By: Sattu101

So, you have decided that you’re ready to take the next step, and buy a full featured accounting software program. Many options are available to choose from, but I believe the best solutions to be Quicken Premier Home and Business by Intuit, Quick Books Pro also by Intuit, and Peachtree Accounting by Sage. In order to decide on the right package for you, you need define the type of business that you operate.

With the rise of self employment businesses with one or more owners but no paid employees a need has arisen to manage business and personal finances on one platform. Intuit has released Quicken 2005 Premier Home and Business to fill this need.

This software is perfect for the small business owner who receives income from investments, real estate, and or internet
marketing. Also, Quicken 2005 Premier Home and Business is well priced at only $89.95.

For more typical brick-and-mortar business owners, you will usually need a more robust solution like Quick Books Pro or
Peachtree Accounting for functions like payroll reporting and check producing. Each piece of software has its advantages,
but don't forget that Quick Books has been the standard in business accounting software for many years now. As for features and basic operations, both applications will provide you the same functionality and convenience for your business.

One additional factor to consider in your decision is that Peachtree Accounting is less expensive than Quick Books. Both
starter versions of Peachtree and Quick Books are priced at $99.95 each, but the full featured version of Peachtree is priced at only $199.95 while the full featured Quick Books Pro is priced at $299.95.

At the end of the day, the biggest advantage Quick Books offer over Peachtree is compatibility with other applications. For example, most commercial banks Bank of America, SunTrust, etc... provide you with files designed to work directly with

Quick Books, so that you can read, study, and decipher transaction details. Also, some banks will allow you to update account information in real time with Quick Books. Check with your bank to see what accounting software their online services support, and you should be able to make your decision.
