The Most Favorable Review

XeroFinance & Accounting
A verified reviewer10th of July 00:39

Simply brilliant

Have been using Xero for a year now, after switching from MYOB. So easy, I no longer need to outsource bookkeeping services - and I am emphatically not an accounting adept.

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.

The Most Critical Review

XeroFinance & Accounting
Cristina Garza, Chief Number Cruncher || Accountingprose10th of August 17:23

Xero- Beautiful accounting for both the business owner and accountant

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.
