As a small business owner and accountant, I have tried many accounting softwares. I was a Quickbooks Pro Advisor for five years and relied heavily on an expensive and inconsistent server to share data with clients.

QuickBooks Online: Great Accounting Operating System for SMB Industry Apps

QuickBooks Online has made incredible strides in the past several versions--2 of the most important advantages of choosing QBO over other cloud-based accounting options is the growing availability of apps available for QuickBooks Online and how easy it is to send to your accountant--the accountant tools (that your consultant or ProAdvisor has access to are top of the line) . If you are a new start-up, small business, or desktop user of QuickBooks Pro or Premier, QBO is likely the best option that you have for accounting needs Don't forget to demo and test the apps..
