What's new in QuickBooks Premier Software

 

QuickBooks 2015 Added - key features

  • Home page insights- now view how your business is performing: top customers, income and expenses and profit and loss.

  • Collaborate better with your Accountant - save a copy of your company file to a shared folder right from QuickBooks Premier- your accountant must have an active Pro Advisors membership or be using QuickBooks Accountant Desktop Plus subscription, both the accountant and the client must be on QuickBooks 2015.

  • Improved reporting - can be read easier with alternate line highlighting, make comments right on reports, and email multiple reports from QuickBooks.
  • Notes - just got better!- pin that important note per customer, vendor or employee where all can see. Only one note can be pinned per.
  • Single window for reminders and notifications - all in one place- even notes from accountants.

QuickBooks 2014 Added - key features

  • Customer, Vendor and Employee data readily available.
  • Invoice Time & Expense window- Invoice for unbilled time or expense for a customer or multiple customers from one place.  Select one customer and you can pick and choose which time or expense to include in the invoice.  If multiple customers are chosen then all unbilled time or expenses for each customer will be included in their invoice.

  • Customize email templates to include either customer/job info, see all emails sent to customer, and include multiple attachments on emails from QuickBooks.
  • Now see key reports with one click or track bounced checks.

QuickBooks 2007 Added - key features

  • Whole new design for easier navigation.
  • New customer, vendor and employee centers
  • Customer Center interactive demo in QuickBooks
  • Filter customer and vendor lists for specific criteria
  • New Vendor Center shows all your vendors and what you owe them in one simple screen
  • New Employee Center shows all your employees and what you're paying them in one simple screen
  • New Payroll Center for Do-it-yourself payroll will help improve the accuracy and timeliness of PR related functions by providing information about when payroll, and PR Liabilities are due, who to pay and how much is owed. This center automatically reminds you if important dates. Plus the process of setting up QuickBooks Payroll has been greatly simplified.
  • Always on audit trail that does not slow down performance!
    All versions have switched to using the sequel database platform.
  • Add multiple e-mail and shipping addresses for your customers.  Now you can set Cc e-mail addresses in the customer record which will pre-populate all e-mails created in QuickBooks for that customer.
  • Processing credit card refunds- now there is a convenient way to show that a refund was provided on the credit memo.  Also a Bcc field has been added and users can set company wide default e-mail addresses to pre-populate the Bcc field (another improvement to your internal controls!)
  • Voided checks are correctly accounted for by creating offsetting journal entries in the affected accounting period.
  • Improved window for "enter bills".  See the vendors address that will print on the bill payment checks.
  • Improved communication between the item record cost field and the replacement cost purchased on checks, credit card charges, bills and POs.  Now you have the option to update the cost in the inventory or service item when creating a new purchase transaction. Now you can base change item prices on unit cost.  This is a choice to change cost of an item in the item record (via a pop-up window) at the time the purchase transaction is entered. You can elect NOT to display the pop-up message via a checkbox, but whatever choice you make on that transaction (to update the item record with the new cost or NOT) QuickBooks will use that as the default behavior.  Its a good idea to discuss this new feature with all data entry personnel. You can reverse this decision by selecting "bring back all one time messages" option under preferences (general).   If the item is a component in an assembly, the bill of materials average cost will change when the assembly item is built
  • Customized pricing and rounding options make it easier to keep your pricing competitive
  • Inventory - Includes a new field for manufacturers part number. Search and sort by your part number or the vendors.
  • Finally - QuickBooks now posts reconciliation differences to a new account called reconciliation differences- a P&L account (sure sounds immaterial but a true time saver for your accountant!)

    QuickBooks Premier and Enterprise
  • An improved bill of materials that includes (total cost to produce) with the ability to factor in overhead costs such as labor, supplies and depreciation

Why is QuickBooks Premier worth the extra money?

Premier takes the set-up process beyond the basics  No more wheel spinning or guess work on the right set-up for your business. You will reduce transaction errors by using the dynamite customized set-up tools that QuickBooks premier includes.  Premier comes pre customized  plus provides a sample company file that help non accountants see the total capability of QuickBooks for their industry.  Because of the added efficiency and data collection features, the extra cost for the software becomes immaterial when the enhanced reporting providing the opportunity to make better management decisions.

  • More Than 100 Professional Form Design Templates help small businesses look more professional without having to purchase expensive stationery
  • Remote access is a free service for 12 months so you get anytime anywhere flexibility and accessibility to your records.
  • Each industry version of QuickBooks Premier comes with sample companies specific to that industry. Not sure  how a transaction should be entered? You can view the industry specific help on every screen,   or open the sample company to see how examples of how it should be handled.
  • Industry specific flavors of QuickBooks premier offer easy to use help which identifies how most businesses within that industry use QuickBooks to gather important marketing information or track details and transactions unique to that type of business.  Industry specific "flavors" come in Nonprofit, Retail, Wholesale and Manufacturers, Accountant, and Contractor.  If there is no industry specific version that could be adapted to your company, purchase the accountant edition.  The QuickBooks Premier Accountant Edition combines all the best of each industry version by including  the sample files, help menus and chart of accounts available in each of the industry specific flavors. With so many examples to look at,  developing  the best set-up for your business becomes easier.  The accountants version includes depreciation features and adjusting entries your accountant will use that are  not available in other QuickBooks Premier software editions.
  • If you sell a product,  the sales module in Premier editions (Wholesale, Retail & Accountants) provides for order taking, order fulfillment and converting orders into purchase orders generating time savings plus the tools needed to provide great customer service.
  • If you have several locations and prepare payroll with QuickBooks you will appreciate the ability to enter payroll by sorting employees by location.
  • If you are not a  bookkeeper -  QuickBooks Premier has taken care of much of the "customization" needed for your business. This helps non accountants avoid bad set-up decisions that result in mistakes and confusion. Each industry version comes with a "predefined" company (without transactions) that contains a complete chart of accounts. If your industry needs to sort their data by more than just income and expenses, the QuickBooks Premier version's sample companies and  predefined company files are designed to help you make this happen.   The predefined  company file has been tweaked to help you record your business transactions.   A starter list of items used for invoicing and purchasing that are standard to the industry also come with the predefined company template.  Some of the predefined companies within the Premier industry specific editions are: 
                         QuickBooks comes with predefined Charts of accounts for many industries which can be customized to fit your needs
    • Dental Practice  
    • Veterinary Practice  
    • Contractor Business
    • Architecture Firm 
    • Consulting Business
    • Engineering Firm 
    • Interior Design Firm
    • Graphic Design/Advertising agency
    • Law firm
    • More examples listed in the image
  • QuickBooks help documentation is available throughout the software.  With help menus,  "How do I" menus on every window, and QuickBooks tips for your industry,  computerizing your business or changing accounting software is not such a daunting a task.  Training through seminars, books, or with on-site or remote assistance by a Certified QuickBooks Pro advisor  is still recommended.  But, with QuickBooks Premier you can get started immediately with the help menu that appears after completing the set-up wizard. For example here is a sampling of what the help menu has to offer:
    • Finish your company setup
    • Choose the right sales form for your business
    • Learn how to bill a customer.
    • How QuickBooks terminology applies to your business
    • Common mistakes new users sometimes make
    • Customize the way QuickBooks looks
    • Practice using QuickBooks

      The accounts and classes provide the optimum set-up for job management reports. With the predefined  set-up it is possible to compare your estimates with actual expenses by job phase without creating a nightmare of detail within the chart of accounts.  The set-up wizard will ask you to fine tune the preferences to your needs.
    • A getting started with Quickbooks for contractors is the first window that appears once you have created your company file.  It provides the industry specific help:
      •  Learn how to create estimates, invoices and change orders
      • Learn how to use job cost reports
      • Help setting up a predefined company

  • Unpaid Job Bills by Vendor
  • Job Costs by Vendor
  • Job Costs Detail
  • Billed/Unbilled hours by Person and by Job and by Activity

QuickBooks Premier does a great job with job costing, progress billing, time and material billing. The estimate form, inventory tracking, unbilled time report, ease of tracking change orders,  printing 1099's for subcontractors are just a few features that make this an excellent choice for contractors with limited office staff . Once the company moves forward with full time employees devoted just to purchasing, or estimating, or project managing, and / or warehouse management it is time to dive into a heavy duty contractor software that can offer scheduling, budgeting and other project management features. Master Builder (an Intuit software) has included these additional features and is also a more robust software which can handle the additional transactions without slowing down your system.

Health Care Practices

 
Healthcare Edition is no longer being promoted as part of the industry-specific QuickBooks product line

The product is not present on Intuit's Web sites, or in retail stores, because customers with a healthcare practice have indicated that they want a healthcare-specific version of QuickBooks to offer practice management capabilities, or integrate with their existing practice management systems. QuickBooks does not offer this functionality, and does not integrate with practice management software applications. For this reason, it is not being actively promoted with  financial software products.

Consider purchasing the QuickBooks Accountant Premier Edition.  The accountant edition includes all the predefined company files that  are included in each of the industry specific editions of QuickBooks Premier.  There are two predefined health care practice company templates (Dental Practices and Veterinary Practices) that have the preferences, list items and chart of accounts customized to these medical practices. There is also a sample medical company with one year of transactions for QuickBooks users to learn from.  If the two templates (Vet & Dental) do not work for you  (it takes only 10 minutes to set one up so you can review it), the set up wizard offers standard chart of accounts for general healthcare companies.  Help for medical practices still exist in QuickBooks Premier Accountants Edition.  It is a  bit tricky to get to, so write this down for future reference:

Under the help menu > select accountant help > scroll down to the bottom > select industry specific features help> click on healthcare and all the tips and tricks that existed in the Health Care edition is available to help you get started on track.
