There is a great chance that your accountant is familiar with this and will be able to make great recommendations.
Cancelling you account is very difficult and they will try and screw you out of every last cent. I will never ever use this company or software again. SO ANGRY at the account closing process.

It used to be so great if you needed help you just called in and someone would know the answer and either have you fix it or they would get in your computer and do it. It was a fantastic service.
I highly recommend QB, especially if you have some accounting knowledge it is super easy to use and very accurate and reliable.
