QuickBooks 2009 for the Mac  

Posted by Mohammad Talha in , , , ,

It’s getting to be tax time here in the U.S. and if you’re like me you dread it. I usually end up promising myself to keep better records and be more organized next year. Well it’s next year and time to get your financial act together. If you work for yourself you need good accounting software and the leader in this category is clearly QuickBooks from Intuit.

The new QuickBooks 2009 for Mac starts with a wizard that asks questions about your business (”do you pay employees?”), then prepares an easy-to-understand interface with icons suited to the relevant aspects of your business. The updated “home page” (pictured) lays everything out in a clear and concise manner.

QuickBooks Pro 2007 for Mac lacked several key features that were available in the Windows application, namely being able to download and reconcile bank and credit card transactions directly from the institution – forcing many people to use the Windows version. Mac users had to download a “QuickBooks Web Connect QBO” file from the bank’s Web site, then import that into QuickBooks. The Windows version, meanwhile, can connect directly to most banks from within the application itself.

I’m happy to report that QuickBooks 2009 for Mac fixes that. It now works seamlessly with more banks (I tested it with Chase and Citi) and imports transitions directly from within the app. (full Story)
