Larger companies, multi-currency. Clearbooks is in a competitive environment with Xero, SageOne, FreeAgent, Intuit etc., etc.

Intuit

QBO is excellent for small companies, startups, and any general business case where the accounting is not complex or the transaction volume is reasonably low. In a manufacturing environment or a larger company with a fuller schedule of fixed assets/many transactions on a daily basis, this software would be inadequate to support all of the needed accounting functions. QBO also does not support more complicated revenue recognition schedules for service contracts, requiring manual journal entries for any accruals -- I know several ERPs allow you to program a revenue recognition plan when entering an item nowadays.

      Alternatives Considered

      Clearbooks

      Clearbooks was chosen 5 years ago as our accountant recommended it. There is an element of inertia in moving accounts packages.

      FreshBooks served its purpose when our company was smaller, however, it did not offer the full range of benefits that QBO has offered us. The ability to assign user roles have unlimited user accounts, a dedicated helpline, online access to trainings, and the ability to create batch invoices has made QuickBooks Online the better choice for our business, hands down.

      Return on Investment

      Clearbooks

      • I am not sure that ROI is an appropriate measure for an accounts package. The cost is around £250/year, which is a tiny fraction of the cost of a bookkeeper/finance controller/finance director/CFO.

      Intuit

      • I know where are bank accounts stand all in one place.
      • I know who has paid me, who has yet to pay me, and the amount of invoices outstanding and how much I can expect to earn in a month.
      • Quickbooks keeps me organized in every aspect of the business.
