There are many benefits that come with QuickBooks Online compared to QuickBooks Desktop that are useful for many businesses and accountants. Overall, QuickBooks Online is easier to use, allows you to be more productive, and can do nearly everything else that QuickBooks Desktop allows you to do. Here are some of the reasons why QuickBooks Online (QBO) can be a better choice than QuickBooks Desktop:
More automation! QBO automatically downloads and categorizes bank and credit card transactions, as well as automatically scheduling and sending invoices. QBO also offers automatic data-encrypted backups.
You can access your books using a PC, Mac, smartphone or tablet with QBO. You can also send invoices, run payroll, reconcile accounts, and access customer info only using your smartphone or tablet! All you need is an internet connection. With your smartphone, you can also take a picture of a receipt and attach it to any transaction with the QuickBooks mobile app. QuickBooks Desktop only allows you to work from the computer it's installed on.
You can also easily share your books with your accountant. Your accountant can access your books remotely and can instantly help with whatever you need. QBO also allows access of up to 25 users, so if you need multiple users to access your books simultaneously, you can do that.
In short, QuickBooks Online lets you be more flexible with where you work from and where you can access your books. You can use QuickBooks Online anywhere that has an internet connection and on any device using the QuickBooks Online App.
