When small businesses look to select an accounting system the first one most consider is QuickBooks. This is because QuickBooks has been around since 1983 and has evolved over the years to meet the requirements of almost every industry. Because of its history and popularity QuickBooks is the most used accounting system in the world. While most accounting systems only offer subscription based plans, QuickBooks is one of a few to still deliver their programs as a standalone program through CDs that can be loaded on a computer or accessed online through a cloud subscription, allowing customers to choose what they feel is best.
QuickBooks sets the standard for the modern small business accounting system and has been a leader in delivering automated features and third party bolt on programs to extend the functionality of the core QuickBooks account system. As a result, todays QuickBooks program, along with commonly available third party add-ons can handle almost any small to midsize business requirement.
Over the years, Intuit developed a program for QuickBooks experts called the Intuit Proadvisor Program to help deliver an added level of service to the QuickBooks user community. Through the ProAdvisor network business owners can find local, qualified, experienced and certified professionals to help implement, maintain and trouble shoot their QuickBooks accounting systems. Zagotti & Burdette CPA, LLC is proud to be a QuickBooks Intuit ProAdvisor since 2010. As a result, we understand QuickBooks and the benefits business owners can achieve through its proper use.

QuickBook’s online accounting system is called QuickBooks Online or QBO. With QuickBooks Online, assistance is only a click away as the system offers a secured portal for your accountant to view reports and see transaction in real time. This allows business owners and accountants to work closely together based on real-time information.
For QuickBooks computer based software users, assistance is still easily accessible through a secure file portal integrated directly into QuickBooks allowing the user to easley transfer their QuickBooks file through a secure portal to their accountant. From there the accountant can make any needed changes and then send the file back to the business owner who then can continue using the system as though nothing ever happened.
For the online version of QuickBooks, updates and data backups happen in the background automatically, so your software will never be out of date and your data is always backed up and secure. For the CD software version of QuickBooks, updates are available for download and installation on a regular basis for up to two years after purchase.
QuickBooks Online has a mobile app so business owners can manage their businesses anywhere from a smart phone or tablet, (Android or iOS). This mean that you can send invoices, add receipts, record expenses and run reports from anywhere with an internet connection.
