Firmly established as one of the leading UK small business bookkeeping packages, Intuit's QuickBooks has managed to introduce new features every year. Sometimes they're relative duds, like remote access to your accounts (how often will you require that?); sometimes they're more useful, like the ability to split incoming payments over more than one job for the same customer. Last year's big idea was the ability to process credit card payments online. This requires a QuickBooks Merchant Account to process your credit card receipts online directly from QuickBooks. Credit cards also feature in one of QuickBooks's payment options, letting you email invoices as PDFs to your customers, which they can then pay electronically.
