Intuit launches QuickBooks for accountants

ACCOUNTANTS HAVE been given specialised software by IT company Intuit.

The software provider has launched its popular QuickBooks software as an accountant edition.

QuickBooks Accountant Edition is Intuit’s bookkeeping, write-up and financial reporting software that has been adapted for accountants to support multiple QuickBooks users, so advisors can collaborate more efficiently with their clients.

“Intuit’s focus is to enable accounting professionals to be more productive and help them grow their practices,” said Alison Ball (pictured), head of accountant programmes at the company.

“While QuickBooks has always been popular with accountants and bookkeepers in the UK supporting small business clients, this is the first time we have offered an Accountant Edition.”

The software went on sale this week and Intuit is launching a roadshow this year, which will show users how to use the product.

Although the software costs £519 per single user, members of the QuickBooks ProAdvisors programme will receive a free copy.

Last year Intuit announced that its latest product, QuickBooks online, would allow accountants to see client information for free. Previously, clients had to pay for any users including their accountants.
