New QuickBooks Online

Im new to QuickBooks Online and wow the visuals are seriously cool. From the home page you can directly see graphs like the p&l , your expenses, your income and you can see who owes you money and how much is still outstanding.

Cash vs Accrual14th of March 11:07

If Only

I've been using Wave for 9 months and have been satisfied with the ease of use, but Wave does not off Cash basis accounting. Wave is supposedly designed for small businesses, most small businesses in the US use Cash Basis.

So Far, So Good

I've been impressed with the UI and feel so far. What I also like is the fact that they publish to their blog on a regular basis and quick access to other apps using the blue dot..
