Hey all. Just a quick question for you. I have been contemplating adding bookkeeping to my services and have been watching Ben Robinson's free webinar series. For day 2 he recommended Xero over QuickBooks and I just wondered what other opionions were. I have used QuickBooks a little, FreshBooks a little(for myself), and was trained a long time ago with Simply Accounting(is that even around anywhere anymore? LOL) So if I do not have to spend time learning a new system, it might give my brain a break, Not sure about you but I already have a list of things to study and every day it seems like I find something else to bookmark and get back to. So what I was wondering was if you all could just share the pros, cons and what-not for each so I could have a better understanding before making a decision. Thanks! I appreciate it.
This seems to be the only bookkeeping forum here, and it seems to be all about QuickBooks. Doesn't anyone else out there use Sage 50 (Simply Accounting?) I've been using Simply Accounting (to give it its old name) for eight years. I'm currently taking a course on QuickBooks, and I must say I don't really care for it much! Maybe it's because Simply Accounting is more aimed towards the trained bookkeeper, while QuickBooks seems to aim toward being usable for businesspeople even if they aren't bookkeepers. Of course, part of the reason may be that VANetworking is primarily US-based, while Sage is a Canadian company. Any other Simply Accounting/Sage users out there? Jeri Woods, Dustwood Media
Hello Fellow VA's, I have an average of 12 team members on my multi-va team. I am having trouble finding the best way to calculate and run payroll. Especially as the hourly rate is different for different clients, and some of the projects are flat rate monthly. This makes it difficult to find a program that will allow me to enter different hourly rates, etc. for an individual. To date, I have been using a project management and time tracking integrated program, and entering the information into an Excel Spreadsheet that is already set up with the calculations. This seems to be a bit more tedious, and open to the potential for more errors. I am wondering what anyone else in the same or a similar situation has found helpful for payroll. I am open to any suggestions and/or questions! Thank you!
Re: http://www.sleeter.com/blog/2012/06/quickbooks-professional-bookkeeper-2012/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed:+QuickBooksAndBeyond+%28QuickBooks+and+Beyond%29#.T-XnDfUvuP9 I was reading this article at Sleeter. I must agree with them. I'm not sure I see the point. If you are going to use those functions with the "Bookkeeper" edition, you would want to spend the $100 bucks and get the full premier accountant edition. Especially for the report writer since reports are what bookkeepers do a lot of these days. Kind of an odd move by Intuit. Not really sure what the deal is there, but thought I'd share. Make sure you scroll down to the bottom to see the differences. Weird.
