Cost Differences of QBO Advanced vs. QuickBooks Enterprise

Are you finding that the cost of QuickBooks Enterprise is starting to pinch your budget and cash flow?

In this article, I’d like to provide you with a head-to-head cost comparison of QuickBooks Online (QBO) Advanced vs. QuickBooks Enterprise and some important things you need to know.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE SUBSCRIPTION

Years ago, users of QuickBooks Enterprise enjoyed the “buy it once, use it for many years” approach.

That all changed in the fall of 2015 when Intuit moved Enterprise to a subscription only model. It’s a 12 month subscription, with the choice to make one annual payment (which is less expensive) or twelve monthly payments.

In other words, “no pay, no play” – if you don’t renew your subscription, Enterprise simply stops working and you have no access to your critical financial information.

QBO has been subscription-based ever since it hit the market, so now the two platforms are equal in that regard.
