Is there a version of Quickbooks that can be installed on an iPad (iOS 10.2.1) or do I have to use the online version which requires a monthly fee?

There is no desktop version of quickbooks that will install on an ipad of any generation, only mac and pc.

However, if you have a PC or a Mac  you can install appropriate version on it and access it from your ipad using one of various remote desktop applications. I use one called Splashtop Streamer which even works on a first generation ipad and is free to use if you are on your LAN.  I believe there is a small fee to access your desktop entirely remotely. There are other prograns of this type and all you have to do is have you host computer up and running. Which complete remote over internet you would have benefit of mobile access to your company file without paying the monthly fee for QBO and yo uwould also benefit fdrom the more robust reporting aspects of QB Desktop
