QuickBooks for Mac and iOS


 

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.

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.

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.

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

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)

Value for Money

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.

Pros

After having a bad experience with Account Edge, we decided to turn to Quickbooks for a refreshing, good system that we could rely on. After using it for sometime, it's been probably the best accounting/payroll/invoicing/estimating program we've had so far. Everything is very simple, user-friendly and not too technical.

Cons

One issue we've had with the program has been, trying to give access to new users is a very hard task to come across. As simple as it sounds, we still haven't managed to get a new user linked to our account to do more work. I've been sharing my ADMIN account which is not advised because not everybody should have the same access.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
