Moving to QuickBooks Online with CJBS

December 20, 2022

Dear Clients & Friends,  

As a business owner, one of the most important things you can do for your business is to make sure you have the right infrastructure in order to gain a better understanding of your financial situation and to make informed decisions. We know many of you are longtime QuickBooks users, so before we all take a break for the holidays, we wanted to let you know about an important change to how QuickBooks is charging for its services.

This will be of particular concern to clients currently using QuickBooks Desktop. While this used to be a less expensive option for some users, this will no longer be the case, moving to QuickBooks Online through CJBS can be more economical, as there are special discounts available.

For those who may not be familiar with QuickBooks, now is an excellent time to consider this comprehensive accounting tool. We offer tailored QuickBooks training, setup, and discounted pricing so you can get up and running quickly.

We know many of you previously bought QuickBooks Desktop with the knowledge that it would work for several years before you had to upgrade. From now on, though, the Desktop will have to be upgraded every year. Moreover, a tiered pricing structure for each additional user in a business will make it uneconomical for many of our clients. Essentially, the cheapest Desktop version (QB PRO 1 User) will cost $549.00 per year, and discounts will no longer be available through third parties.

The good news is that if you switch to QuickBooks Online Simple Start or Essentials through CJBS, your annual cost will be just $280 or $520, respectively. If you currently have the Desktop version for five users ($1,999), this is comparable to QuickBooks Online Plus, which is just $750 with CJBS. Our specialist QuickBooks team can take care of the conversion on your behalf. All we need is a backup of the company file.

Please be aware that you might see special offers directly from QuickBooks that appear to be cheaper, but these introductory rates will expire, leaving you with higher long-term costs. With CJBS’s wholesale pricing, we get a lifetime discount on your subscription that we transfer to you. In addition, special pricing for clients who move to QBO Payroll is also available, amounting to a 15% discount from retail pricing.

Note that these discounts apply only to clients newly converting to QuickBooks Online through CJBS unless you are a new client transferring from another firm’s wholesale platform. Clients making the switch within 60 days of leaving another platform also qualify for the discount.

Finally, clients with multiple entities on QuickBooks Desktop can take advantage of an additional discount, with discounted CJBS pricing for the first entity and just $10 per month for all other entities for two years!

The big picture is that whatever your particular circumstances, now is the time to make a move from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks online. And with CJBS, the switch is both easier and much more economical. Please reach out to discuss how we can help you make the most of QuickBooks Online in 2023 and beyond.

Happy holidays from all of us at CJBS!
