What are the key differences between QuickBooks Online Essentials and Plus?
Online Essentials is the bestselling version of the online QuickBooks series, more powerful than Simple Start but not as feature filled as in the Plus version. With a price difference of about $13.00 per month ($156.00/year), the Plus version is geared towards companies that have 4 or more users of the software and advanced budgeting or income tracing needs. Both versions offer the ability to manage payroll as an add-on and accept credit cards. You also get all upgrades for free as long as your subscription is up-to-date. But with the Plus version, you will get the following features not found in Online Essentials:
- QuickBooks Online Plus has the ability to have up to 5 users with the option of adding more. Online Essentials is limited to just 3 users.
- With Online Plus you have the option of creating and sending PO’s, time/billing tracking per client, and detailed inventory tracking.
- Online Plus has more powerful business analysis reports with income and expense class tracking, budgeting review tools, and geo-location capabilities to help you track store performance by location.
- If you need to create 1099’s forms, then Online Essentials won’t be the best choice as that’s only found in the Plus version.
