    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    QuickBooks Pro (PC) is a reasonable accounting package for a small business. Most of the problems would be insignificant if you are using QuickBooks Pro (PC) right from the start of your company, rather than transferring existing accounts to it.

    It will also upgrade an existing Quickbooks installations from some earlier versions with no apparent issues.

    I have a small IT contracting business and my partner is a Certified Accountant, so together we should have all the necessary skills to understand and install a PC based accounting package.

    Good points:

    * There are good standard templates for different types of companies, when you are installing Quickbooks.

    * Workflow order is well set up and easy to follow.

    * Users are encouraged and enabled to customise the layout and setup-of buttons.

    * Invoices can be emailed direct to the customer if desired, including through Thunderbird and Microsoft Outlook.

    * Printed layout of invoices is fine on plain paper... There is no need to buy special stationery, and it is easy to add your company logo - A definite plus over Sage.

    * Online vat filing from Quickbooks works well.

    * Quickbooks can be used on multiple PCs referencing the same data.

    * If you upgrade from an older copy of Quickbooks it does not require you to make the registration telephone call again.

    * There are direct time recording functions that feed into the invoicing system. Great for IT contractors like me!

    Bad points:

    * There is no upgrade option from competitive products such as Sage, so existing balances and transactions since the prior year end need to be manually entered, as do supplier and customer details.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Intuit Payroll Services - a great bolt-on 3 Dec 2011
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    I really like using Intuit's Payroll, it allows us to do everything in-house. We don't have to outsource it and rely on another company to pay staff on time. We can run payroll as frequently as we want to. I find it reassuring that it's HMRC Payroll Standard accredited.

    Everything is FAST and EASY. You generate and "eFile" payroll files directly to HMRC -- it works like a dream. (This includes doing P45 and P46 forms + P25 and P14 forms). You calculate net to gross pay in one click. You have access to always up-to-date tax tables.

    I elect to send all payslips by email (there is also an option to print them out, but I like to save paper when possible).

    The best thing about QuickBooks Payroll is the flat monthly charge, and of course 12 months are included with purchase. This is a pretty sweet deal. Even after the first year, when you will have to pay a monthly charge (if you want to use the service), it is cheaper than outsourcing.

    Please also lookout for my review of QuickBooks Pro 2012, which I think deserves 4 stars (out of 5) in its own right. (It is this product, minus the Payroll Services bolt-on)

    4.0 out of 5 stars Business acounting for an SME 6 Aug 2012
    Verified Purchase
    Quick Books 2012 is the next generation of business accounting software from INTUIT designed for small business owners. The 'PRO version' supports payroll (for UK employees) and complies with the current HMRC requirements. However, as HMRC are planning to introduce 'real time reporting' during 2013 we expect a major upgrade next year which may force users to upgrade or opt for a 'support contract' at the end of this tax year.
    Quick books is designed for 'ordinary mortals' with no formal accountancy training and the on-line help and 'user forums' provide adequate help for most things, although some basic knowledge of 'accounting principle' will prove very useful.

    By Mrs. T. Newton TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    QuickBooks Pro 2012 is by far one of the best accounting software packages for small businesses I have come across. Plus this version has a one year payroll subscription, saving money you may normally spend on outsourcing to another company. In payroll it's easy to input the information and generate payslips. Plus you can email from the programme directly to HMRC with the help of up to date tax tables - making it extremely easy and quick to use.

    Install was very easy. Just plug in the license and product number, click install (which took me about 15 minutes) and away you go. A handy word document pops up with a list of useful links to QuickBook manuals and guides to help you get started. Included useful things like "Creating a Company File" and "Setting up QuickBook's for multi-user access". QuickBooks Pro also asks to use your Internet connection, which is okay as it automatically updates using this.

    Then there's three options --

    To build your confidence using this new programme, (if you are unfamiliar to it) there is the ability to practice on your own by adding and changing data in a sample company file. I found this most useful, as I didn't want to plug in all my details only to later discover I didn't like it and had wasted my time, which would have been awful had that happen. Fortunately this prevents all that misery!

    This is so easy with their EasyStep Interview for those starting from scratch.

    For those already up and running. Where you can also restore from a previous backup. Very handy indeed.
