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

Thanks!  I was hoping to replace QB on my Macbook with QB installed on my new iPad but this looks like a good alternative.

There is an iOS app for QuickBooks Online if you use that.

But still requires monthly fee for QBO. The poster wants to avoid that.

Does Quickbooks have an app for the iPad or not?  If not, what APP can recognize and import my quickbooks file for my iPad to use while I'm on the road?  

 

If Intuit/QB does not have an app for the iPad, what other alternatives are available?

As mentioned by other members above, you may run QuickBooks Desktop on iPad by remote desktop.

Should you need to have more than two mobile users working on the same file on iPad at the same time, consider another solution.
