Those of you fortunate enough to be attending QuickBooks Connect 2014 (or feverishly monitoring it via social media!) have already learned the great news. Intuit has unleashed their brand new QuickBooks Online Accountant service, and boy does it have accountants talking. This incredibly robust program promises to save accountants time and effort with enhancements like easy access to all your books from anywhere, at any time, as well as allowing better collaboration and transparency. So what do YOU need to know about the new QuickBooks Online Accountant? Read on to discover more about just a handful of the fantastic new features that are coming your way!
Never Miss a Beat with a New Customizable Dashboard
Not everybody knows this, but accountants make great jugglers. No, really! No matter how many clients they have, an accountant must always keep both eyes out for every little detail, hiccup, and red flag that comes their way. Fortunately, the QuickBooks Online Accountant dashboard will make sure accountants have constant visual access and control over alerts, to-dos, and recent activities for each and every one of their clients–all in one place! Need to take a closer look at the books? Easy: the dashboard also provides one-click access to each client’s books and payroll.
Easy and Enhanced Tax-Mapping
Good news, tax specialists! QuickBooks Online accounts will soon be easily mappable to your tax accounts. After making tax-only adjustments within QuickBooks Online, accountants can push those changes directly into Intuit Tax Online without unnecessarily impacting the books. So look forward to seamless, impeccable record keeping and tax return generation!
Firm, But Flexible, Access Control
Want to limit which members of your firm can view or change which parts of your clients’ books? The new employee access controls available through QuickBooks Online Accountant will allow you to set roles and permissions for individual employees at multiple levels. You’ll be able to choose between Full, Restricted, or even customizing your own permission settings.
FREE QuickBooks Online Plus, Wholesale Pricing, Easy ProAdvisor Account Access, and More
The truth is, there are a whole host of new features and bonuses set to be released with QuickBooks Online Accountant. These include, but are not limited to, a FREE subscription to QuickBooks Online Plus, which will be offered complete with Intuit Payroll. This means that all of your business’s paychecks and guaranteed-accurate payroll tax calculations can be seamlessly integrated into your accounting software at no additional charge. Otherwise, accountants can save 50% for the life of their client’s QuickBooks Online subscription through Intuit’s wholesale pricing. And for you ProAdvisors out there, all of the product training, certifications, and benefits you know and love through your existing ProAdvisor program will now be accessible directly in QuickBooks Online Accountant. No new tabs or apps or anything! Just simple, direct access to all your necessary resources, right there within your accounting system.
