A revolution is taking place in small-business accounting: While traditional desktop products such as QuickBooks and Sage 50/Peachtree continue to hold the lion’s share of the market, newer solutions are gaining traction and changing how small businesses and their accountants record and report transactions. Many of these solutions are cloud-based, some focus on niche markets and a few provide functionality such as workflow that has been difficult for smaller organizations to obtain in the past.

Materials are provided as an ebook.


  • Identidy major enhancements to traditional desktop accounting software for small businesses.
  • Define “collaborative accounting,” how it changes accounting procedures and processes, and how it potentially improves efficiency and accuracy.
  • Recognize differences between leading cloud-based solutions for small businesses, including QuickBooks Online, Wave Apps, Xero, FreshBooks, Kashoo and Bill.com, based on feature set and target markets.


  • Review current accounting solutions.
