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.

AUSSIE WET BLASTING

Hi everybody I think XERO has saved my life , I can now read and understand my accounts I have got my debtors down to a good level, have money in the bank ( not a lot hard times ) also I have been able to deal with bad paying customers quickly and on top of that 2 of them have gone broke but I got my money long be for as XERO puts the bad ones in my face as soon as I turn it on. Do have 1 complaint can they - you at XERO use every day words as we are not Accountant's we do not use the terms Xero and the number people use and I do find I make mistakes as I don't sit on Xero or speak like an accountant all day long im just a small operator and do many things all day plain language would be great example money out money in tell me all I need to know .
