Is Quickbooks POPI compliant?

The Community has your back, @shannonq-ot-gmai.


I have all of the resources necessary to handle QuickBooks issues from right here. 


When you say POPI compliant, could you please provide additional information about it? Any further details would be greatly appreciated. This way, we can provide the best resolution on this matter.


For your future reference, you can always visit our QuickBooks South Africa Community. This page contains information about handling your account, transactions, and other topics. 


Please know you can continue to reach me here with your additional questions. I'll be standing by for your response.

Hi Michelle


Thank you for your response.


I'm referring specifically to the client data that I enter to set up accounts. Whilst I know that the data is secure, will Quickbooks share this data with any third parties without my knowledge? I am in the healthcare sector and thus client confidentiality is of utmost importance.


I have looked throught the Intuit terms and conditions but, to be honest, it seems a little vague (or over my head!) and that there do appear to be instances where they will use this sensitive data.


Any further clarification with regard to this will be most helpful.

Hello there, @shannonq-ot-gmai.


I understand how important it is to make sure the confidentiality of our client's information. As stated in the Intuit Terms of Service, we abide by government law about the security and confidentiality of your data. Additionally, sensitive data will be treated confidentially.


For your future reference, I encourage you to visit our QuickBooks Help articles page to look for resources or articles you can bookmark or save for future use. 


Feel free to reach back out to me if I can be of more help with the security of your data. I'll make sure to get back to you as soon as I can.

I am not sure there is any cloud based accounting app met that requirement, including QBO (US version).


You should consider using QB Desktop US version instead. Deploy a private cloud if required.
