Limitations of Quickbooks Online - Singapore

For Singapore users who are considering Quickbooks online, through explorations and answers from Support, I have gathered a list of limitations. Some of these limitations may be Global.


1. Can't add Paynow QR Code to Invoices

At the moment, you cannot add Paynow QR Codes to Invoices. The only alternative is to add, for example, the UEN etc.


2. Can't Connect UOB Bank


This is a glaring problem. Especially since it has been there for some time now. I have read forum posts from 2022 and can confirm this problem still exists.

To make matters worse, "UOB Bank" is shown on "Bank Transactions" Page:


"Connect your bank directly to QuickBooks Online
Fast, secure, accurate. Connect your UOB, Citi, Maybank, OCBC, DBS and Aspire bank accounts to QuickBooks."
3. Delivery Orders
Several Singapore companies use Delivery Orders to facilitate exports, local delivery. A customisable Delivery Order feature is not available. Instead, Delivery Note is available which may work for you.
4. Lack of a Signature field - Issuer and Receiver 
You can't add signature fields to invoices or delivery notes.
- Invoices: you have to use the "Message to Customer" or "Add Footer Text" portion of Invoice Customisation to add a semblance of Issuer and Receiver Signature fields.
- This is completely absent for Delivery Note as Delivery Note is not customisable.
- It is possible to receive Electronic Signatures via the QBO app.
- Adding signature fields to Invoices is possible with third party apps (payment required).
I'm seriously considering switchting to Xero.
