QuickBooks is widely-used accounting software for small businesses, and it’s also popular with solo and small law firms.

Who QuickBooks is For

Additional Details About QuickBooks

A plan for just about everyone. QuickBooks provides a wide range of accounting features that work for many small business sizes. In order to do this, Intuit offers multiple pricing plans. Not all plans include the above features.
