I've been utilizing this software for a while now. The best accounting software comes from facts. It offers all the features required for routine accounting work. But it does need some guidance and practice. If an accountant starts with the right skills for using the software, he won't need any other alternatives.

Pros

It is widely utilized on a large scale. Customers are at ease utilizing it. It gives flawless data reporting and synchronizes with other platforms and software. This makes all accounting tasks simple. The wonderful thing is that it advances daily.

Cons

The cost is the only negative aspect. Undoubtedly, it is a worthwhile investment, but less privileged users would benefit much from flexible planning.

QuickBooks is widely used by many different types of businesses therefore, it is supported and understood by most typical CPAs and tax attorneys. Bankers are also familiar with it, as well. It does a great job of tracking income and expenses, and tax related items. While lacking in farm specific functions, it does the others so well that you can trust you’ll have good information come tax time

Pros

QuickBooks is the industry standard for small and medium size businesses. It is known by most CPAs and bookkeepers, so it is easy to get answers for any questions you may have.

Cons

QuickBooks has the most standard set of features needed for most small businesses, however it is not tailored for some of the intricacies of farming.

Reasons for Choosing QuickBooks Desktop Pro

GnuCash seems to have all the functionality that an accounting package would need, and is free and open source, but not widely used and accepted by accountants, CPAs, and bankers. Since we rely on a CPA for our depreciation and tax preparation, we made the switch to QuickBooks, which is widely known by CPAs. After doing it for a few years, and getting comfortable doing bookkeeping, I feel like I could make GnuCash work if I tried it again.

Reasons for Switching to QuickBooks Desktop Pro

I chose the desktop version because I was not interested in the online features or sharing functionality, since it is just my self doing most of the entries. I also was not interested in having a monthly subscription. I preferred to buy the software one time.

Terrible Experience

Reviewed on 1/11/2022

I hate Quickbooks, all of it.

I hate Quickbooks, all of it.

Pros

I don't like Quickbooks at all. There are no pros for me to share.

Cons

For several years I used the online version and after the decline in support I tried another accounting software. My friend, who keeps her books for their family business, told me to try the desktop version of Quickbooks. I reluctantly tried. It took days and several phone calls to even get the download to work. I finally got caught up with my books and went to print the P&L and Balance sheet and my information was corrupted. I spent about an hour with support, and she could not find a file that was correct with all the work I had finished. I have proof I finished reconciling my business checking account because I printed the monthly reconciliation report to attach to my statements and none of my work was there. I asked for a Supervisor and one never came on the phone and the phone call finally just disconnected. When I called again, I was told a Supervisor would contact me and no one ever contacted me. I want a refund and now have to try to find the correct person who speaks English to help me. I have no faith that will happen. I am happily now with Patriot Software, and Amercian based business and I am very happy.

it was the right choice for me to jump from quicken to quickbooks, i haven't chosen anything else for my business

Pros

it is a easy as keeping a checkbook, i know that for most people, checkbooks are something archaic but the software for me, nothing else for my work is as effective as Quickbooks.

Cons

One could argue that the subscription plans are kinda of expensive for what they do, i rarely call for support, but i understand that money is needed to pay the developers to update the software, but i also understand that some people might think that it is a cons.
