Do you own enough homes to really need a quickbooks account for your rentals?
For Rentals - QuickBooks Desktop version
For all other - QuickBooks Online
I have only one right now, I want to buy more in the future. I want to be organized so I can take my info to the bank and show poof I have my financial in order. Thanks for the feedback. Plus if I don't use quickbooks then what is a better alternative?
I just keep track of everything in an excel spreadsheet and I have 6 rentals
I agree with Allison. Excel can handle it for now. A well organized spreadsheet will do the trick.
If you're not an accountant familiar with Quickbooks, I would not mess with it. It's insanely complex for the uninitiated.
With that said, my wife does my bookwork and we use QB for Desktop and she has our rentals as "classes", whatever that means.
I think the spreadsheet suggestion is your best bet right now, and since you're on a tablet just use Google Drive. (You do have a gmail account, right?)
If you use QuickBooks go with Pro for now.
