Overall Satisfaction with QuickBooks Premier

I use this product to do the accounting for five different non-profit entities and one for profit entity.
  • Intuitive interface.
  • The many add-on products available (from Intuit and third parties) allows for customization and flexibility.
  • Price provides functionality at a good value.
  • I would like to see the ability to record more than one account receivable account and/or account payable account in the same transaction.
  • I would like to see more non-profit specific functionality, such as the ability to account for housing allowances within payroll.
  • Another piece of non-profit functionality I would like to see would be the ability to create and e-mail donor statements with my organization's comments and the necessary IRS disclosures.
  • This is the only product I have used.
Let me speak to non-profit users. I would ask what level workarounds could you live with in the following areas: annual donor statements, housing allowance pay, quid pro quo donations, non-cash donations and donated services. Another area to consider is the need to file share with your clients. I have not looked at QuickBooks Online in quite a while, but my recollection is that the non-profit functionality was even less robust in that platform.

Using QuickBooks Premier

1 - Accounting, bookkeeping, payroll, fixed assets, accounts payable, accounts receivable, donor development
1 - I am the owner and solely responsible for everything having to do with QuickBooks.
  • Well known platform
  • Accepted within the industry
  • Cost effective
  • More integration with third party payment systems and donor management systems.
The time and expense to migrate to a new system for all of my clients is not worth the change.
