QuickBooks Online is one of the products of Intuit meant for Small Business owners and it is a Cloud Accounting Software. Without need of any software installation we can work with QuickBooks Online. It is also called as QBO.
As we already told you that the QuickBooks is a web based Accounting Software and we need only an Internet Browser like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer to operate this Cloud version of Accounting Software and your Computer System must have connected to the Internet.
Subscribers have to pay the Monthly subscription fee instead of upfront fee to access the Online Accounting Software through a secured login via a web browser. It is a distinct product from Desktop version of QuickBooks. In 2013, Intuit (Developer of the software) announced that the third party can design the customized patches for QBO to meet the additional requirements of the Subscribers by using the QuickBooks Online with an open platform design.
QuickBooks Online supported on Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer 10, Safari 6.1 and also accessible via Chrome on Android and Safari on iOS 7. As well the subscribers can access via an iPhone, a BlackBerry, and an Android web app.
Earlier, in the beginning stage of VAT introduction in the Business segment it was not supported by the QuickBooks Online but later on 2011 it addressed the specific VAT and European Tax System. There are also custom versions for Canadian, Indian, and Australian markets, as well as a global version that can’t be customized by the user.
