Intuit has announced “free” global access to QuickBooks Online Accountant (QBOA), enabling accounting professionals in 170-plus countries to move to the cloud faster, scale their practices, and bring more value to their clients and the wider economy. 

Intuit, which serves more than 100 million customers worldwide, is one of the biggest software companies in the world. Now, Intuit QuickBooks is the first provider in the market to deliver at this scale for the accounting profession. 

Accounting professionals make a huge contribution to the economy at a local, regional and global level, working as trusted business partners to the small business community. QBO-Accountant will enable accountants around the world to manage their practice workflow, client interactions and billing all in one place.

Developed with a select group of accountants globally over the past 12 months, QuickBooks Online Accountant – Global Edition is a refined suite of benefits to help professional accountants move to the cloud faster and drive greater efficiency and scalability of their firms. 

QuickBooks Online Accountant benefits professional accountants anywhere through the following set of features: 

  • Singular login and dashboard view of real-time and historic client data, current projects and deadlines.
  • Automated transactions and specific rules classifying data, minimizing manual data entries and reducing risk of errors.
  • Options to use workflows to send reminders to the right people at the right time and automate common tasks – invaluable for bookkeepers in busiest periods of the year.
  • Integrated apps providing functionality that spans reporting, inventory management, expense management, payroll and ecommerce.
  • Predictive AI-based ability to estimate income tax/VAT contributions, support self-assessment filings with an automated breakdown of earnings and tax-deductible expenses.

Assisted QuickBooks Online Accountant on-boarding for accountant professionals and bookkeepers is free, via a Zoom session, and is focused on new clients who are new to QuickBooks, as well as any existing clients that aren’t actively using QuickBooks. It is a hands-on, “Do-It-With-Me” session.

To celebrate the launch of the QBO-Accountant global edition, limited-time-only pricing bundles have also been announced. To help accountants get their small business clients started on QuickBooks Online, for the months of June, July and August, a $1 subscription deal will be active—$1 (or country currency equivalent), per month, per file.

The deal is available to further support digital expansion for global accountants. 

In addition, app developers can now use apps as part of the QuickBooks Global App Store to include payroll, payments, inventory and purpose-built applications for specific regions to integrate with QuickBooks. 

Global accountants can obtain more information, including on how to access the free QuickBooks Online Accountant Global platform, by visiting this official Intuit website.
