We are a small 300 member non profit. Would desktop be a better choice for us?
I prefer the mobile access and links/sync/interface to other online apps (paypal etc) however it seems that for the non profit guidance and specialty accounting only the desktop version differentiates. Your thoughts?
Like you, I’m a big fan of QuickBooks Online because of the mobility and user interface. However, I have had a nonprofit client to switch from the Desktop version to the Online version of QuickBooks and they were not happy. This primary issue was that the reports in QBO were not as nice as the reports in the Nonprofit version of QuickBooks Desktop. Ultimately, they ended up switching back to QuickBooks Desktop.
In a nutshell, I recommend using the Nonprofit version of QuickBooks Desktop because it includes specific accounts used by non-profit organizations and custom reports that most non-profits use.
Best wishes for a prosperous 2018,
