QuickBooks has three plans: the Simple Start, the Essentials and the Plus. The most affordable plan is obviously the Simple Start priced at a mere $10/mo. Not too shabby! don’t you love modern-tech?

QuickBooks Online Is for You If…

Right? See, this is why accounting software is such a mind-blower when entrepreneurs first discover it or first update from older versions/types.
