The ability to couple this product with Intuit's payroll service allows for the easiest accounting you could ask for. Also, Customer Service goes the extra mile whenever there is an issue. They stay on the line until there is a resolution!

Cons

I don't like being "up-sold". I am content with the product I have and don't need to be constantly bombarded with offers to upgrade.

I love that they offer this for non profit, which I am assuming that means they allow the company to use the product at a cheaper cost. Which is great because the company does so much to help the students and this helps them out so we can all continue to help each other out.

Again I do not have any cons for this product. The technology and features are great and very easy to use. Great product.

I've been using Quickbooks for a little over 5 years. I'm always learning better processes and how to financially manage my non-profit with ease and comfort.

I enjoy the ease of setting up new company files and effective recording. Automatic updates is awesome!

Cons

There is not enough hands on training available in my area. I'm a quick learner but sometimes it's difficult to find the best solution to my questions.

I am a long-time user, and will continue to be!

Pros

The QuickBooks interface has always been, and continues to be, extremely easy to navigate. It is very intuitive (pardon the pun!) and is fairly consistent across different versions, which I found important when I was a sole practioner.

Cons

The lack of ability to perform consolidations places what I believe to be the only severe limitation on this product. Thus, if you operate more than one entity, it is not as useful a product.

Pros

It’s cheap, easy to use. If you were a single-fund NPO, with a single designation, it might work if you have time to work around the limitations.

Cons

QB-“Non-Profit” does not comply with FAS 116 and FAS 117. It has no “dimension” for Fund Class (Temporarily or permantly restricted, unrestricted, etc. It needs an additional dimension - “Designation”, which is a subset of the Fund Class. It has neither of these. It has no process to update the net assets for the activity of each year in these Fund Classes and designations, which don’t exist.

Pros

- All of the basics are here! Even has nonprofit-specific reports. Any CRM should integrate with Quickbooks seamlessly.

Cons

- To use the Nonprofit-specific reports, you must be using customers (donors). Some CRM's do not import with customers here (for example, one organization I work with's CRM imports the donor name into the Memo field, so the nonprofit reports are useless to them).

If your company is starting out. You can't go wrong with Quickbooks. Most if not all Accountants and CPA firms are experts at using Quickbooks.

Pros

Great for Non-profits or small businesses starting out. Simple to use. Most widely uses bookkeeping software.

Cons

It is not cloud-based.The software cannot upload receipts. In a paperless era that we are in this would be a vast improvement to have. I wished Quickbooks Online had the same features and functionality as the desktop version. However, it does not.

I don't like the lack of support after two years. But the community of QuickBooks users is so large that help can be found almost anywhere.

Pros

This program is customizable to the needs of each Nonprofit. It can be used as a standalone program or a networked financial database. It has all the necessary functions to do all daily, monthly, and yearly financial paperwork for a small to medium-sized Non-profit.

Cons

The learning curve can be steep. Prior experience with the program or with accounting is very useful. Set up should be done by a professional CPA to ensure it's tracking all the needed items for IRS reporting.

Would like to see this product be more versatile. I use it with Blackbaud products and have some difficulties with imports into QuickBooks. Sometimes all the information I need does not get pulled in. Otherwise, the product is usable.

Pros

It is fairly easy to use, if you are used to this form of accounting. The layout allows for ease in finding items. Search capability is good, if you type in exactly what you are looking for. Great to use for general ledgers, income and expenses.

Cons

Does not interact well with some database programs and does not import and export some needed information. Also, keeping a record of information is difficult, unless it is number related.

This revolutionary tool changed the way we managed finances. We used to have accounting problems that led to inaccurate project reports. Fortunately, we found this software and have since enjoyed working with it. It helps us to keep record and generate reports when the need arises.

Pros

Non-profit organizations depend on proper management of funds. This tool helps us keep track of donations, expenses and keep our records straight. It is relatively easy to use even for non accountants like me. It comes with customization features to suit the specific needs of non-profit entities.

Cons

It is not free. The basic accounting knowledge is necessary. It should be set up by an accounting professional to avoid any issues. I do not thinks I have any real negative aspect that I don't like about it.

Quickbooks is a very effective software with great advantages. It is user friendly and makes keeping the books organized.

Pros

I like that this software provides use for non-profit organizations. The accounting is a bit different for such entities and Quickbooks considers these factors into the program.

Cons

You can only use accounts receivable or accounts payable accounts in one transaction. If there are various entries to edit you must do them one at a time. Net income for restricted funds closes to the unrestricted equity account rather than the restricted fund balance. This causes a need to create an additional entry to adjust this.

It never felt like the non-profit version held back any of the features we needed in order to thoroughly account for our non-profit revenue & expenses. I loved that we could customize the chart of accounts which makes it much easier when preparing our 990 and other financial reports. Quickbooks made it very easy to connect with our bank and import transaction data, which is a huge time save.

Pros

My company uses Quickbooks Nonprofit specifically for payroll services. It has certain features absent from quickbooks online. Namely the ability to use multiple classes for an individual.
The software is very affordable and if you work for a small to medium sized nonprofit organization, this is probably the best value.
The software is very user friendly, and even a non-accountant can be quite proficient.

Cons

The software is not easily transfered to other software programs. For instance, even when you export a report to Excel, it includes blank spaces between columns, and some include row headers in different columns. This makes some cleaning up necessary if a pivot table is desired.

Makes it easy to make invoices and donation statements. Nice way to see customer history and keep up with who owes money and who doesn't.

We are able to use Quickbooks to carry out all of our financial functions and easily keep track of everything. I would definitely use it unless you need high volume programs and can afford software that integrates other functions (like donor tracking, record keeping, etc)

Pros

QuickBooks Non-Profit is an excellent choice for nonprofit accounting. IT is very easy to enter information, make adjustments and run reports. As a nonprofit, we are constantly generating that information for grants and donors - so it is very easy.

Cons

Managing donor data is easy to a point, if you have another donor database you might run into some difficulty trying to track contributions or donations.

I'm beyond pleased to see how easy QuickBooks has made managing your organization, and appreciate the review. With this said. I'd like to discuss which point the donor database gives you trouble. Because the system easily integrates with other programs, I'll find steps you can take to keep tracking simple. Could you send me an email directly at qbcares@intuit.com?

I want you to have all the info you deserve about why support incurs a fee and the reasons behind updates, Sue. While many subscription-based products have support included in the monthly charge (like Online), our standalone Desktop products are billed once upon purchase. Instead of charging more for the product itself, the price is kept at a lower rate by offering advanced support separately. There's more about support plans, and what you can still get without them, at https://community.intuit.com/articles/1501198. Additionally, the need to upgrade the program, and discontinue older products, is a decision predicated on the assurance you will receive top of the line software and support. As older products are retired, all attention can be given to the most secure and feature-laden service on the market.

Before I forget, thanks for reaching out with your review. Happy filming to you and your team at Rehoboth Beach Film Society, by the way. Break a leg!

Reporting is mostly good, easy entries solving the double entry accounting needed in a single entry; vendor set up is easy;customer invoicing is streamlined; bill paying is clear

Cons

This software will not perform detailed reports for donor tracking; cannot compare actual to budgeted costs at a single point in time for actuals, that is, cannot run a report to show actuals to date versus an annual budget which is the most frustrating thing about quickbooks, reporting has to be to a month or a year compared to the same period.

We had spent entirely too much money on having an in house book keeper and once we moved to this, it saved us time and money.

Cons

The user interface could be a little more user friendly. While they do a decent job, I can understand why others have said their staff and volunteers have had trouble.

It saves a lot of time and you can customize everything and track all the information. I love the feature of invoices.

Cons

I find it difficult to budget analysis and evaluation. It may also take time to get used to for a beginner but it's worth it.

Quickbooks is pretty user friendly. Gives prompts to let you know if what you are doing could cause a problem.

Cons

Probably customer service. Hard to get a hold of someone and when you do they are hard to understand.

Program fits the needs of our small non-profit business and reduces significant time for accounting and bookkeeping records.

Pros

Entering data, printing reports, searching for transactions are simple to do. Multiple users can be limited to their specific bookkeeping tasks. Year end information and tax information is easily accessible.

Cons

The interface isn't as intuitive as I'd like for searching "how to" do a particular task. Such as setting up your email preferences.

Merchant activity is not applied automatically as promised if you have more than one GL account
Reports are very rigid
It does not have a report designer that gives the flexibility to download information
Unable to upload activity from Excel without a 3rd party software
It does not have account reconciliation system to keep track of balance sheet accounts

Everyone knows QuickBooks. If you are a non-profit, then even better! You now have Quickbooks functionality, built with all the things a 501(c)3 needs to keep their books in order. You no longer have to worry about the IRS audit. Instead, just keep up to date on your QuickBooks Non-Profit tasks, and you will be set!

Cons

Pricing model for this is a bit funky. You are paying for a higher end system. But I feel like QuickBooks should do more to cater to the budget strapped non-profit corporations. If you are looking for something for more value, you can certainly find it.

It's possible that the version you are using has more features than you need. Take a look at our products page to see if there is a better fit: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/pricing/.

I loved the detailed reporting that Quickbooks for Non-Profits provided, and the similarity with Quickbooks for Businesses, so that volunteers who were already trained in the Business version could easily mange the Non-Profit version.

Cons

I found setting up the Non-Profit version of Quickbooks a little awkward. I wish it had been transformed more into the common language of non-profits.

Thanks for the great review! I'm glad to hear the reporting is working well for you.

To have your company reflect things like Donors and Revenue & Expenditures you just need to change a couple options in Account and Settings in the Gear menu. Company settings will have a Tax form option you can switch to Non-Profit and then go to the Advanced tab for changing the Customer label to whatever your company needs.

Let us know if you need any other help setting up your account for running a non-profit!
