QuickBooks is the number one small business accounting software, and for a reason - it gives fast and easy tools to help you manage your business more effectively.
QuickBooks was created to be used internationally for most every industry known to mankind, so how do you know which QuickBooks version to use? There is a QuickBooks solution that meets your unique professional practice needs – QuickBooks Pro Desktop Version.
Practices only use, at maximum, 15% of QuickBooks' capability, so anything bigger or more robust is major overkill. The Premier Edition is for accountants and enhanced accounting functions. The Online version is a scaled back version of QuickBooks Pro and the costs plus sacrifice outweigh the access. There are other ways to access your QuickBooks remotely than QuickBooks Online.
How can you possibly create your QuickBooks for your practice, your industry?
There are basically two ways to create your QuickBooks - for tax accounting or financial analysis. Customizing for tax results makes it hard for financial analysis. However, customizing for financial analysis still allows the taxes to be done by the CPA.
QuickBooks, in a professional practice, is used as companion software to an existing practice management software. Practice management software tracks patient information, patient ledgers, insurance and payments - accounts receivable. QuickBooks tracks liabilities, vendor payments and payroll - accounts payable.
