, one is 4 years old, there other is 1.5, it was the perfect option for starting out on our iMac computers. I do feel that we've outgrown at this point, but you cannot beat the price for start-up accounting needs.

    Pros

    Very easy to use! It tracks everything we needed for our two companies (transportation / warehouse logistics and commercial equipment repair). Seamless for reconciling credit cards and bank accounts, easy general journal entries (year end, interest adjustments, etc), progress invoicing and job costing.

    Cons

    After a couple years of use and many transactions, the file becomes unreliable. Customer support said we need to start a new company file each year to avoid broken data (spent many hours on the phone with support multiple times)

    - No filter in Advance aging report.
    - No Indian Bank can directly for payment as software is only accept US banks.
    - Adding Employees is having a long process.
    - Add web connector in QB which makes life more easy.

    "Cheap" price

    Cons

    Constant bugs. When it comes to managing employees and changing from Paper Check to Direct deposit, they are terrible. I have spent more time on customer support than I would've spent doing payroll manually. Most of my issues have been going on for over 4 months.
    Payroll seems to be an afterthought for QB.

    This software is VERY easy to use and navigate. The data input screens are very clear, concise and flexible. I think the flexibility of this software is my favorite thing about it. I also love that I can toggle and use other industry specific versions of QuickBooks. This is an AWESOME feature.

    Cons

    I guess the only thing I am not loving is the need for a complex password for every client. This is quite cumbersome and a relatively new requirement that I am less than pleased with. As an accountant, I will use QB for several clients every day. To enter a password every time is a pain.

    It is VERY easy to use. The interface is simple, and if you have experience with Quicken, Lacerte, or any other Intuit product, it makes it even simpler. Clean reports, good level of customization.

    Cons

    The biggest drawback for me is that you cannot perform consolidations of various entities using QuickBooks. This limits its use to a 1-company platform.
