Summary: I was misled by the title "Enhanced Payroll", which later I realized it only allows one employee. If you have more than one employee, you have to pay $2.60 a month for each additional employee. What a smart way to entice people to buy and to make money! Besides, the features unnecessarily more complicated than before, and I have to look for the simple click now it is hard to find.
Cons: payroll only for 1 employee unnecessarily more complicated features
Summary: Caution - just "activating" the payroll service requires a credit card, even for the 1 included employee. (Is it appropriate for a company to collect your credit card information when a purchase is *not* being made?). Even via phone, Intuit refused to activate the payroll code without a credit card, even for the included 1 employee.
Pros: it is used by my accountant
Cons: collects credit card information unncessarily filled with ads for their other products no significant benefit over previous versions previous version included 3 employee payroll
Excerpt: We are very happy with our purchase of QuickBooks Pro 2014. We shopped several places and B&H by far had the best price! Not only are we happy with the price but the professionalism and speed of delivery. The product is everything it was claimed to be!
Summary: I was using V. 2012 which lost some functions in the switch to Windows 8/8.1. Intuit should have had those all patched...but didn't. Yes, I was annoyed, but I bought V. 2014 as I found it for a great price here on Newegg. There is a new interface, but that doesn't change things either way...back to business as usual.
Pros: All the functions I use work with Windows 8.1
Summary: WARNING - THE "INCLUDES ENHANCED PAYROLL 1-YR SUBSCRIPTION" IS NOT TRUE!!!!! DO NOT BUY THIS IN AN ATTEMPT TO SAVE $350 ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION FOR PAYROLL IF YOU ALREADY RUN QB PAYROLL. In tiny, tiny print on the back of the box, it indicates that this software is good to pay one employee and easily add more. Yes, at $2/employee/company per month - and they keep your credit card number and automatically charge the fees, plus the annual subscription fee.
Pros: Was able to convert from Quickbooks 11 with little issues. Having never performed a transition with this program, I was unaware of the processes related to converting data file (company files). My advice to anyone taking on this transition: backup your data files and then update your main program. Follow that up with pulling in your company files, which will prompt you to updating them as well. It's as easy as that.
