RE: Quickbooks Versus Simply Accounting
As an accountant, I prefer Simply Accounting over Quickbooks. The learning curve is a bit steeper, but it can do more. The most important feature is the audit trail. For companies with employees, SimplyAccounting allows better control because any changes to entries is documented. With Quickbooks, any changes just happen in realtime like WHOOOF!!! If by accident, you type in the wrong date, you won't even know where it went! Of course, you can find out by digging deeper, but for some inexperienced, this can be annoying and time consuming. I'll be glad to hear what others have to say.

RE: Quickbooks Versus Simply Accounting
For a one person company where the owner operator also does the bookkeeping, Quickbooks can be very handy and easy to use. However, as soon as you have employees, I would recommend using Simply.

Quickbooks is very intuitive. It operates like a cheque register. I highly recommend that a user take a quick crash course on its capabilities. It can save a lot of trouble in the long run.

RE: Different versions of Quickbooks
You cannot make a straight comparison between Quickbooks and Simply Accounting because there are different products for different purposes, different businesses and different levels of users.

One advantage is that there are free trial versions available for download which lets you test drive the software. As an accountant, or accounting troubleshooter, it pays to test drive the different products.

RE: Quickbooks Versus Simply Accounting
I have a new client and after spending so much time explaining why I prefer Simply Accounting over Quickbooks because of its robustness, the client still chose to use Quickbooks. I have to admit, that the learning curve for the layperson is much easier.

RE: Quickbooks Versus Simply Accounting
I prefer quick books for my business. I recently started a Minneapolis electrician company and this is what works best. I researched for a long time and think this is what is best for my company.
