QuickBooks Online vs. QuickBooks Desktop

Almost everyone is familiar with Intuit QuickBooks, as it is one of the leading accounting software, with over 7 million users. They offer both online and desktop software that helps business owners with everything from managing payroll, operations, tracking sales, and numerous other functions.

With so many unique abilities, it is hard to know which version is right for your business. Whether you are looking at QuickBooks Online (QBO) or QuickBooks Desktop (desktop) there are many features that they both share:

  • Creating professional invoices
  • Automatically schedule and send invoices
  • One-click sales and tax reports
  • Track sales and expenses
  • Mileage tracking
  • Manage accounts payable
  • Connecting over 650 cloud-based apps

The primary difference and the biggest deciding factor are how information is accessed. QBO is cloud-based, and easily accessible from wherever you are, as long as you have internet. Especially now, with so many companies transitioning to a work from home environment or even a hybrid environment, this can be a game changer for your company. QBO also offers access for up to 25 users and backup services.

Desktop isn’t without its benefits, by downloading the software directly to your laptop or PC, you have the ability to work whether or not you have internet. The desktop version also allows you to manage multiple companies at once, which is not the case for QBO, as it requires a separate subscription for each company.
