When QuickBooks Enterprise is Overkill for Your Business
Ask the Accountant…
Question: I have a Promotional Products business using QuickBooks Enterprise. Our business has changed, and QuickBooks Enterprise is overkill for us now. Can we convert from Enterprise to Premier?
Answer: QuickBooks makes it easy to convert from Premier to Enterprise (a more expensive product), but not convert from Enterprise to Premier.
I have a reliable source who recommends the use of Big Red Consulting to convert your QB Enterprise file to a QB Premier file. It’s also at a very reasonable price. Go to www.bigredconsulting.com to check out the service and pricing.
