I am needing to get remote access for QuickBooks pro and I cannot figure out how to get access to this feature.

Currently, I am obtaining my clients computer to maintain her books and it's a hassle, espcially this time of the year. When I was using her QB on her laptop, a popup came up within QB and said something about QuickBooks Remote Access for 7.95 a month but I cannot find anymore information on this and I cannot figure out how to get it setup. This is a small business so spending $50 a month for remote access from another company is out of the question.

That was discontinued about 5 years ago. I am guessing your client has an Really Old QB program on that computer.

There's no built in feature I know of. Instead use remote access software to log into remote computers where QB is installed.  Teamviewer works well, and there are others.

If you use Google Chrome as a browser and sync/personalize it with a gmail address you can use 'Chrome Remote Desktop' for free!  It's not as robust as TeamViewer or LogMeIn but I use it in concert with a cloud storage service (DropBox) and  find it to work perfectly.  QBs really should have a remote access protocol built into the accountant's version but they want to sell everyone a subscription to their online products.

I've heard that Splashtop works well, also.

Has anyone tried Chrome Remote Desktop? I read you can do it with that if both computers are running the extension? and it's free. Also read that if both computers (remote and computer to access) are running Windows 7 or above you can do a remote access.

Has anyone tried doing this with Chrome Remote Desktop (free, both computers need to be running the extension) ? Or I read also if both computers are running Windows 7 or higher you can do a remote access also for free. I was thinking of having a dedicated computer with just the quickbooks on it that both myself and my bookkeeper can access at anytime to work on it. https://www.howtogeek.com/257655/remote-desktop-roundup-teamviewer-vs.-splashtop-vs.-windows-rdp/

Hi there, @kgall.

 

Allow me to join the thread and help share additional information about getting a remote access for QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT).

 

Yes, you have the option to choose what third-party application you're going to use.

 

You may also visit our App Center to check for compatible application.

 

As always, free feel to add a post/comment below if you have any other QuickBooks questions. Have a great day ahead!

You can use Chrome Remote Access.  You just need the extension installed on both computers.  The main reason I'm commenting is that you don't need to leave the remote computer logged in to access it.  You can leave it at the login screen and login like you always do...  just a security issue.

Yes. We use chrome remote access on all our computers. It's so much easier to log in and update proceed directly from anywhere without having to export, download and import.

I just talked with a QB rep (9/19/2019).  He said they still offer remote access hosting for the Desktop versions of QB.  It's even more expensive than QB Online-Advanced, but available.

I am looking around for a way for my accountant to access my quickbooks to do monthly reconciliation and found the quickbooks remote access tool. It shows its $3.95/month but for whatever reason it will not open the site the link directs you to. It is hosted by WebEx. The link just times out. Does anyone know if this service is still offered? It seems to be the most affordable "anytime anyplace" access system for quickbooks.
