Overall it has a great Accounting software to be used in Small Medium Enterprises.

Pros

For all of Small Medium Enterprises, this is the best Accounting Software. Good things of it, it can be merged with many other online transaction software like PayPal, Stirpe and many other online services, which also can ease up your accounting. Automatic invoice sending to client and sink up with your bank accounts for automation of transaction entries. It also can calculate your taxes and return filing without any hasle, either you are in Western Region OR in Middle East region and where ever you belongs to.

Cons

We can not create Custom user of my choice. It has only two pre defined Custom user either for your client and either for your suppliers. No other choices.

Using QBO for Church and Nonprofit Clients

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Overall, I do like QBO and continue to use it for my clients...but definitely has room for improvements ...without raising the monthly fee. It does work well for my remote clients and with Techsoup's partnership with Intuit and help with nonprofits and Lisa London's How to use QBO with churches book that I send to my clients that use QuickBooks Online...it will continue to be a software I recommend.

Pros

QuickBooks Online works well for many of my church and nonprofit clients. My client, my employees, and myself can all work in the same file at the same time. There are tons of videos and how to books that I can refer my clients to for basic tasks. It's basically easy to use...if set up correctly for a church or nonprofit. The class feature works well for tracking restricted or designated funds. Many apps that I use in my business integrate well with QBO such as Bill.com and Hubdoc.

Cons

It ca get pretty "buggy" at times, but usually logging out and clearing my cookies will take care of it...but not always and getting on with support can take quite awhile. Support is sometimes wonderful and sometimes makes me want to pull my hair out! It's a roll of the dice if you will get someone that knows what they are doing or someone that doesn't have a clue =( My biggest complaint (con) would be the price. They keep increasing it ... knowing that switching accounting software is difficult.

QuickBooks offers great customer support. And, they offer plenty of tutorials. Just understand you might need to take some time to view these.

Pros

I love that QuickBook Online integrates with the software program we use for our small business. Because it's online, our accountant can easily get access to what he needs. And everyone has the reports they need to keep tabs on the health of our growing small business.

Cons

There is a learning curve to QuickBooks. There are many features to learn and master. So, you do need to spend a bit of time watching the tutorials if you are new to QuickBooks

I've lost so much money because QB Online won't calculate tax properly. QB online support just keeps "escalating" the issue, but never gets back to me or fixes anything. And they don't care at all about the fact that I'm losing money in my business every day, by not collecting the proper amount of sales tax.

Pros

There is absolutely nothing I like about this product or their customer service. They have done nothing but screw over myself and my company since April 2018.

Cons

It won't calculate the sales tax properly. It just calculates on whatever it wants to in whatever city it picks. Their customer services does nothing to help.

I would recommend this program to any and all business owners just starting out or just anyone who is struggling to get a handle on all of the many things needed to start & run a business properly (tracking miles for taxes, taxes & organizing all of your expenses & income, quarterly & yearly taxes etc.)

Pros

The things that I like the most about quickbooks online is that they have made everything very easy to navigate & find my way around. Also, the fact that the program remembers what ive chosen for transactions (expense, income &/or what exact category for taxes) & sorts my bank statements out for me, I love this feature.

Cons

I honestly cant think of anything that is negative/bad about quickbooks online. Everything from the customer service, to the look & set up of the dashboard, to the individual perks of all of the different options; it all comes together to make a completely well rounded & very impressive program.

The speed and reliability can be affected by internet connections and setup. It is not as powerful as the desktop version, with user accounts, which limits the application to small business.

It’s a great program - just be prepared for frequent surprise modifications as well as tech support frustrations, but in all - it’s a great tool for small businesses.

Tech support - the good ones are wonderful, but the English as a second language people are not. The chats take forever and sometimes they still don't understand the question.

Pros

Using QuickBooks Online provides me with a Peace of Mind. The reason is that all of your information is backed up by QuickBooks, so there is no need to do your own backups. nor do you need to worry about losing all of your accounting information. I recently made the switch from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online and I am so glad that I did. At first, I was worried that it was going to be a difficult learning curve, but that is not the case. I was able to quickly learn how easy it is to use QuickBooks Online. I am in charge of the accounting at my business and I actually have 8 QuickBook Companies that I have to manage. Having all 8 companies on QuickBooks Online has made doing the monthly accounting reporting so much easier. I love that you are able to sync your bank account and credit cards to your QuickBooks Online Account which allow for easier reporting. No more manual entries! Overall, I am very pleased with QuickBooks Online!

Cons

The only issue I have with QuickBooks Online is that lately I have to resync my bank accounts and credit cards with the company files. This has become a real issue because it seems like I have to do this all the time or the new transactions will not import into QuickBooks. Hopefully, QuickBooks Online will fix this soon.

One of the best things about QBO for us has been the price. But then its ability to keep our finances straight has also been a huge help, much more than our last software. It's got a bit of a learning curve but once you've got it, setting up vendors, products, accounts, donors, income, etc. is pretty easy. It also has a lot of options in the reporting that let's you keep track of things, and you can schedule automatic reports that go out whenever you'd like in the month/week. Also it integrates with other software pretty easily, so having people submit receipts through Expensify, or having people sign up for something and have the purchase be recorded into QBO is pretty great.

Cons

We use this as a non-profit and it's sort of setup for it. Like you can change customers to donors, but it kind of stops there. Thankfully, the support team is very helpful and helped us figure out a way to record donations in the system as donations. We're still working on how to make reports for each person's tax giving statement, but the reporting part of QBO is bound to have a way to do that. There's lots of options there.

Quickbooks Online has helped me quickly review my income and expenses and has kept me in line with my projected budget. Since the system automatically syncs with my banking and credit card accounts, I don't have to maually enter any receipts or forget to enter receipts, which my Accountant likes!

Pros

It is so easy to use and very forgiving. If you mess up, you can easily fix the problem with little effort. If you have any questions, the HELP menu has a vast knowledge base.

Cons

I don't like that the Budget function is in a higher payment tier than the basic package. Budgeting is not terribly difficult to manage and it only adds a few more reports. I don't see why all packages can't have a budget module.

I was in charge of keeping up with the books for a small family owned company and they had been using Quickbooks when I came in so I learned the software and took over. It was honestly a lot easier than I had thought it was going to be and really made keeping up with everything so much more convenient and faster

I loved working with Quickbooks - it was the easiest software for all my accounting needs and it really cut down on the time it took to complete certain tasks.

QuickBooks online has its weaknesses and bugs. However, after my research I think it's the best option out there for now.

Pros

Quickbooks is easy to "plug in" and go... You can use their templates and basic accounts and set up your own accounting system in no time. I had no bookkeeping or accounting experience before using QuickBooks Online, and I was proficient after about 6 months of part-time use.

Having an accountant log-in is so helpful in today's world so many people are working from home/ traveling/ etc. It is indispensable for my organization to have an online accounting platform that I, my organization's volunteer treasurer, and our hired accountant can all access from our home computers.

As a non-profit organization that only pays a tiny amount of sales tax, that portion of the software is very functional and is one fewer thing I have to deal with.


I do not use payroll through this system, so I cannot comment on the functionality of that portion.

Cons

The bugs in the software (accounts that won't delete, messing up check numbers, etc) are the most annoying part of using QuickBooks Online for me. If you are a small team, you can just work around them and you eventually learn what they are, but it is repeatedly annoying. Their customer service is weak, but there are lots of affordable training courses that can fill in those gaps as you use the program.

I sometimes wish that Quickbooks Online were MORE customizable (i.e. allow you to delete certain generic accounts), and I sometimes wish it were LESS customizable (journal entries can be numbered ANYTHING which confuses me). Overall, I think it allows me to do most of what I need to do in bookkeeping for my non-profit.

From downloads to organization, this has been very useful with setting our business. I couldn't imagine having to hire an accountant.

Pros

The online features avoid the hassles of non accessibility. Plus one subscription allows access to more than one admin and also the CPA.

Cons

Just like anything else, accounting software requires an accounting background, but at least it helped me navigate it.

Pros

Quickbooks is a fast developing software that I have the opportunity to use every day. The Features that really stand out is the ability to do payroll on your own, time tracking, and billing.

Cons

The reporting in payroll is not that great. They can add more customizations to make this report more user friendly.

Pros

It's easy to navigate and pretty self explanatory. No error that can't be fixed.

Cons

I'm not sure if it's my internet connection or the software, but occasionally after software updates the software just crashes. It will happen about twice a day for about a week.

We needed a fast solution as our company scaled rapidly. We had to get paychecks out and start really doing account on the books. Quickbooks allowed us to get setup and running very quickly. Now we have 100+ people on the payroll being handled automatically by Quickbooks.

Pros

Easy to use
Affordable
Robust featureset
Lots of integrations with third party software products
Run an entire company's accounting out of this tool

Cons

A little bulky at first, but eventually once you work through the specifics it's pretty straightforward.
