For some September means the end of summer and back to school. For accountants, bookkeepers and QuickBooks desktop users it means it’s time for a new version to be announced. This year Intuit has added new features that can benefit all users of QuickBooks. There are detailed articles on the new features written by my colleagues William Murphy at Insightful Accountant and Charlie Russell with Accountex Report. I have provided links to their articles for those that want more detail but here’s some highlights of what’s new.
If you have questions about the new features or would like to discuss upgrading your QuickBooks contact us, we are here to help
When choosing billing software there’s a lot to consider. Getting it “right” the first time will save expense and hassle and help the firm become more efficient and more profitable.

Many firms like to buy and “own” their desktop software. But some firms prefer the idea of paying a monthly fee rather than a big initial outlay. Tabs3 has recognized the need for flexibility and choice for those firms considering their Platinum SQL products. Now you have a choice and can choose the pricing plan that is right for you.
Tabs3 Platinum SQL products offer additional features like Tabs3 Connect, HotBackup, AutoRecovery and eNote, along with taking advantage of the 64-bit capability of computers. These features can make even small firms more productive. For some firms the initial outlay was a deterrent to gaining these benefits. Now Tabs3 offers the ability to get these features at a monthly price. You still choose the modules you want – Tabs3 Billing, Tabs3 Financial and/or PracticeMaster.
If you have been thinking of going to Platinum SQL, let us know, we can give you a quote and help you decide what is right for your firm.

It’s July and it’s time for a new version of Timeslips. Timeslips 2018 is scheduled for release on Tuesday, July 18, 2017.
We are often asked “Should I update?”. The answer is usually “it depends”. Factors like what version are you currently running, and what is your operating environment are as important as looking at the new features. While you may have heard rumors that Timeslips is going to a subscription model, this is not true. As Timeslips certified consultants, we can sell you a perpetual license version, with or without a support plan, or a subscription version. The choice is yours and we can help you choose.
This year there is an additional factor. Sage has announced that they will only be supporting the current version and one version back. Therefore, as of August, only Timeslips 2018, 2017 and Premium (subscription version) will be supported. If you are running E-Center or accepting credit cards through Sage Timeslips, you will need to be on a supported version. Upgrading while on a supported version is also less expensive. If you are on an older version of Timeslips and running Windows 10 or Office 2016, or planning to, it may be time to upgrade. Similarly, for larger firms that have not yet upgraded, the additional capacities and performance benefits of the newer versions mean that it may be a good time to upgrade.
Timeslips 2018 also offers some new features.
Many of these features were previously added to Timeslips Premium, so they have already been tested. If you would like to review the system requirements, please go to Timeslips system requirements
