The Main Benefits of Using QuickBooks for Your Small Business

As a startup business, you will want to make sure that you are using the best tools available to help your company run smoothly.

There are a variety of accounting software programs on the market today which can help you keep track of expenses and income, but none are more popular than QuickBooks.

This article will look at what QuickBooks does, and the key benefits that it provides to startups and small businesses.

What is QuickBooks?

QuickBooks is a business accounting software created by Intuit.

It is the most popular cloud accounting software as it is easy to use and has multiple features and integrations meaning you can see what is going on in real-time. No more trawling through statements trying to reconcile expenses and receipts.

QuickBooks offers all features that you would expect from popular accounting packages, within a simple and intuitive interface. This makes it perfect for beginners but powerful enough to satisfy advanced users too.

As such, thousands of small businesses in the UK have adopted QuickBooks as their chosen solution.

Benefit 1: QuickBooks is affordable

QuickBooks is affordable for most businesses, even if you are just starting out

Due to our relationship with QuickBooks, d&k accounting can obtain licenses from just £3 per month, with add-ons for payroll if needed (this is per paid employee, so make sure you are aware of the total cost).

There is no tying you into a contract, you can cancel at any time, and you will be able to export out what you need before your last billing cycle is up.

It has everything you need for an affordable price. You can change plans easily, so as your business grows, your QuickBooks plan can too.

Benefit 2: Easy to use

When it comes to accounting software, QuickBooks is one of the easiest to use.

The simple and intuitive user interface makes it perfect for small businesses, but it has all the advanced features you need! It also looks sleek and has a dashboard that gives you a quick overview of everything going on, so that you can easily keep up to speed.

This makes QuickBooks an excellent choice for small businesses that need an easy-to-use accounting solution that can grow with them. Of course, if you would rather outsource this to us, we are more than happy to do that for you.

Benefit 3: Wide range of features

QuickBooks is a widely popular business accounting software for good reason – it offers a wide range of features that are perfect for small businesses

Some of these features include:

-The ability to track expenses and income

  • GoCardless – get this set up for easier card payments from your customers.
  • Dext – file receipts online as soon as you get them and keep your office paper-free with Dext’s integration.
