Do i need quicken or quickbooks

Hello there, @userstevenboyd622.


As the owner of a business, deciding which small business accounting software to use for your business can be overwhelming. Allow me to share some ideas on this, so that you can find the tool that suits you. 


The two QuickBooks and Quicken have unique features sets designed for different uses. 


Quicken is a software that focuses on managing personal finances. The software follows a single item accounting capability with its processes and can meet personal accounting needs, such as tracking and recording financial transactions. 


However, I'd suggest visiting their website for more details on how Quicken works.


On the other hand, QuickBooks Online is an online or web-based software program that allows you to use your account anywhere you have access to the Internet. Also, QuickBooks is designed specifically for business bookkeeping and accounting. With QuickBooks Online, therefore, the characteristics of each floor are unique to the types of tasks that business owners have to perform.


For more details on the plans and prices of services offered by QuickBooks Online, please visit the following links:



By sharing the difference between QuickBooks and Quicken, it still depends on you which options have been specifically designed to accommodate small business owners.

It depends on your need. Quicken is not part of Intuit family anymore. You may purchase a one time license of QBD 2021 Pro for 1 user worth $399 or Premier for 1 user worth $499 thru a partner.
