Build Forecasts, Create Budgets and Monitor Performance
Understand how your business is doing, forecast expenses and create budgets with QuickBooks business accounting software:
  • Analyse past expenses and project what you'll spend in the months to come
  • Build effective budgets, then monitor how closely you stick to them
  • Identify where you can cut costs - or where spending a bit more can boost profits

Understanding your business is key to improving profitability and making the most of new opportunities. QuickBooks Premier gives you easy access to information about past performance - along with tools to make future predictions.

Do you rely on guesswork when you budget for new projects?

The best way to budget realistically for a new project is to examine what similar projects have cost you in the past. QuickBooks lets you mine your previous accounting figures so you can produce budgets based on evidence and experience - not just opinion.
Use the Currency - Even if You Don't Speak the Language
With built-in support for multiple currencies, QuickBooks Premier makes international business a breeze. Work with suppliers and customers in their own currencies - and convert back to pounds to see where you stand.

  • Download the latest exchange rates and use them automatically
  • Set different prices for items in different currencies
  • Deal in as many currencies as you like - and switch between them easily


Multi-currency support is built into QuickBooks Premier. Unlike in other business accounting software, you don't need to rely on workarounds or guess the exchange rate.

Do you know where you stand with international customers?

Time differences, language and cultural issues ... sometimes it's hard to know exactly what international customers and suppliers are thinking.
QuickBooks Premier can't help you with that. But it does incorporate international transactions seamlessly into reports, letting you switch between currencies so you can see the impact of exchange rate changes, new work or other factors.
Spot-on Stock Tracking for Retailers and Manufacturers
Access up-to-the-minute stock levels so you always know what's available to sell - and when to order more.

  • Maintain stock levels by setting re-order points and tracking back orders
  • Build and track products from assembly to ready-to-sell
  • Buy in one unit, stock in another - and sell in a third


QuickBooks automatically tracks your stock, giving you greater confidence in stated stock levels. Spend less time reconciling stock - and more time selling it.

Do you buy in one unit but sell in another?

QuickBooks Premier has built-in support for multi-unit sales, so you can buy and sell in different units.
For instance, if you run a bar you might buy wine by the case but sell it by the bottle and by the glass. QuickBooks Premier understands how many glasses make up a bottle and a case, and will automatically do the sums so you know how many cases of wine you'll need to order after a busy evening.
Your Whole Team Can Use QuickBooks at the Same Time
With support for up to 30 simultaneous users, QuickBooks Premier allows different people to access your company finances at the same time.

  • There's no need to log out before someone else can log in
  • Simultaneous access is ideal for busy finance or sales departments
  • Coordinate work from your desk with the built-in instant messenger


Please note: when you purchase online, you may only select up to three users. If you need more than three users, call us on 0808 168 9535 . You must purchase an extra licence for each user you wish to add to the system3.

Does a single login system restrict your current accounting system?

Many business accounting software packages only allow single user access. If someone leaves their desk but stays logged in, it's impossible for anyone else to use the system.
With QuickBooks, up to three people can use the software simultaneously. And if that's not enough, you can use the instant messenger function to remotely log people off (after checking if they're using the system, of course!).
Communicate With Your Accountant in a Common Language
QuickBooks Premier allows you to work more easily with your accountant:

  • Securely send figures to your accountant in moments, in a format they can use4
  • Reduce costs - your accountant spends less time compiling your figures
  • Simple reports help you ask your accountant the right questions


What's more, we've taken features traditionally only available to accountants, and modified them so non-accountants can understand them. It's advanced accounting, minus the jargon.

Do you sometimes have trouble understanding your accountant?

Some financial professionals don't seem to speak quite the same language as the rest of us. It's sometimes difficult to understand exactly what they're saying - and what the implications are for your business.
QuickBooks Premier can help you communicate better with your accountant. It gives you a clear set of figures you can both refer to, and provides you with easy-to-understand reports summarising the state of your business.
Your Key Business and Financial Information in One Place
Graphically see what state your business is in with the easy-to-interpret Company Snapshot:

  • A single screen gives you a complete overview of your business
  • Makes financial management easy: see who owes you what, and what you owe
  • Includes important reminders - so you can do away with scribbled notes


Keep on top of your financial management by starting every day with the Company Snapshot. Then use it to guide your activities, so you get on top of things before they get on top of you.

Struggling to see your business's health in Excel?

It's hard to use Excel to build a consolidated view showing the state of your business. You need to juggle formulas and enter data manually - and even then, just one slip of the keyboard could result in inaccurate results. Besides, Excel doesn't have reminder functions built in.
Customers and Suppliers Matter. Keep Track of Them All.
How do you keep track of important business contacts? Excel? Outlook? Paper? A mixture? Perhaps it's time to simplify. With QuickBooks, you never have to enter a customer's details more than once.

  • Get every detail about your customers and suppliers in one place
  • From contact information to credit risk, see all the details about anyone you work with
  • All the information about a customer or supplier is displayed on a single screen


The Customer and Vendor Centres in QuickBooks are where you'll find this information. And when you search, the QuickFilter helps you find the right record as fast as possible - handy if you're on the phone to a customer.

Does more than one person answer the phones in your business?

Sometimes it can be hard to keep track of your dealings with different customers - especially when they might be in touch with several different people in your business.

QuickBooks Premier consolidates all your information customer information in one place. And because up to three people can access it3, you can be sure whoever answers the phone will have all the information they need, instantly to hand.
Reports About Your Business That Actually Make Sense
Base your business decisions on facts. QuickBooks Premier lets you analyse business data in as much detail as you need:

  • Choose from over 135 templates, or build your own advanced reports
  • Analyse unpaid bills, payment histories, cash on hand, inventory, waste and more
  • Get an overall picture or a granular view: click reports to drill down into figures


With all your important business information in one place, it's easier to sift, analyse and interpret it. And because QuickBooks processes data in moments, there's no need for any time-consuming manual analysis.

Are you losing out by overrunning on work?

It can be hard to keep track of hours worked and then bill clients accurately, especially with lots of people working on a project. And if you work to a fixed price, you can end up working longer than you budgeted for.
QuickBooks Premier lets you track the time worked on individual projects, so you can analyse how they take and how many hours you billed. Use this information to determine whether you're accurately accounting for your time in estimates and invoices.
Your VAT Return Done Fast and Right, Every Quarter
VAT. A headache, right? Calculating what you owe and what you can claim can be a real a hassle - especially if you do it manually. QuickBooks Premier uses financial information you've already entered to generate your VAT returns - automatically.

  • Save hours by creating your VAT return in minutes, then file it securely online
  • eFile from within QuickBooks - it's fully tested with HMRC systems
  • The latest VAT rules are incorporated, so your returns are always correct


VAT is rarely pleasurable, unless you're owed a refund. But with QuickBooks accounting software, at least it's easy - so you get more time to focus on running your company.

Ever had trouble getting your VAT return in on time?

Those quarterly VAT deadlines seem to come round awfully fast. And it's easy to miss that 30 day window, especially with a bunch of demanding customers.
With QuickBooks Premier, you can generate your VAT returns when you like. For most businesses it only takes a few minutes. And now HMRC requires you to file online, you can do it from within QuickBooks itself. There's no need to allow for postal delays or worry about the paperwork getting lost in the mail.
Easy Estimates. Easy Invoicing. Actually, It's Just Easy.
Lots of customers, lots of tasks - it's no wonder producing estimates, invoices and chasing payments seems to take as long as the work itself. QuickBooks Premier cuts these overheads:

  • Generate invoices and estimates using details you've already entered - in seconds
  • See the status of orders at-a-glance: are they estimated, invoiced, paid, or overdue?
  • Send out estimates, invoices and overdue notices in batches, by email


With QuickBooks business accounting software you never have to enter information more than once. For instance, create an invoice from your original estimate in one click.

Do you produce estimates and invoices manually?

Manually generating estimates for new business takes time. That's fine if you get the job, but if not then you could be looking at significant wasted effort.
QuickBooks Premier lets you store templates for different kinds of job, so you can compile estimates quickly and easily. Just fill in the specifics. Then when the job's done, you can turn your estimate into an accurate invoice with just a click or two.
You Worked Those Hours. Make Sure You Get Paid For Them.
The QuickBooks built in project management helps you track how every employee is using their time, so you can accurately invoice for the hours you spend on each project.

  • Keep track of exactly what work your staff have done for each client
  • Make estimates more accurate by creating standard task lists for different jobs
  • Run real-time reports to see what you have and haven't billed


This business accounting software even reminds you of unbilled hours when you invoice a customer. By tracking time and expenses for every job and using that information to generate estimates and invoices, you'll always get paid for the work you've done.

Still using pen and paper to track hours worked?

Old-fashioned timesheets or simple pen and paper still work - as long as you remember to fill forms in and don't mislay them.
But why rely on paper when QuickBooks Premier can efficiently log how long you or your employees spend on each project? It never loses any information and you can transfer the work log directly to an invoice, without entering anything again.
