Overall Satisfaction with QuickBooks Premier

We are only using QuickBooks Premier for the payroll module. I use Blackbaud Financial Edge for all other accounting tasks.
  • Tracking employees
  • Tracking payroll items
  • Tracking associated payroll taxes
  • Printing W-2's
  • Interface with Georgia Department of Revenue for payroll forms is not the best it could be. There are some forms that just don't interface well.
  • I have had issues sending the required year end payroll forms to Georgia in the past but it was better this year.
  • It has been a cheaper solution for my small payroll runs than my other accounting system.
Quickbooks is cheaper for payroll.
I think for small businesses it probably does a pretty good job.
