We have just taken over the accounting from someone who was using Quickbooks (US version) and we had no way of reading the files without going out and buying Quickbooks ourselves.
I had a trial version which lasted 30 days, but of course we didn’t perform reconciliations prior to the expiry finishing. Left with little choices, I realised Quickbooks has an online version which could import all our current Quickbooks data.
After using Quickbooks online for >12 hours I can say it’s a brilliant web application – it says it requires ActiveX, which of course requires Internet Explorer.. but ie4linux seems to allow the ActiveX component to install fine and everything I have tested has worked fine so far.
After such a good experience with Quickbooks Online edition, I am not considering moving our accounts to NetAccounts . Their web interface doesn’t look as user friendly as Quickbooks but their Free Accounts are pretty impressive.
If I had more time, I would be taking a serious look at implementing TinyERP but I just don’t have the time to spend nor do I feel confident enough in my accountancy skills that I can rest assure the system is doing what’s it’s supposed to do.
