I am starting an business for serving my clients for book keeping their small businesses. I propose to serve around 5 clients initially in the first year. Which one do you advice whether Online version or Desk top version in terms of cost. Can i buy online version and can use the same for different clients(I do not think this is possible). I think I need to purchase all the accounts online separately for each client. Is it so? in that case Desktop version would be cheaper. Please advise.
Congratulations on starting your own bookkeeping service! To be honest, you really need to have access to both QuickBooks desktop software and QuickBooks Online since you never know what QuickBooks product a client might be using. The most economical way to get started is to sign up for a free QuickBooks Online Accountant which is 100% free for bookkeepers and accountants! Once you do that, you can purchase QBO accounts for your clients at a discounted price. In addition, you can also purchase QuickBooks desktop products at a discounted rate.
I’ve included a couple of articles below that I think will help you get started:

I check this forum daily so feel free to let me know if you have any additional questions, you know where to find me. 🙂
Best of luck,
