Quickbooks is the #1 Small Business Financial Software.
Since I’ve been practicing as a CPA for over 30 years now, I can tell you with a lot of experience that you get an enormous amount of capability combined with amazing ease of use. I also spend some time working with the mother-of-all-complexity software (SAP) and can find amazing similarities between the two. (Price is not similar btw.) If you begin with a version of Quickbooks, you can (if you choose) upgrade it to achieve additional functionality, and, most importantly to the small business owner – you are not locked in to either maintenance contracts or locked in with a particular consultant to maintain/improve it.

*In accordance with Texas State Society of CPAs ethics rules, I have to disclose if my recommendations will result in a commission or fee to me if you purchase according to my recommendation. So – to be perfectly clear – if you purchase via one of these links, I will receive a commission. Your price will not increase, the commission will come from Intuit’s margin.
