Both products are exceptional and offer true double-entry accounting principles and have both accrual and cash basis accounting.

QuickBooks Online allows greater flexibility for creating custom invoices and cloud-based automations that the Desktop version does not. Additionally, the QuickBooks Online version allows for the use apps for better efficiency and receipt of payments. Desktop has more robust reporting, but that is difficult to customize. QuickBooks Online offers up to 80 depending upon which plan you choose. Both offer the standard reports expected from any accounting software – balance sheet, profit and loss, cash flow statement, etcetera. QuickBooks Online now offers a feature called QuickBooks Live where you can pay for professional support from certified QuickBooks Online accountants and CPAs. Neither QuickBooks Online nor QuickBooks Desktop Pro offer built-in payroll. However, you can purchase an add-on QuickBooks Online Payroll subscription. If you are using the Desktop Pro version, you can upgrade to the Desktop Enterprise version, that has QuickBooks Enhanced Payroll built-in.

No. I can add your business to my Online Accountant QuickBooks account and discount your monthly usage fee.
