    Hi Everyone,

    I am looking at moving my accounting software to the cloud and have narrowed my search to two companies: Quickbooks online and Xero. Does anyone have real world experience with both that can recommend either?

    I've been using a very old version of quickbooks in my office so I was leaning more towards Quickbooks Online, however I have heard Xero is very good as well. I also will need to be able to recommend to clients/business owners which cloud accounting service to recommend so plan on using it myself and also recommending it.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Sadly, I have never used a cloud account system. Although I am a big fan of cloud computing, I have never been fully comfortable having my accounting data on the cloud. This forces you to continue to pay to access your data.

    I'm biased on this, but QB desktop works just fine for me, and you can upgrade every couple of years without a fixed fee.

    Beyond that, QB has a long track record, and I have heard more about it that Xero, but sadly, I do not have personal experience.
