QuickBooks is the ideal business accounting software for small to medium business owners. Whether you are a $50k or $4million dollar business, the investment in QuickBooks is a few hundred dollars. You can effortlessly generate the reports you need to know where your business stands and it provides many of these reports in a visual graph. QuickBooks is specifically designed to be flexible and adaptable to a wide range of businesses and has recently added customizable accounting packages for Contractors, Retailers, Health Care Professionals and Non-Profit organizations.
Data is easily shared between QuickBooks and many popular programs, such as Microsoft Excel, Word and Outlook. This accessibility allows you to get paid faster by e-mailing an invoice or statement and can accept credit cards. The integration with QuickBooks Merchant Account Service means you don’t have to enter the transactions twice and no additional software or hardware is required.
Online Banking is another popular feature with QuickBooks. Setup your current bank account in QuickBooks and you are able to pay your bills with stamps or paper checks. Additionally, you can also download your monthly bank statement for ease of reconciliation.
