As an accountant i use a number of different book keeping packages, and in the case of Quickbooks have been using it since version 5. As far as the 2010 version goes, adding back in multicurrency was a welcome change, and overall performance wise it's a bit quicker than the 2008 version as well. VAT has been changed somewhat again, with the main difference being that you can now file online through the program, although beyond that there arent that many changes.

As far as various versions and windows 7 goes, you can actually run anything from V.2005 onwards on windows 7 (either 32 bit or 64 bit) - although 2005 and 2006 do need to be patched before you start using it, although once this has been done i've found anything 05 and onwards very stable.

For someone looking at their first piece of book keeping software, it is still by far the most user friendly, simple, and flexible software out there, and while you could keep your figures on an excel spreadsheet, the main benefit with quickbooks is the flexible reporting, which allows a business owner to see exactly how he is doing at any given time. The other benefit, is that figures tend to be much better controlled through a proper book keeping package, which should save you in accounting fees as well (and given average chargeout rates, it might save you the cost in the first year).

The only proviso i would say however is that for new users not familiar with book keeping software, some help might be needed in getting started, as it can be a little daunting for someone looking at this for the first time.

Context: I am a one-person consulting company, so fairly easy accounts - no parts bought in, payroll etc. I have just upgraded from QB Pro 2006 to QB Pro 2010.
The software comes with a warning that it may take a half-day to upgrade because of the way the new version handles VAT and you may need to recreate form templates. That estimate was pretty accurate for me. Having the new version go through your whole VAT transaction history spotting discrepancies was daunting, but turned out fine as there were minimal errors. The screens taking you through the process were slightly confusing. I imagine the whole experience would be a lot more troublesome if QB didn't like the way you'd handled your VAT previously.
(In a throwback to the Intuit's notorious offhandedness to its customers, the programme states that it needs to take us through this process as users have not used the software properly in the past, leading to inaccurate returns. Not the software's problem of course......). QB 2010 VAT report screens are now geared to online filing direct from QB and take a bit of understanding if you were used to filing through completing the forms on the HMRC website.
When it's up and running, the new version is either reassuringly familiar or depressingly familiar ..... Not much has changed on the screen. It is still very old school and clunky compared eg with Microsoft or Adobe products. Recreating my single invoice template took me the best part of two hours because of the need to move text boxes around the page, align them, change fonts etc etc. Would have taken ten minutes in Word.
You definitely need to ensure that you retain your old version of QB until you are entirely happy with the upgrade, as QB 2010 files cannot be read by QB 2006.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Quickbooks 9 July 2010
I have been using Quickbooks for 15 Years and this is the best version yet. It is easy to use, Multicurrency is back, it looks better than ever, in fact I have no complaints.

I am a bookkeeper with several clients, over the years I have recommended Quickbooks to most of my clients as it is much more user friendly, especially for people less familiar with accounting packages. Recently I have needed to build customised reports, which I have found very easy. I need the multicurrency feature for a couple of my clients and I have always found Quickbooks multicurrency flexible and clear.

I found upgrading from QB2006 to 2010 a very quick process, taking about 15 minutes, although I was disappointed that it did not copy the invoice templates across. The look of the interface is clear and the supplier/customer/employee centres make getting a snapshot easier.

I always recommend Quickbooks to my clients and having tried, and had to use, most of the other packages over the years, I now feel Quickbooks is the only software which makes this work, which at times can be tedious almost fun.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware Problems!!!! 21 Oct. 2010
By Steve
I bought this product as an upgrade for 2006 as I understood that 2010 was compatible with Windows 7. It isn't fully! Beware, Quickbooks 2010 will not work with Windows Live Mail, the replacement email programme for Outlook Express. So unless you have Outlook as a seperate programme you will not be able to email reports or invoices using QB 2010.
ALSO. VAT is problamatic and support poor if you are upgrading from a previous version. We encounyered serious problems in assigning previous transactions and the only advise we were given after an hour on the phone was to do a journal entry which would have increased our profits and tax liability incorrectly. Eventually we were after much insistence put thropugh to a higher level of support but were left exhausted and frustrated.

Not as good as 2010. Wasted space on page layouts etc. Always having to scroll up or down to view receipts & invoices I could go on but won't hopefully 2014 is better laid out.
