Hey people. Which version of QB do you like better and why, the desktop version or the online version?

Desktop all the way. From an accounting side, Quickbooks Online is less user friendly and also far more likely to let your clients persist in bad accounting behavior that will result in a costly cleanup at the end of the year. And on the other end of the equation, I've met several business owners/users who have made the switch from Desktop to Online over the past four years, but not a single one who didn't regret it afterward.

The desktop version of QB is much more robust. I've used both in practice prefer the desktop. Sadly, QB is trying to phase out the desktop version.

Try Freshbooks. Robust as QB desktop is, it becomes too bulky. As I understand Freshbooks, you only pay for the parts you need.

Since a client turned me onto Freshbooks, I started recommending it. I continue to hear people having problems with QB desktop or on line even worse.

I told a client about the different software and the feedback I get from other clients as well as the reports I get from the different software. He did not listen and decided to do a 30 day trial run of each side by side. Within the first week, he sent me an email telling me others were correct. He abandoned QB and uses Freshbooks.

Hi,

I had never heard of Freshbooks until I read this message. Is Freshbooks cloud based? Do they have Desktop version available also?

The Desktop version is all the way better than the online version.
It is more reliable and robust than its online counterpart.
