QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions

Is QuickBooks Enterprise UK still available to purchase?

Due to a number of factors we have been advised that this is no longer the case. However the International version is still available. We are suggesting that people currently using Enterprise consider some of the other options which are available to them.

What will happen to existing users of QuickBooks Enterprise UK?

As of this moment Intuit UK have made no formal announcement regarding their plans for QBE UK. We have been told they will continue to supply support for the next year. It is likely that this will mean QuickBooks Enterprise will not be improved in the future unless there are any changes in VAT or Payroll - these would then be updated to comply with HMRC rules.

After this year it is likely that payroll support will also stop. If you are using QuickBooks Enterprise UK you should start considering alternatives for future use e.g. Acumatica Entrepreneur.

What are the differences between QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions and QuickBooks Premier?

The Enterprise version of QuickBooks provides a lot more features and benefits. QuickBooks Enterprise allows you to have 1 million client, supplier and item records as apposed to QuickBooks Premier which only allows 14,500. It is also more cost effective over 3 years with more users.

What is the difference between the UK and the US (or International) version of QuickBooks Enterprise?

You may have noticed that on the website we have marked some features as ‘US only’ or ‘International only’. This is because we provide two version of QuickBooks Enterprise; the UK version from Intuit UK and the US version from Intuit. The main difference between the two is that the US version is set up for sales tax.

 

When we first started selling QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions the only version available was from the US. We thought the product was fantastic, so we created a few customisations and reports that enable us to use QuickBooks Enterprise in the UK and report on VAT. We also recommend using an external payroll system with the US version due to sales tax.

 

Other differences include a few features. The US version includes the document centre, which allows you to attach documents to any transaction or account. We are hoping to see this feature introduced towards the end of 2013.
