Why Quickbooks' ProAdvisor Certification Matters

Small business owners may be experts in their own niches, but accounting usually is not one of their fields of expertise. In today's increasingly complex tax and regulatory environment, neglecting a company's accounting concerns can mean big trouble in the future.

This is one of the main reasons that business owners outsource their accounting operations to qualified professionals. The best ones have completed many hours of continuing education classes to stay abreast of the constantly changing legal and regulatory environment. In addition, they usually have a solid understanding of Intuit Quickbooks software, the program used by approximately 85 percent of American accounting and bookkeeping firms.

Accounting firms such as Michael J. Yuda, CPA, LLC, in Honolulu, Hawaii, dedicate many personnel hours to achieving proficiency in this accounting suite. Some are granted the coveted Quickbooks ProAdvisor designation after extensive testing and certification by Intuit. Accountants who have achieved this ranking are true experts in the use of all the company's many products.

Quickbooks products make short work of payroll, account receivable, accounts payable and check writing transactions. Originally designed to run on PC systems, a later version makes it compatible with Google Android and Apple devices including Macs, iPads and iPhones. Quickbooks also interfaces seamlessly with apps such as PayPal, Shopify, Receipt Bank and Safety Net. The desktop version of Quickbooks has become something of a classic over the years, but about 75 percent of users now use the online version, a strategy that cuts down on the amount of hard drive space required to run the program.

These are the major features that Quickbooks offers, but the benefits to an accounting client are simple and direct. Accounts payable are paid on time, accounts receivable are entered on time and payroll is paid with little stress. Client company owners can focus on their core businesses, knowing that a well-qualified accounting firm is taking care of back-office needs.

Intuit's Quickbooks has proven its worth to businesses for more than 20 years. Accounting firms dedicated to excellence make Quickbooks proficiency a high priority. Those achieving the ProAdvisor rating are the best of the best.

Small- and mid-size companies in search of an accounting firm ensure the success of their businesses when they choose one that has earned this comprehensive certification from Quicken.



  1. I've been hearing a bit about quickbooks.
    It's good to know these options.

  2. I've been an enthusiastic QuickBooks user for the last three years and have used various versions of Quicken since 1988 (think, amber screen). So, for all those years I'll give Intuit a four star rating for only some minor occasional glitches.

  3. Use QuickBooks online saves me a lot of time, then it is also much more enjoyable. Another aspect of Quickbooks that I love is the timing of bank accounts. I'm not obliged to return all expenses.

  4. It works on all machines of my staff and it's really intuitive. The fact is that QuickBooks Online is really convenient. What I like most is the automatic raises.

  5. I was dropped QuickBooks to Excel. It is used everywhere, there is no limit. As soon as one has access to the internet, you have access to Quickbooks.

  6. I do not think it is necessary to have accounting knowledge to use QuickBooks. I was agreeably surprised by his utulité.

  7. I do have a small business and i would like help to set up my quickbooks 2014 software. I already put some information in it but i think it is time for me to consult an accountant.
