What is the difference between quickbooks self employed and quickbooks on line


What is the difference between quickbooks self employed and quickbooks on line

It's good to see you here in the Community, brownal.


QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE)is an accounting package that covers the basic features a solopreneur may need as it relates to:


  • Managing both personal and business accounting tasks.
  • Estimating and paying your taxes (both with your state and the IRS).

If you need to file a Schedule C document with Form 1040 during tax season, this is your accounting solution. It caters to business owners with simple business structures. This means no employees and/or contractors, and very few customers that need to be invoiced.


On the other hand, the other popular version of QuickBooks for small businesses is QuickBooks Online. This is an accounting software package that caters to small businesses and offers more advanced features than QBSE. It can track sales tax, keep track of inventory, etc.


Also, QuickBooks Online is designed for small businesses that file taxes as:

  • Partnerships
  • S-Corps
  • C-Corps
