Cons: There are a lot of features that I don't know how to use. It is time consuming to learn how to use the entire functionality of it.

Pros: The program allows to quickly navigate from program to program helping to find mistakes in work. It is always something I input incorrectly and I am able to quickly find and fix.

Cons: It is not that easy to back out transactions like I thought it would. It usually takes me some time to reverse the transaction than to complete it.

Pros: I like that it has made accounting at our small office much easier, and is affordable for us for the most part.

Cons: The "cloud" isn't as easy to navigate at times as we would like. It seems to be a bit glitchy at times and customer support isn't always readily available. But for the most part, it is a wonderful product.

It's a great product when it works, but a horrible one when there are problems.

Pros: Feature-rich, in-depth reporting features, wide variety of form templates, granular user permission options, printer-friendly formats.

Cons: We run QuickBooks in an environment with over 20 networked clients, running off a single server. Users have the option to apply updates (despite network settings disallowing this); when one user applies an update, the server, all other client computers, and all Company Files must then apply the update - in our environment, this can take an entire business day to complete and Company Files often become corrupted if a user accesses them with an older version of QuickBooks, after an update has been applied. This is a significant drawback in my opinion and I have reported it to the QuickBooks development team in the past but it has not yet changed to my knowledge.

Overall: In-depth reporting, one interface for all accounting needs, granular user permission options, and user interface that is easy to navigate for Windows users.

Pros: It's easy to correct a mistake if one is made; when entering payments you can make notes; you can enter all payments to be made and then opt to print them all when you're done.

Cons: When reconciling monthly, it would be nice to somehow have the deposits and the withdrawals areas a little more spaced out, the entries are placed tight together. Comparing to the bank statements during this process gets to be a little stretched out.

Overall: I am not the only one in the office that uses it; so whoever works on this program it's easy to see what has been done

Pros: It is capable of handling all of the accounting requirements for my business.

Cons: My bookkeeper used this software. Her insistence on using this is a big part of why she's not my bookkeeper anymore.

It is hugely bloated, both the application software, and the licencing process. Updates would literally take over half an hour on a modern computer with an i7 processor. Updates were required frequently, and I can honestly say, I would spend more time installing packages than I would be using the software for my small (0.5M) business.

The base fees for use are exorbitant. I got trapped into purchasing the software for a few hundred dollars, then having to pay more in fees monthly basis. After hours on the phone with support I never could get a straight story on why I had to effectively pay double for this already overpriced product.

File sizes were ridiculous. A couple of years of Overall: Nothing I couldn't get from ANY other piece of accounting software. This is NOT appropriate for small business.

Pros: I actually use another software landlord tracks to keep track of tenants, but I use quickbooks to get everything all tightened up to send to my account at the end of the year. I really love everything about it.

Cons: If it was catered a little more specifically to actual businesses it would be perfect. I own many apartment complexes so there is a lot more leg work getting that info into quickbooks

Overall: an easy way to get information to my account every year, and a back up of every transaction

Despite paying annual fees to stay up to date, the company charges extra for assistance other than on line forums or their "help button" where you can search for answers. Their system won't mesh with the Canadian Governments system for ROE's and there are problems with T4's at times as well.

Pros: We used QuickBooks for our business and found that it was very easy to use and allows us to do some extra things that became useful. If you are looking for something to track Income and Expenses that allows you to group alike items together allowing you to sort certain ways .... this is a great buy.

Cons: One thing that I would like to see improved is being able to save more versions that go into the category drop down box for easy access.

Overall: This software helped me organize monthly expenses for the business.

Pros: The fact that it was possible to customize it to fit it to our company, it makes our lives so much easier now we have it.
we are a property management company and have a pretty complex administration but with Quick Books it's very manageable.

Cons: To set up the software to fit our company was a bit of a complicated process, that part of it was not very user friendly and needs specific know-how.

Overall: control of status of accounts, clear reports, saving accounting costs on a yearly basis, knowing what is going on financially in your business on a daily basis (and seeing what was happening in the past)

I use this system in our small private physical therapy practice.

Pros: Its easy to use as Accounting Software goes
It offers a wide range of functions / reports
Has some nice, quick visual graphs that give you a picture of where things are at
Easy to integrate with Banking
Online and accessible from Anywhere
It's very reasonably priced

Cons: Not as flexible as it should be
Service is good but not excellent - Have had issues with the API and third party Software since the PST change in Saskatchewan in April, 2017. While one rep offered us a discount - the takeaway is that they won't make a change or investigate API because they say its up to the third party developers to complain/report. We've now had broken software for months because those third parties also cannot get support / changes they need made. Experienced the circle of blame here which is the reason for my initial comment.

Not enough options for Template Designs
Hard to find certain items to change ( ie default messages in online invoices)
Help/Search often returns old or not helpful articles
Dashboard offers so customization

Pros: I liked that I had an accurate itemized invoicing system to keep track of customer information. I enjoyed being able to pull up charts and easily see how much money was made in months.

Cons: If I needed to do a refund or correct an invoice, or credit an account, sometimes the entire account would be thrown off balance. I am sure this is user error, but I could never figure out what I did wrong. I am not an accountant, I am a mental health counselor. I feel that you need to have a financial guru on your side to do the more complicated tasks. Although the refund/reversal situation seemed like it should have been an arbitrary task...to me anyway.

Some of the feature when printing are not available like using the automatic staple in our Kyocera printer. When using with other software like the Microsoft Office, it works fine.

Pros: The best part about QuickBooks is the ease-of-use for non-accounting people. It can be up and running in ~an hour and links directly to your bank account for easy financial tracking & management. Additionally, around tax season, it's easy to add an accountant and most professionals are very used to working in QuickBooks.

Cons: The biggest issue I've run into is when I don't know which accounts to attribute expenses to or when I want to manipulate the financial reports. Unfortunately, I have not had great experience with their customer service team being able to help on this front.

Pros: Easy to figure out how to use. Easy for tracking and printing checks. My accountant can interface with this software easily so it makes tax time easier.

Cons: Constant need to upgrade, they make this product "self destruct" after a few years it seems. Could be easier to run trial balances, it takes us some effort to track trust accounting through this software.

Overall: Easy bookkeeping solution.

Quick, efficient and very user friendly. Makes my job so much easier.

Pros: Easily connects to my bank account, then I can categorize each purchase and set up rules for automatic categorization. I set up Quarterly Federal Income Tax payments, which are a lot easier than I thought. Profit/Loss Statements are easily accessible. I export directly to Turbo Tax to do my taxes as well. It's the perfect platform for someone who knows nothing about accounting.

Overall: Easy accounting with no accounting experience. Doesn't take much time at all every month.

Pros: I love the fact that it is web based. I can work in several areas at once by having several tabs up and switching from one to the other. Also, other people can be working in it at the same time.

Pros: I like the ability to track invoices per individual customer. You can also create reports and filter those reports to view specific information and it's very detailed how you can do so.

Cons: On my machine, it takes a little bit of time to load everything, and switching windows is slow as well. I've used this on more powerful machines with no issue however.

Overall: I've been able to successfully manage all invoices and accounts using this software which enables more efficient production within the company.

Pros: Industry standard, easily integrated into many products, accountants use it, mobile apps and ability to auto categorize

Cons: Cannot downgrade they force you to create brand new subscription and import everything; I don't feel safe and trust them with my data for various brands because of it. Also costly, you can get zoho books included for free now in there $35/mo version that includes a lot more than accounting

Overall: Auto categorization but ended up switching and will lose the data

Pros: QB is perfect for any business. You can add and remove accounts or items you like, create sub-accounts and organize them the way you want. Intuit payroll software works great with QB. I like paying payroll taxes using QB and do direct deposits. Credit cards charges are uploading directly to the QB software saving you enormous amount of time . Reports are very easy to generate and export to Excel .

Cons: QB allows to delete previous transactions which is not always good, especially if you have a new inexperience employee that works with files.

Pros: It's nice that you can use it to create customized invoices, but I do not need that for my business.

Cons: I hated everything about this. I have used quicken for years and years for personal finances. I had no business/accounting background when I started my business, so trying to figure out this software was a nightmare. Accounts payable/receivable/invoicing did not seem like a good fit for my cash-based business. So, I got quicken for home and business so I could continue to use the same features I was used to and the accounting was simple. It can handle all the business functions I need, including tracking bills, saving receipts, account balances, and even vehicle mileage.

Pros: Quickbooks online allows access from anywhere as long as you have Internet access. It also allows for multiple users at the same time, so that someone can check your work from another location in real time.

Cons: I often find it difficult to find a specific transaction. When searching with "find" you are shown a list of transactions, but often cannot see the specific term you are looking for because you are just shown a list of transactions without the specifics.
Also, when you click on the gear to add a transaction, you are asked to provide a "description" of the transaction, but if you just add the transaction from the accounts page you are asked to provide a "memo."

Also, there are limited features, while for the most part they are really advanced and do the job well, there are a few places when it lags. Time tracking is only available with the plus plan and the functionality of the feature is pretty limited.

Pros: There is a wide variety of ways to use the software and it is pretty ubiquitous. The phone tech support has always been pretty good. They also donate copies for non profits to obtain at a reasonable price otherwise there would be no way we could afford it.

Cons: The search functions do not seem to work very effectively. There are times I need to find a particular transaction and it seems like the search should produce results but it doesn't

Pros: I use this because I can manage both of my businesses with the desktop version. Everything is fairly easy to find, once you're acclimated to it.

Cons: I would love to use the Online version of this software because I like how it will sync your accounts and make things more automatic, but I would have to set up and pay for two separate accounts for my two businesses.

Our nonprofit uses Quickbooks to record deposits, process payroll, and pay our bills.

Pros: Even though I'm not trained as an accountant, Quickbooks makes it easy for me to record donations and make payments. The reports are rich and useful, and allow me to provide different levels of information for board members, funders, staff, and auditors. The class tracking system also allows us to determine how grants are being spent and how much remains in each grant.

Cons: Because the file is so big, Quickbooks can take a while to load, and we have had to purchase more powerful computers to ensure that there is no lag time in running it. And the Home screen, while it has a lot of features, is not necessarily intuitive to me. Sometimes, it can be a challenge to locate the tools I need quickly.

Overall: We do so much of our work in Quickbooks. As a provider of emergency financial assistance, understanding our own financial position is key to serving our clients. We have used Quickbooks to classify income and expenditures in ways that help us budget carefully, so assistance is always available for vulnerable neighbors with a critical need. It's been easy to teach staff members who are social workers, not accountants, how to process payables and understand reports. But the CPA who serves as our board treasurer gets the level of information that she needs, as well.

I am able to easily track expenses and income.

Pros: It is fairly easy to use. Can navigate to different areas with ease. I do like that it can do payroll and file taxes electronically.

Cons: That you continually have to upgrade every few years to keep different parts and when you use it with Quickbooks Point of Sale software, you have to upgrade both modules, which can be very expensive. Also, their charges for taking credit cards are not comparable, they are higher than others that I have checked into.

Overall: It is easy to navigate. Easy to correct problems.

Simple and helpful online accounting tool which is very handy in day to day office workin and tasks.

Pros: It has even more features than I need and I like the speed by which I can write checks, and run reports.

Cons: I believe the price is high. In the past, customer support was bad, but the last few times I've needed support, there was a great improvement.

Overall: No more handwriting checks, envelopes, etc. I attended a class when I first started. I wish I could attend another one as I'm sure that even after all these years, there are things I could learn.

Pros: I use online version for my salon and it helps simplify my taxes for the Cpa at the end of the year. It syncs with the software I use which is even better. I rarely have to do anything except log in and move my purchases to the category they belong to.
It's easy to use somewhat but customer service is so good that they will help you regardless of how long it takes

Cons: If you aren't familiar with some of the terminology it can seem tricky to figure out which category some business purchases are to go in.
Wish the app was a little more functional for phones

Overall: More accurate taxes

Using Quickbooks is difficult but nothing compares to the hell of calling their customer service

Pros: It is a true accounting software. I used it because I needed a program to calculate my employee's taxes.

Cons: It was often difficult to see where my transactions went. Sometimes I would enter something and not know where it went. When reconciling accounts, if I had to undo a month, it would not update the total. But the worst thing in the world was calling customer service. Always a very long and unsatisfying experience. Extremely frustrating.

Pros: Intuit goes to great lengths to make the Accountant experience easy fir anyone to conquer. My only accounting training was 3yrs of Accounting I, II, and III in high school. Over the last 30+ years I have been the account for my wife's family business, trying other accounting software like Pacioli and Peachtree, but QuickBooks is the one that made my life easy to process daily deposits, accounts payable, and payroll. Simply put, it is the best software for any level of accountant from beginner to master.

Overall: Simple to use and complements my lack of accounting knowledfe
