|Standard accounting software
QuickBooks for Mac fulfills basic accounting needs such as transaction entry, invoicing and account reconciliation.

Job costing functionality is limited and not recommended for contractors, for example. There is no mechanism for integrating time sheets and applying labor costs to jobs.
|Look and feel
The look and feel of the product fits within the Apple ecosystem, yet is intuitive for users of the Windows versions of QuickBooks.
Users don't recommend using the product for anything beyond the simplest payroll needs.
|Not as good as QuickBooks Pro or Premier (Windows versions)
Though it has improved in the past few years, QuickBooks for Mac is still behind the Windows versions in functionality. It also has a smaller ecosystem in terms of third-party plug-ins and experts or consultants.
QuickBooks for Mac offers small business and accounting users with a robust business management solution that echoes the interface of the Mac ecosystem. QuickBooks for Mac not only fulfills basic accounting needs, but users can also track sales, expenses and create customizable reports. Data seamlessly flows into QuickBooks for Mac by integrating bank feeds and credit card accounts. A key differentiator of QuickBooks for Mac is enhanced search capabilities, which allows users easily manage their transactions and invoices.
