QuickBooks is an accounting software package developed and marketed by Intuit. First introduced in 1983, QuickBooks products are geared mainly toward small and medium-sized businesses and offer on-premises accounting applications as well as cloud-based versions that accept business payments, manage and pay bills, and payroll functions.


GnuCash is an accounting program that implements a double-entry bookkeeping system. It was initially aimed at developing capabilities similar to Intuit, Inc.'s Quicken application, but also has features for small business accounting. Recent development has been focused on adapting to modern desktop support-library requirements. Let's find out which Software Is Right for Your Business in 2021 by doing GnuCash vs QuickBooks based on pros and cons.



The ease of adding vendors and customers is great. Once you iron out the how to of the invoice templates they can be very useful to switch what is needed on each invoice per customer.

Up time is fantastic and they always send out down alerts immediately. Love the reports to Excel - works great. You can access QuickBooks desktop remotely from anywhere and anytime.


This includes bank accounts, and stock portfolios. And the ability to run reports that turn my accounts in to pie and bar charts is very helpful as well.

As there is a large community of users, one can stay assured of the latest updates as well as forum support.



I had a little bit of trouble navigating through my past transactions for previous years. Other people have been having the same problems.

The user experience was awful compared .I just could not get on with it. Unfortunately it just didn't work for me


Maybe it is not so complete and somebody could miss some features.

It requires a lot of time to set up initially ,especially if you are using it for a business. Is also hard to integrate on mobile.
