Why cloud accounting is the best choice
With a cloud accounting system, all your business data is stored securely online. You never have to worry about making backups, and the data is accessible from anywhere you have an Internet connection. As well as PC and Mac, you can access QuickBooks Online from dedicated apps on your smartphone or your tablet — no more being tied to a single machine! Work on your financials when it suits you.
You also never have to worry about updating your software with QuickBooks Online — that happens automatically in the background. When the rules change, the software changes too to reflect the latest requirements.
Why QuickBooks Online is the #1 choice for Australian Business
- QuickBooks Online is fully customised for Australian users. It can produce your BAS and handle GST calculations, and automatically updates as new tax rules and regulations come into play. Your accountant can also easily access your books when needed.
- It’s easy to import data from your existing accounting system. Imports from QuickBooks Desktop, Xero and MYOB are all supported — and there’s no charge to import up to two years of existing data.
- Need help? As well as loads of online documentation, you can always call our free phone support line during business hours.
- Security is a major priority. 256-bit SSL encryption ensures your precious business data is safe.
