At Intuit we value spending time with our accountants and making sure they get the best out of QuickBooks Online. Throughout September and October we are hosting a number of events across the country to help you make get most out of the time you spend with your clients – QuickBooks Get Connected. You can find your nearest event here.


The QuickBooks Get Connected series launched earlier this summer with a fantastic event at Vinopolis, London. By gathering 50 accountants as well as some of our add-on partners we were able to gain insights into some of the key business challenges accountants face and provided tips to make the most out of using QuickBooks Online.

Hosting events such as this gives us the opportunity to listen to accountants and find out your true business needs and what your pain points are when growing a practice.

By hearing more about QuickBooks Online, accountants are able to use the platform to better effect to make the most of the time you spend with your clients.


Sharon Schofield of Myers Clark (Turnbull Associates) believes that working in the cloud has allowed her extra time to focus on her clients:

“I’m not waiting for month end reports to come to me which takes considerable pressure off financial reviews.”

By working in the cloud, Accountants have more spare time to build stronger relationships with their clients as business advisors, which is fast becoming the expectation of the small to medium size business owner. Gerhard Visagie of Exceed UK commented:

“The solutions and future development of QuickBooks Online are very beneficial to our clients and free up our staff to do more valuable client work, guiding them in their business – that’s where we want to play.”

We also heard from some of QuickBook’s ecosystem partners, who bring complimentary services to our product. PaySuite’s Stuart Hall and Receipt Bank’s Nelson da Silva spoke about how they have integrated into the QuickBooks system and gave an overview of their apps. These help clients manage their payroll and expenses and make sure they are logging into QuickBooks Online ready for you.


Marketing Director David Walsh summarises the key findings from the event and customer panel discussion in the following video.
