GoDaddy Bookkeeping

Perfect for US market but not transferable to UK market, needs some upgrades for this. Even when set up with a UK address it won't allow changes in tax year end, presuming that tax year starts Jan - Dec. Also shows dollars instead of pounds even though figures were correct with solution.

QuickBooks Online

Quickbooks Online is super well suited for small business owners who are on the go and need access to their bookkeeping across multiple devices. You can leave the desktop and carry your books in your pocket for billing, invoicing, expensing, payroll any time, anywhere. I know there are time tracking plugins as well as other integrations that allow for your staff to submit reports directly to the software which is a brilliant addition.

Pros

GoDaddy Bookkeeping

  • Invoicing and linking payments to them.
  • Creating estimates for my clients.
  • Making tax time easier with easy P and L statements and categorization of expenses.
Jake Smith | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online

  • The user interface is clean and things are easy to find. This saves us time from having to look for things we need. If we can't find something, the Help and Search features are easy to use.
  • There is a bar graph at the top of my Customers page that shows a breakdown of overdue invoices, open invoices, and those that have been paid in the last 30 days. This is nice because I can see all this information quickly when I need it.
  • We can customize invoices as much as we need to and it is very user-friendly. We can email individual invoices or in bulk to save time. We can send invoice reminders and statements in a flash as well. All of these things help us get paid on time.

Cons

GoDaddy Bookkeeping

  • More complex tax prep features
  • Better filters for tax purposes
  • More tools for tax returns
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online

  • Collaboration. I would like multiple members of our team to be able to collaborate better. I have difficulty sometimes tracking what was done by whom at a user level.
  • Making user permissions easier to manage. Setting security options between users. The features may be there but it is not as intuitive to set certain access permissions and differentiate between users as I would like.
  • Integration into Outlook calendars would be a nice add-on for payment reminders. These are setup and scheduled for payment automatically through the app, but a reminder on my personal calendar would be a nice add on. It may even be available but I am not aware of it.

It like the product 'right out of the box' and I trust Intuit will continually improve it over the years based on my experience with their desktop products. The large providers of Apps makes customizing the entire package relatively easy and seamless for a wide variety of business types.

Loses marks on the tax year only being Jan - Dec and inability to change that to a UK format and choose your year end date.

It's Easy enough to learn the basic for a new user; though if you are required to go more in depth in recording assets or liability accounts it could get somewhat confusing for the every day user who doesn't know double-entry accounting. It's great for a business that just wants profit and loss information available at their fingertips.

There are tab issues. When I tab the field doesn't highlight and I have to backspace or delete what is in the field. Happens on the memo field and sometimes other fields. Very time consuming.

We spent over $2000 to get set up on QuickBooks Time (TSheets), and it still isn't showing up correctly in our client profitability reports. And our accountant says he's unable to help any further because he's over his knowledge level at this point. The online support never seems to give us helpful results, so you need to call. Calling into QuickBooks on a time-tracking or payroll question though usually results in them telling us to call TSheets, and vice versa. This seems to come from TSheets being a separate company that has been purchased by QuickBooks, so we're now ping-ponging between the two. TSheets Customer Service is awful, so we always try QuickBooks help first and hope that QBks can solve the problem.

Alternatives Considered

GoDaddy Bookkeeping

I already use GoDaddy for a lot of my website clients so tried the bookkeeping out and really liked it! I tried a few others but nothing worth the price difference. I have tried a few other time trackers as I wish I could live track my time vs entering a little a time.
Jake Smith | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online

QuickBooks Online was much easier to use across a non-profit where we needed people in multiple locations working on different servers to access the financial data at once, it also allowed us to connect our bank accounts to the software which was a huge benefit of the program, these were main differentiators between the online product and the desktop version that we trialed. We have also used Wave in the past for accounting and still use it for it's invoicing features because of the nice invoices it creates for our organization at no cost. Microsoft Excel is what we used before Online version so QuickBooks is much more advanced than that.

Return on Investment

GoDaddy Bookkeeping

  • Low monthly cost compared to other accounting software
  • Easy to use and learn with
  • Gives me the basic numbers I need for book keeping and taxes for a small business
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online

  • QuickBooks Online ("QBO") has allowed us to increase our efficiency by at least 20% on clients where we handle their actual activity entry. The use of bank feeds has been the largest contributor to this because we can memorize transactions and what categorization needs to happen to them - virtually eliminating the need to key in information for those clients.
  • We are able to service more clients who are coming to us that want to use or already use a cloud based solution. Probably 2 of every 5 new clients already are using a cloud solution or want to use a cloud solution.
  • We are able to have access to the clients books immediately via the easy granting of a free "Accountant's Login." Clients love that they don't have to pay for this easy to use feature and that we can immediately start collaborating on new work without having to jump through hoops to gain access.
