Quickbooks Online

Quickbooks is an online accounting program that provides an efficient method of bookkeeping. I am able to offer my clients wholesale pricing on QuickBooks Online. QuickBooks Online integrates with Receipt Bank. Every receipt is transferred to Quickbooks and automatically allocated to the proper income or expense account. You can choose to have your bank records integrate with QuickBooks which will reduce bookkeeping time. At any time you can review your company books and have access to current information. This aides in making sound financial decisions throughout your fiscal year. QuickBooks Online can also be used to perform payroll for a small monthly fee.
