Hello. I am a small business owner, type is a sole proprietorship. I am currently using qbse but I want to know if I should be using other type of quickbook module..

Hi there, @swhkor.

 

QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE) is specifically designed for self-employed and freelancers that need to pay estimated taxes and file Schedule C.

 

QuickBooks Online (QBO) and QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) on the other hand are best suited for businesses that need to do payroll and a fully functioning General Ledger or Chart of Accounts.

 

For more details on how QBSE works, you can check out this article: QBSE Overview.

 

All programs are actually impressive, but only one will serve you best. A summary of differences helps to clarify version you need the most:

 

  • QBSE only provides P&L statements, while QBO and QBDT facilitate more advanced reporting.
  • Features essential to small businesses, such as inventory tracking and managing bills, are offered in both QBO and QBDT.
  • You can only pay 1099 contractors via QBO and QBDT.
  • Only QBSE is designed to help manage personal and business transactions in a single platform.

 

To more know info about their differences, you can check out this link: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/accountants/compchart/

 

I'm always here to help if you have any other concerns or questions. Just tag my name in the comment section and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

If you have to open a new QBO account, make sure to click the Buy button to get the discounted price for up to 6 months. If you purchase from the trial account, you have to pay the regular rate.
