View Full Version : premier vs online edition
04-22-2004, 09:14 PM
I have a construction business currently with about 20 employees. I am using quickbooks premier 2002. I share my company file with an outside bookkeeping firm for payroll on a weekly basis, and with my accountant quarterly. I am deciding what is the best way to share the file. I currently send a backup on cd to my bookkeeper. I cannot use quickbooks until the file is returned. I can send the file to a remote storage site (like xdrive, or filesanywhere) making it a little easier to transfer the file. But I am wondering if anyone uses the online edition of quickbooks. What are the pros and cons of online edition? Would using it be an improvement to my situation?

Perhaps look at utilizing a hosting service for your Premier applications, rather than simply trying to figure out how to share the files.

Why can't you use your QuickBooks while your Backup is with your accountant? Does your accountant make changes to your entries? You might pose your question on the other forum where more answers get posted.

1) How many corrections does your accountant make & are they getting less or more. My point is that if they are say only a dozen then ask your accountant to list the adjustments and explain how you enter them.
2) Its a disaster waiting to happen if you don't keep the master Quickbooks data under your control on your PC.
3) I use Microsoft's XP Professional's Remote Desktop Connection to remotely access and change most of my client's Quickbooks. I think is the best solution as its very quick and very easy. However this needs a fast connection (say ADSL in the UK) and the right set up at both ends. Its well worth it.

You should be sending your accountant the Quickbooks accountant's copy, which allows you to continue working and the accountant can only make journal entry corrections which he will send you back in a tiny .aif file that will have only the journal entries which you then import into your company data. Go to File--Accountant's Review--Create accountants copy.
I would like to hear if anyone is using the Web version of QB & if they like it, I understand it has definite limitations.
