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.

You will regret wave! Save yourself now

I have had Wave for about 4 years. I like them fine until this year when I added a business credit card account as a linked account on a new company I set up.

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..
