We are running an old version of QuickBooks Pro 7 and ready for an upgrade with our computer. We are getting very confusing information from the sales team. We don't need payroll, cloud, or multiple users but do require a similar accounting package with GOOD inventory do to our legal requirements to be able to report on all stocks, where it was used etc. Thanks in advance

Hi Peter.  From my knowledge, your cheapest option will be the Desktop version of Reckon Accounts Premier 2015 Annual Licence at $520.  It is a single user licence and whilst it might include Payroll, this has advanced inventory features which it seems that you need.  John L G

As you have used that version for so long I wouldn't upgrade until the start of the next fiscal year, unless your PC has failed with no fixes. Also as you don't update regularly , I would buy the full retail version of 2016 so you will not required to update each year.

Thanks also.

With the inventory feature we just need to account for single items coming in and out. No parts of manufacturing. Would accounts version cut it?

It does what your current software does.

Hi Peter,

You'll need a minimum of Reckon Accounts Plus for a desktop version when upgrading from QuickBooks Pro 7.  This edition will also give you payroll.  If you want the ability to set different price levels, then you'll need at least Premier 2 user.  Reckon Accounts Hosted, paid by user, has all the functionality of the Reckon Accounts range.

Compare your options here.



regards,
John

What if I don't need payroll? Will Accounts do it. Just need normal accounting with Inventory

Peter  Payroll is part of it, whether you use it or not.  It is part of the package.  There is a version called "Accounts Accounting" and it has the following features for Inventory

Track your inventory

Easily manage your inventory with Accounts Accounting.

  • Track the cost of items you have sold and the income received.
  • Know quantities on hand and their value.
  • Your inventory is updated from purchase orders so you know what's on order and when you can expect it.
This version only comes with an annual licence which costs $360

The next version up from this is Plus and the one above that is Premier.  You can get more info on the different versions by going to the following website:

Once there, you can click on the "more info" link, underneath each version, to get more details.

Hi Peter,
Since you seem to have no need to upgrade every year (unless compliance laws change) look for an upgrade or Full version package of Plus or Premier 2 user so it is a once off fee.

Thanks everyone. Next issue is upgrading. I am ready a lot of information that says I cannot go from QuickBooks V7.4 to 2015 accounts? !

Hi Peter,
You can upgrade but it needs to go through various versions in between.
Reckon will provide you with the software necessary to upgrade, but unless you are 100% confident, I would suggest contacting your local Reckon Accredited Partner to perhaps help you with the process to ensure it is done correctly.
