QuickBooks Won’t Squeeze Out Accountants and Bookkeepers

Founder Emil Abedian shares his thoughts with Accounting Today on QuickBooks’ new bookkeeping services here.

While this new offering from QuickBooks is being touted as a bookkeeping service, in actuality what they are going to offer is more like customer support in the form of helping small business owners set up QuickBooks and answer questions about how to do their own bookkeeping. As Rich Preece, U.S. country leader of Intuit Quickbooks noted in a recent webinar, QuickBooks is changing their DIY model to a do-it-with-me (DIWM) model instead. Simply put, the DIWM model is not a solution to small business owners’ problems.

See why it is as important as ever for small businesses to have an accountant or bookkeeper to accurately handle their books, while freeing them up to make their business more profitable!
