Great For Small Businesses

Pros

I have been using this software for my businesses for over 15 years. I do all of my monthly bookkeeping myself and it's very easy to use. I would recommend it to any small business owner.

Cons

I don't have any major cons except that my accountant often has trouble opening my files. I choose "save for accountant" and he has access to all versions of the software but there are often glitches when we share files. Other than that, we haven't had many issues with it.

An Assest to my Payroll

QuickBooks Payroll helps me and my small business look and act more professional.

Pros

I like that this software provides me with a comprehensive and professional looking platform to keep track of my employees earnings. Once I spent some time playing around with it I found it very intuitive and it is my go-to for all things related to payroll.

Cons

It does take awhile to get used to using it since I just used to do everything with pen and paper before. It can be overwhelming in the beginning.

Meets Accounting Needs

Pros

User friendly and cloud based - so if you're on the go as much as we are then you will appreciate the ability to have the mobile app version.

Cons

There are some reports we would like to see that are unavailable. But for starting out - this is the go to.

Good Option for Keeping Books on Mac

Pros

The Apple Platform is not known for its user-friendliness with many of the accounting softwares out there so QuickBooks coming to Mac was very welcome. The user interface is intuitive, simple to use, and the exportable data is exactly what you would need.

Cons

Because it is for mac, some of the options for export and reporting that exist on PC do not exist here. Kinda a bummer, but an ok product regardless.

Easy to navigate

Pros

The site is easy to navigate and makes transactions easy. Easy to understand and it’s not hard to add or remove a refund

Cons

I don’t like that it saves the persons credit card information. If you’re not careful, the person prior to the next credit card info is saved and will be charged and not the new person info.

Priced fair but a real pain every 2 weeks

Pros

They do all the paperwork submission to the Feds for me and offer direct deposit.

Cons

If you miss the process date time, there is a $100 late fee to process payroll. They date for payroll processing is not ever clear and for the 15 times I have tried to submit payroll, I have not once been able to complete properly on time. This is not my error. I have to contact payroll support every time to help complete.

If you use Quickbooks, this is a no brainer.

Pros

Payroll is easy to set up, and the representative that they assign to help you is knowledgeable and responsive. But FINALLY you can set permissions so that your Quickbooks users who manage invoicing and deposits can't look at payroll. That was really my only gripe, and they've fixed it. Yay!

Cons

After the aforementioned fix, nothing much to report as far as cons go. Pretty solid.

Super easy to use!!

Pros

Quickbooks is a fantastic solution to book keeping. Being able to keep track of hundreds of customers and having invoices linked to each, makes business so much easier! It is very appealing to the eye and learning how to navigate the software is a breeze.

Cons

Quickbooks can be pretty expensive. They do have a limit on transactions, so if you are a bigger company, it may not be for you.

Great Option for Mac Users

Pros

This is a similar product to the original QuickBooks but it has Mac-specific features. This allows you to easily use it if you are used to the Mac interface.

Cons

There are certain features that do not quite add up to the PC version. Also it is difficult to share a file between PC and Mac.

I've been using it for over 5 years and so far it's been good

Overall, I haven't had too many problems. I had to deal with one missed quarterly filing but I think that was the EDD's fault since QB says that it was filed online but EDD says that it wasn't. Other than that, I've been happy.

Pros

It is relatively a cheap option vs hiring an accountant and I haven't gotten into any trouble with IRS so I'm guessing that it's calculations are correct.

Cons

Lack of easy customer support. They really try to get you to solve your own problems with online stuff and no one to answer your questions.

QuickBooks Payroll

For someone with only a few employees it is a good product.

Pros

The ease of being able to process your payroll from any mobile device.

Cons

The software makes set up difficult by trying to automate taxes and deductions vs allowing you to customize your payroll settings like the desktop version. Also the reports for payroll summary or not nearly as detail or customizable as the desktop version.

Highly Recommend

Since implementing QuickBooks Payroll, our process has been streamlined which allowed our team to focus on other tasks which are value-add to the business.

Pros

The support received during setup was outstanding. The whole process was very easy and all of our questions were answered. Since implementing QuickBooks Payroll we have saved a lot of time and frustration. It's great to know that everything is taken care of automatically and our employees like the timeliness.

Cons

I would like a feature to set up multiple employee groups which are on different pay schedules.

Helpful

Pros

QuickBooks has been a great software to use. Its very easy to track all necessary expenses and gives a great overall view of what is going on at any one point.

Cons

My issues are typically my own and have nothing to do with the software/program. I used QuickBooks for PC for a very long time. Its an adjustment having a Mac.

Pros

Great for small businesses, easy to use and makes your life easier and accountants will love you if you use it!

Cons

Not alot really, I enjoy using it so I don't really have issues - reports could improve a little and interaction with other databases would be good.

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
