I’m a CPA and I manage the books for over 500+ startups. While there have been some disruptors in the Accounting Software space (Xero, Wave, and Freshbooks) I still believe that QuickBooks is the best. For now. There are key features that are missing in some of the new competitors, BUT they’ve definitely put pressure on Intuit/QuickBooks to become more innovative.

If you’re a startup, go with QuickBooks Online.

  1. It’s easy to use

  2. It integrates with many other accounting apps (Bill.com, Zenpayroll, Abacus, Expensify, etc)

  3. It easily transitions to QuickBooks desktop should you become a mutli-million dollar company and need more robust accounting capabilities.
