QuickBooks Online - $4.99 per month

Between now and 31st December Intuit is offering its QuickBooks Plus Online accounting product for only $4.99 per month for the lifetime of the subscription.

QuickBooks Online is a fully featured cloud-based accounting product from Intuit. The 'Plus' edition includes inventory and payroll for up to 10 employees.

A subscription to the 'Plus' edition of QuickBooks is normally $35 per month. As a comparison, the equivalent product in Xero may cost up to $60 per month without inventory (although Xero is still a great product).

Plus, if you already have your data in another product, Intuit will convert your data file for free!

Intuit is working hard to establish itself in Australia and this pricing is part of its push to unseat the incumbent players. Business consumers are the big winners from this increased competition, but only for a limited time.

To take advantage of this pricing, you must establish a new subscription by 31st December 2014.

The only catch is that this offer is not available direct to users. It has to be taken up through an accountant.  All you need to do is contact us and let us know, and we'll set up a file for you.

Even if you're a little unsure at the moment, why not take out the subscription now and then cancel it later if you don't end up using it? For the price of a cup of coffee a month, you can park your subscription while you work out your transition strategy and test whether it's the right product for you. You can cancel your subscription at any time.

If you'd like to talk about it or take out a subscription, please contact our Managing Director John Manning on (08) 8291 7900 or email us.

We pride ourselves on our professional independence. We never endorse any product to the exclusion of others, but rather endeavour to work with whatever works best for our clients. That's why it's important to us that you know that we are not QuickBooks accredited advisers, we are not recommending this product and won't make any margin or be otherwise remunerated for your subscription.
