Overall Satisfaction with QuickBooks Premier

I use the Accountants edition to work with QuickBooks files sent to me by my clients.
  • Mostly easy for non accountants to enter the raw data
  • Printing of reports can become confusing for non accountants.
  • I prefer a monthly closing. Frequently a client will enter something for a previous month, a closed month, or sometimes the date is just entered incorrectly and the item goes to that date and is difficult to find.
  • Necessary expense
I only use QB to process client data into Creative Solutions CWU
I prefer a software with monthly closings.
As an accountant I would not use QuickBooks if my clients did not.
