Intuit QuickBooks is proud to announce global free access to QuickBooks Online Accountant (QBOA), enabling accounting professionals in 170+ countries to move to the cloud faster, scale their practices and bring more value to their clients and the wider economy.
Australian advisors have had access to QuickBooks Online Accountant for many years now, and the fact that we’ve now launched globally – means that Australian advisors with team members based overseas, now have access to the same great tool.
Accounting professionals make a huge contribution to the economy at a local, regional and global level, working as trusted business partners to the small business community, which represents 90% of businesses and accounts for 70% of employment globally.
But their impact could be even bigger, as QuickBooks research suggests accountants are now busier than ever. Four out of 10 (43%) report they have more than 40 clients, and 86% are looking to technology to help them be more efficient and better meet client needs.
QBOA addresses this by enabling accountants to manage their practice workflow, client interactions and billing all in one place. Developed with a select group of accountants globally over the past 12 months, QBOA – Global Edition is a refined suite of benefits to help professional accountants move to the cloud faster and drive greater efficiency and scalability of their firms.
Access to real-time insights from anywhere in the world puts professional accountants at the heart of driving informed business decisions that could positively increase small business survival rates – currently, only up to 40% of Australian small businesses survive beyond the first five years.
Intuit serves more than 100 million customers worldwide and is one of the biggest software companies in the world, with Intuit QuickBooks now being the first provider in the market to deliver at this scale for the accounting profession.
Lars Leber, Vice President of Intuit QuickBooks Australia, said: “The scale of this rollout is unlike anything that has been done before. The global, free rollout of QBOA will arm accountants all across the globe with the most efficient financial management solutions, proving the difference for a business-ready community.”
