I'm working at a hardware startup that's getting ready to get ready to do production runs. We're looking at inventory management software tools that integrate with Quickbooks. There seem to be a number of choices on the market and not a lot of differentiation (just based on demo videos). The tool ideally has the following […]

[US] Started an eCommerce business, and I’m looking to streamline Quickbooks.

I created an LLC a couple of months ago, and I've been avoiding QB like the plaque. I thought it would be fun, and thought I would like setting everything up, because I enjoy numbers, and working on little projects. However, I realized I am not enjoying this because in the end, I don't know […]

Don’t understand why QuickBooks handles voiding checks the way it does.

So I had a couple duplicate checks on the books that I needed to void from earlier this year (>90 days ago). The reason for me voiding them instead of deleting them is because that I'd prefer to have a record or audit trail of transactions that were effectively taken off the books. That being […]

To whom it may concern, My name […]

QuickBooks Data -> New SQL DB?

Hey all! Does anybody have experience moving their quickbooks data to another database? After Googling around I found a smattering of alleged solutions, but I thought I'd ask here because a few of the solutions seemed either sketchy or pricey.
