QuickBooks for Mac is financial accounting solution from Intuit for small businesses and accounting professionals. The solution allows users to create professional invoices, track sales and expenses, and manage accounts payable.

QuickBooks provides Mac-specific features. For example, users can embed a notification bar in Mac's menu bar, add reminders to iCalendar and sync contacts with their Mac OS address books. Users can also share data with Windows-based users.

QuickBooks for Mac's online version can be accessed on from anywhere and any device. The online version provides more features than the desktop version, such as automatic scheduling and invoice sending, advanced security and access for up to five users.

QuickBooks for Mac also offers a mobile app for iOS.

Bookkeeping for non-accountants

Pros

I'm clueless when it comes to keeping our books and so the ease of use in QBO is really helpful. If I don't know what to do, I can find an article to tell me how or get someone from their tech staff on the phone to help. It's easy for accountants to log into our account too once we grant them access. I like the ease of processing payments, invoices, and receipts, as well as running reports on how we're doing. Quickbooks online a lot better than the offline version of the software.

Cons

Some features need some accounting knowledge, I will say. Mainly if you don't know how to file a charge or something it doesn't tell you waht to do, but once you know (or learn from the CPA) the features are easy to use in the program.

Payroll

Pros

This software for payroll is a breeze to use. Navigating through the system is super easy!! Love it!

Cons

Downfall is that sometimes the paycheck is delayed or doesn't show up and need to resubmit. This doesn't happen often but it does happen.

Make payroll easier!

Pros

It does all the calculations, notifies you when it's time to submit payroll and liability payments, offers direct deposit for a small reasonable fee. Don't try to run payroll on paper!

Cons

It can be more expensive to do the enhanced payroll, but well worth it

Very easy to use. The capabilities to enter the accountants copy is easy as well.

QuickBooks PayRoll is the Small Biz Solution!

I’ve had great experience with the ACH payroll integrative services. I love being able to print paycheck stubs from anywhere and not having to worry about missing a deadline!

Pros

I love being able to run payroll from anywhere (even the app) while traveling and on the go!

As a small business owner who does a lot of the work myself, it’s critical to be able to pay my staff from anywhere in a simple way!

I also really love the payroll reminders that come on email and the app! It’s also very easy to set different pay rates and everything is as simple as 1-2-3!

Cons

I least like the cost. There is tremendous value provided, but as a small business owner barely able to pay oneself sometimes - the decisions have to be made about cutting apps and services. I would like to see a tiered system for more entrepreneurs to be able to use this feature when I recommend it!

Pros

Quickbook experience in law industry

I would use this for a very small business that doesn't need a complicated accounting system.

Pros

Its definitely is appealing to beginners when it comes to the accounting/bookkeeping and has many features to help navigate the process.

Cons

Its very vague and doesn't necessarily appeal to a certain industry or trade. At times it doesn't synchronize with other softwares as you would like.

Love Quickbooks!

Pros

Cons

There was a learning curve in the beginning for sure, but the newest versions are always improving features.

Quickbooks Online Accountant

I use this to power my bookkeeping business. The support provided by Intuit is very good.

Pros

I like working online and in Chrome browser tabs. This allows me to have any number of screens available at a time.

Cons

The thing that makes it convenient (online) also makes it susceptible to going down with the internet.

Quickbooks for Mac - one of the best sales alternative for your company.

Pros

The invoice system can be customize pretty easy and can save you time. The support service is professional and they offer rapid solutions.

Cons

Migration of data can be time consuming and a bit hard to implement. The year-to-year updates should be discounted.

Great way to direct deposit for employees

Pros

Our employees love how easy it is for us to get their direct deposit in.

Cons

No complaints about this software! We haven't even had a problem so we haven't had to call customer support either!

If you own a Mac laptop and a small business - you should try this.

Pros

I like that this software is specifically designed for Mac laptops. I have had a Mac for 7 years and sometimes find it difficult to find software that works just as well on a Mac as it does on Windows.

Cons

I don't think the software is particularly user-friendly, but they do a good job providing educational material for use.

Automated Payroll on the Cloud

Helps me produce paychecks and track payroll expense more efficiently and it is all on the cloud.

Pros

I like that I can do weekly payroll quickly and accurately in 15 minutes.

Cons

I do not like the formats of the summary reports for employees. I have to backtrack to calculate quarterly reports. There are errors in the quarterly reports run by the software so I have to triple check them before filing.

Very popular, but not the best.

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.

The last book keeping tool you'll need

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.

I'd Rate QuickBooks Payroll a B

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.

Quickbooks review

Pros

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.

simply the best

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.
