QuickBooks Desktop is the perfect accounting software to keep me organised in the office. A quick look and I am able to see what invoices are outstanding, what bills need to be paid and what taxes are due. Very user friendly.

What makes QuickBooks the world’s favourite accounting software?

Every year QuickBooks updates their desktop accounting software for one important reason. We listen to what our loyal users like about the software, what they dislike about it, as well as what new applications they think could make their QuickBooks accounting experience easier for both accountants and non-accountants.

The QuickBooks Desktop 2018 theme is all about getting more done, more efficiently and faster than ever before. What’s more, when you combine these new features with the ones that are already available in QuickBooks, your business has an incredly powerful tool to manage its finances.

When you purchase a QuickBooks product, it includes a QuickPerks subscription which provides you with the product updates, email and telephonic support as well as upgrades to any new versions of QuickBooks that may be available when you renew your subscription going forward.

QuickBooks Desktop 2018 is seriously easy accounting software. Managing your business will be so easy that before you realize it, another successful year will have passed by!
