Proven track record
QuickBooks Intuit has been in business since the 1980s. They had a great program and wanted to offer it to small and medium-sized business owners. Since then, there aren’t many people who haven’t heard the name QuickBooks. With country-specific versions around the globe and 2.55 million subscribers in 2017, it’s safe to say they know what they are doing. And, with QuickBooks online, everyone can have access to its many features.
Use QuickBooks on the go
The benefit of using the QuickBooks app is that it’s easy to keep track of your books on the go. Every time you buy something for your business, you can easily upload your receipt, saving tons of time at tax time. Some of the fantastic features include:
- Create, view, and email estimates, invoices, and sales receipts
- Accessing customer information on the go
- Run critical reports to see how your business is doing
- Receive payments and download bank transactions
- Add your accountant/bookkeeper, so they have easy access to your information

QuickBooks has very reasonable pricing for start-ups and self-employed individuals. They have all the features you need to keep track of your companies’ financials, and you can try it free for 30 days. Upgrading is easy if you decide you need more functionality down the road. Sometimes your accountant or bookkeeper, insert wave here, can also offer special pricing for your business. So be sure to check with them first before signing up directly with QuickBooks.
QuickBooks is the gold standard, but it can sometimes be hard for business owners to navigate, OR they don’t understand what is happening behind the scenes. That’s why Rochon and Associates offer QuickBooks training for your business.
