Enhanced Access restrictions- for example, restrict
individual user access to specific reports, bank accounts,
lists, and activities
QuickBooks Enterprise does a better job to help you prevent fraud
from occurring in your business. Honest employees
can become dishonest when they
see large bank account balances or assets that are not being
guarded. If they can't see these amounts, then your risk
is greatly reduced. That is where
user access permissions play a role. Segregating duties - where
collusion would have to take place before fraud can occur-
is also key and where
QuickBooks Enterprise can help you. For example- The employee
entering bills should not be allowed to set up new
vendors. This employee could create a
fictitious vendor name with his/her address and enter fictitious
bills for payment. An employee applying customer
payment should not also be permitted to
enter credit memos, doing so could allow an employee to divert
collectible funds into personal accounts. And
setting the sales preference to require
QuickBooks Enterprise to save the transaction when printing will
ensure that the always on Audit trail track changes made
to that transaction which
produces an Audit trail report and a Voided/Deleted transaction report.
Be sure you assign a different employee to review these
reports periodically for
questionable transactions. In addition, to restrictions there is a
closing date password that should be set each month after
bank reconciliations are
complete which prevents changes to transactions. And finally, there is
the credit card protection feature - even if you do not
use the Intuit merchant services
account, turning on this feature requires users to have a complex
password that must be changed every 90 days.

Customizable Fields-include up
to 15 custom fields with QuickBooks Enterprise on Items
(Pro/Premier limited to 5) Plus in QuickBooks
Enterprise you can assign what type of information
can be entered into these fields (date, alpha, numeric, #
decimals - etc) or provide a drop down menu for the
employee to select from. Now when you run reports
filtered on these fields you can get consistent results
since employees cannot find creative ways of
individualizing how they complete these fields. For
example, on items you may want to track Bin number, serial
number sold, color/size, date ordered, required date,
picked by, completed by, inspected by and so on. In
addition you can make these fields a "required field" on
lists or transactions. Customization of fields is possible
for customers, vendors and employees as well. The same
customization options apply but in QuickBooks Enterprise
you can have a total of 30 name custom fields with a
maximum of 12 for any name list (customer, vendor,
employee). In Pro/Premier, the maximum is 7 custom
fields per names list. Plan to continue on the Full
Service Plan Annually - Intuit
prices the Full Service Plan at a value that you cannot ignore.
If you purchase a 5 user version of Enterprise
solutions, your renewal fee in 12 months will be $950.00
(10 user renewal is $1,450,
30 user renewal is $2,400). The renewal fee, is a
fee to receive the latest edition of QuickBooks
Enterprise and includes another 12 months free technical
support, which can come in handy as your data file starts
to grow in size, you also get continued free services
including online backup. This full service plan is
optional. With your purchase of the QuickBooks Enterprise
v 13 you will receive the next version if released within
12 months of purchase at no additional cost. Intuit has
released a new version annually since 1996 in September of
each year. Each new version includes software
productivity enhancements. In addition the Full
Service plan includes Free Intuit Technical Support, and
free Automatic Offsite backups.
Auto Sales Price Markup- Set a
default markup percentage for each item, when the cost
price changes, you can elect to automatically update the
selling price by the markup. The setting includes an
option to always update the cost, but ask before updating
Find And Select Items-added to invoice, sales orders, and sales
receipt forms. Now easily find the item without endless
scrolling.This feature is not available on purchase orders or bills..
QuickBooks Enterprise is the only version of QuickBooks
that offers the ability to create up to 750 unique price
Enhanced Inventory receiving -
The item receipt and the bill are now 2 different
transactions. An item receipt will increase inventory as of
the received date but not increase A/P instead it will
increase a clearing account, the bill will
increase A/P based on the date you enter the bill, which
will NOT change your inventory values, instead it will
post to the clearing account. So after posting 1
item receipt and its related bill, the clearing account
will be zero. But any future changes to that item
receipt or bill which is also not done to the related bill
or item receipt will cause that clearing account to no
longer be zero. So strict controls should be implemented
to avoid this problem. This feature is optional, and
will cure the problems previously incurred due to negative
inventory counts or changes to when inventory quantities
post. However, this change is a global change and is
irreversible. You should test this change on a copy
of your data file to see the impact on your financials
before implementing this change. This feature may
cause conflicts with third party software you are
currently using. Definitely a must have for NEW QuickBooks
files, and a TO BE CAREFULLY RESEARCHED with an existing
QuickBooks file. Need help with this
evaluation? Call us 800-216-0763

Common features to the
QuickBooks line of Software
Is QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions by Intuit your right choice?
For current users, here are some indications that you
are ready for the enterprise edition:
Are you experiencing inconvenience with your current
version of QuickBooks?
Do you have to start a new data file every year?
Do you want to limit user's QuickBooks access to only
those features necessary to perform the job?
Do you have to delete old items to add new ones?
In multi-user mode, does one user have to wait for
another to complete
their task before starting their own?
Do certain reports take a long time to generate?
Do you have a need for more than 5 simultaneous users?
Do you need better simultaneous user performance?
Is your data file growing and exceeding 100 MB?
Do you have long customer, vendor, or item lists (more
Do you have multiple locations?
Are you a growing business?
Do you want your employees to do more but want to limit
the amount of access ?
How many transactions are you going to have in a given
year? For file sizes over 300MB we suggest running
QuickBooks Enterprise on a dedicated high end server
with Microsoft Remote Desktop services (formerly Terminal services). If your file size will exceed 1 Gig in a given
year, QuickBooks Enterprise may not be the right
choice for you.
Comparison of QuickBooks Premier or QuickBooks Enterprise?
If services that come FREE with your
initial purchase of Enterprise do not excite you, strictly
on a total cost of ownership analysis, QuickBooks
Enterprise can be less expensive to own than QuickBooks
Premier.Effective with the 2012 version , QuickBooks Pro now only
permits a maximum of 3 users accessing the data file at
one time for a cost of $520
for a 3 user license. Companies that currently use
an older version of a 5 user license Pro will need to consider Premier or
Enterprise when they decide to upgrade. The chart
below describes how QuickBooks Enterprise can be less
expensive to own than
QuickBooks Premier. QuickBooks Premier 5 user
license will cost a minimum of $1,480 and QuickBooks
Enterprise promotion price is generally $2400 (although
promotions do come out a few times a year at $2100) -
So the first year additional cost is between $700-$1000. Is it worth
the extra money? We think so QuickBooks Enterprise
is worth the additional initial cost, and over the long
term will save you money..
1. Cost of acquiring the next edition - with QuickBooks
Premier- you pay full price each year- and if you pay for
any technical support, you have already spent more on
And not upgrading each
year can mean LOST PRODUCTIVITY of the employees. The
improvements that come out each year are all geared to
doing more with less! There may be
a year you will not use the enhancements, but overall, that will
not be the case.
2. QuickBooks Enterprise is tested to
be 25-50% better performing than QuickBooks Premier
3. Enterprise can restrict user access permissions
(improved internal controls) and not available in Premier
or Pro. This feature alone, makes Enterprise a
superior product QuickBooks Premier and if even if
your company has less than 5 users, this edition protects
your companies assets, and deters fraud and promotes safeguarding
of company assets.
Advanced Permissions offer a huge improvement to
internal controls. 115 access rights versus 8 in QuickBooks Premier. Giving staff permission to access all
features of QuickBooks is risky business.
Too much information provided to employees who do not need
the information to do their jobs could provide fraud motivation
to a disgruntled or financially distressed employee. If a fraud can
be rationalized by an employee who also has an opportunity
to commit the fraud; and the employee has additional
outside pressure or incentive to respond to that
opportunity; and if conditions in your business are such
that getting caught seems to be an unlikely scenario,
your business is vulnerable.
Enterprise Editions allow you to give access to just
information needed to do the job. A robust
permissions and access features have been added to the
Enterprise suite of software. Users can now assign
distinct access levels, including view-only, create,
modify, delete, and print, to over 155 separate
entitlements. Plus print a report of each users
permissions for periodic review. Plus selectively assign
certain rights only previously available to the admin user
. And finally an always on" delete report means that a
fraudster can no erase an audit trail.

Your accountant will need to use QuickBooks Enterprise
edition and not QuickBooks Premier edition. If you
intend on upgrading, call you accountant to see if they
own QuickBooks Enterprise. If not, and many CPAs do not
own this edition, discuss the alternatives.
1. Use a remote access service (www.logmein.com) is
free (print reports to a PDF and email final reports)
2. Have your IT person set up a user on the server
using remote desktop services or terminal services
3. Send your CPA the reports he/she requests since
they may be using their own write-up software.

the Bill Now that will save time- one click from
the invoice and the credit memo is 90% done!
Contributed Reports- Report writing
can be tricky for the novice user. Now there are at least
one hundred (and growing) of report templates ready
and waiting for you to download and start using. The titles
are clear along with a description. Contributed reports are
found under the report menu. These reports alone could save a
QuickBooks user time and money!
Improvements- Now you can select
which memorized transactions you would like to enter in the
enter now window and which you would like to enter later.

QuickBooks 2012 if you save your documents on your local
computer/server. QuickBooks will keep the documents in a
folder named ATTACH found in the same location you keep your
QuickBooks Company files. There are NO user rights
assigned to these documents so your staff will be able to open
the saved documents without having access to QuickBooks.
Plus you will need to
backup this folder yourself! It is not part of the
Improved Company file condense.
- QuickBooks 2012 is better at shrinking company files. There
is now an added option to remove inventory transactions. It
replaces inventory transactions with a inventory adjustment.
In addition, you can remove all estimates, sales orders,
purchase orders and pending invoices.

being viewed. In QuickBooks 2012 you can filter the item
list fro items that have less than zero on hand, greater than
zero on hand or customize the view to your needs.
Automatic price adjustments
in QuickBooks Enterprise. Set a default markup
percentage for each item, when the cost price changes, you can
elect to automatically update the selling price by the markup.
The setting includes an option to always update the cost, but
ask before updating the price.

Serial number OR Lot number tracking
- select which forms you want to show the Serial numbers or
QuickBooks can be set to warn if the serial or lot number is
blank, duplicated or does not exist.
Enhanced Inventory receiving -
The item receipt and the bill are now 2 different
transactions. An item receipt will increase inventory as of
the received date but not increase A/P. Instead, the item
increase a QuickBooks Enterprise Chart of accounts - clearing account,
when the bill is entered against the item receipt, the bill will
increase A/P based on the date you enter the bill, the bill
will NOT change your inventory values, instead the
post to the clearing account. So after posting 1 item
receipt and its related bill, the clearing account will be
zero. But any future changes to that item receipt or
bill which is also not done to the related bill or item
receipt will cause that clearing account to no longer be
zero. So strict controls should be implemented to avoid this
problem. This feature is optional, and will cure the
problems previously incurred due to negative inventory
counts or changes to when inventory quantities post.
However, this change is a global change and is irreversible.
You should test this change on a copy of your data file to
see the impact on your financials before implementing this
change. This feature may cause conflicts with third
party software you are currently using.
Definitely a must implement for NEW QuickBooks files, and a

terrific tool to avoid having changes made to your
accounting documents. But for those companies that were
still working open sales orders and estimates and purchase

protection worthless. NOW.. a preference with the set
closing date allows
you to exclude estimates, sales orders, and purchase orders
from closing date restrictions.

labels with the customer address information from your
QuickBooks Invoice or Sales Receipt forms. No more writing

you ship. And you can sign up for Shipping Manager through
your QuickBooks software and start using it right away.

QuickBooks will reduce your inventory based on a
conversion to the smallest unit of measure. For example sell 1 can
of soda or one six-pack. QuickBooks will
reduce the soda inventory by 6. Caution: Pricing for the six
is based on the single can of soda pricing.

the item record with the new cost or NOT) QuickBooks will use
that as the default behavior. Its a good idea to discuss
