If the words "VAT", "credit control" and "invoicing" bring you out in a cold sweat then the chances are you're running your own business. The chances are that the bookkeeping side is the bit you fear, hate or worst of all ignore. Step forward QuickBooks 2003 Regular to keep the books balanced.
QuickBooks has been putting accounting solutions on small business desktops for over a decade now. Each year a new version appears on retail shelves, in various incarnations, each aimed at a different size and complexity of business, together racking up a mighty five million sales worldwide, and counting. Of this year's contenders, QuickBooks 2003 Regular is the entry-level version. So, considering that £135 will probably buy you a couple of hours with a flesh-and-blood accountant, should you take the plunge and go it alone? Just how much accounting power does the package put on your desktop?
Setting up is a cinch. The software "interviews" you, gleaning information about your business--number of employees, pricing structure, customer details and the rest--and making sure nothing is missed. You will now be able to track your cash, bank and credit card accounts; manage accounts receivable and payable; generate and manage invoices; even set up merchant services for online credit card payments from customers.
If you are moving from an earlier QuickBooks you'll find some compelling new features. There is a more sophisticated breakdown of income and expenses; the package is now fully integrated with Microsoft Word and Excel; and there is a facility for backing up and archiving data. And for the bigger picture, the package now lets you create a proper budget--the next stage of gaining proper financial control of your operation.
So, is it worth it? Well it's swift to set up; even the least numerate boss will find it easy to use; and it will give you unimagined control over your costs and your cashflow. In other words it will give you control over your business and its future success. It could be time to sack that accountant. --John Rennie

I am sure for the accountancy literate this is a fantastic tool, but for the very small business, who is looking for a daily aid and not a replacement of their accountant I feel this is complete over-kill
