Tried quick books online 3 years ago and changed after one year to Xero and get on quite well with it. It’s a bit more money then quick books but easier to get on with. Get it through our accountants. We are about to change accountants but will stick with Xero.

I’ve used xero at home and in work; qualified in sage and used QuickBooks in work. I hate quick books with a passion but would say sage and xero are pretty equal in ease of use. Both take a bit of getting used to but they have very good online support

Is there across the board census on certain brands or big boys (and girls) big way prefer one or small operators rather another possibly???

I think most accountants will work with either, I know ours does. He was very keen to share their Excel spreadsheets when I started out though, which would have been foc.

However, if they are selling you the licence then I suspect it would come down t9 who gives them the biggest commission, as usual.😡

wife does our books on a spread sheet , then use 123 sheets soft ware to send info to HMRC costs about £45 a year for the soft ware
I'll be using taxcalc next return. It's bridging software that links your spreadsheet to HMRC, £17.50/year for 1 business.
I use Excel spreadsheets with some checking formulas and drop down menus, does my adding up and VAT sums etc. I've used QuickBooks in the past for other things but don't see any need to complicate matters, our accountant is happy with spreadsheets.
The cheap versions of QuickBooks and Xero only allow a few invoice entries also which is useless for a normal business.
