hi @ Kasteelfarmz ,

Your case is similar to our client in Indonesia and most of Asia region. If you like to use QuickBooks Online, Global version is your best option. But if you like to use QuickBooks Desktop, you have to know which accounting principle of your company will use. Currently there are only 3 versions available (US, UK, and Canadian). Please keep in mind, you could deploy QuickBooks Desktop to be access by internet as well with additional service.

Glad to have you here in the Community. I appreciate your interest in using QuickBooks Online (QBO).


Yes. QuickBooks Online also works globally. Since you're in Jamaica, I recommend using QuickBooks Online Global. This version supports most of the financial institutions all over the world and follows the tax system of the country you register.
