Save money by upgrading to QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions (QBES)

Save more of THIS – Upgrade to Enterprise AND SAVE MONEY!

QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions has many features not available in QuickBooks Pro or Premier. The point of THIS article is to show you how you can have access to the additional functionality AND save money on your software and payroll costs.

QuickBooks Pro and Premier users who process their own payroll pay for a subscription to Enhanced Payroll, typically costing $450.00 annually plus $4 per employee per month. Depending on the number of QuickBooks users that you have, and your employee count you could potentially gain the additional feature set of QuickBooks Enterprise and save hundreds or even in excess of a thousand dollars per year.

Example #1 – a company who has a single-user QuickBooks Pro User license that they upgrade only as required, every three years, and processes payroll for 25 employees would incur total software and payroll costs of $4,980 over three years. By upgrading to a QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions Gold license which includes payroll with no per employee fee, the company could save $1,818 over three years, over $600 per year.

Example #2 – a company who has a two-user license of QuickBooks Premier and 30 employees could save $1,504 over three years, over $500 per year.

Example #3 – a company who has a four-user license of QuickBooks Premier and 50 employees could save $1,966 over three years, over $650 per year.

The examples above factor in a 20% perpetual discount on the annual retail cost of QBES Gold level. That discount is available by purchasing QuickBooks Enterprise through Barons’, Inc.

The variables that we need to look at to determine your savings are:

  • The level of QuickBooks you currently using, Pro versus Premier
  • Number of users
  • Employee count
  • The level of QuickBooks Enterprise level you would like to move to
  • Discounts available for QBES by purchasing through Barons’, Inc.

Savings are potentially available with as few as 13 employees, depending on the other variables.

Unlike QuickBooks Pro and Premier, which only require an upgrade every three years to maintain access to certain features, QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions is a subscription product, renewed annually, but paid annually (discounted) or by the month.

if you have a need for any of the additional functionality described below anyway, approaching the purchase from this vantage point is a great way to pay for that functionality.
