QuickBooks Premier Retail contains features specific to retail operations

QuickBooks Premier Retail is designed to help retailers track sales efficiently. If you manage a retail business, then QuickBooks Premier Retail is the best version of QuickBooks accounting software for you. It's the easy way to record gift certificates, layaways, taxable and non-taxable sales, discounts, promotions, and more.

QuickBooks Premier Retail helps overcome common bookkeeping challenges in retail operations, such as short/over. This occurs when the cash in the till at the end of the day doesn't exactly match the recorded income. QuickBooks helps resolve this familiar bookkeeping hurdle by helping you track the short/over amounts. You will be amazed at how being short one day and over another eventually balances. You can easily create Short/Over accounts inside QuickBooks to track and reconcile these differences.

Retailers commonly sell and redeem gift certificates, and tracking these transactions appropriately is often challenging. Because the sale of a gift certificate isn't a real product and doesn't count as income - instead it is cash available to be redeemed for a product in the future - retailers need to manage their outstanding gift certificates properly. QuickBooks Premier Retail makes it easy to sell, redeem, and track gift certificates.

QuickBooks accounting software for retail makes reporting easier than ever. In a few clicks you can run profit and loss monthly comparison reports, track which sales orders are ready to ship, analyze sales trends, and see profitability reports. You can also track purchase order by vendor, returns by vendor, and track sales results.
