When you look at the two companies Xero Accounting and GoDaddy hosting companies are very similar. They both provide cloud-based solutions, for a subscription fee and have small businesses as their major clients. They are both in a very good position to provide accounting software for their customers.
One of the Xero Directors sold an accounting software program to GoDaddy in 2012 and at the time TechCrunch reported that Accounting software is a logical service for them to provide to their small business clients. What does it mean for the future though?
We recently wrote about how QuickBooks uses the SuperStream-compliant service KeyPay to deliver payroll services because QuickBooks itself isn’t actually SuperStream compliant. Currently, the payroll feature in QuickBooks is free for all Small Business plans, as the company further positions itself as the low-cost accounting software option for Aussie small businesses.
I’m a fan of QuickBooks as the functionality is excellent and the cost of the software is still low. I’m really pleased to announce that you can now enrol in our QuickBooks Online Daily Transactions Course — but does QuickBooks fulfil Australian legal obligations to be SuperStream compliant?
The background is that from July 1 this year, all Australian businesses with fewer than 20 employees were required, by law, to be SuperStream compliant.
SuperStream is a government initiative to improve the efficiency of Australia’s superannuation system, namely by making superannuation a totally electronic process.
Most cloud-accounting packages that have been developed for the Australian market (such as major applications, like MYOB, Xero, Reckon and so forth, but not smaller apps like Zoho or QuickBooks, which can be used in Australia but don’t interface well with Australian tax procedures) are now all SuperStream compliant, with one exception: QuickBooks.

We’re coming to a rather frantic yet very exciting end to the 2016 calendar year with a whole bunch of new course announcements coming — the first of which is the creation of our QuickBooks Online Daily Transactions Course! It’s currently only $50 so hurry up and enrol now to enrol at this price — it’ll go up soon as we develop new content to beef it up!
I written a lot about Quickbooks Online since Intuit, a MASSIVE accounting software company in the US, started to promote itself directly in Australia after breaking up with Reckon, their local distributor. And why did this happen? Because of the power of cloud accounting for software companies to deal direct with the customer!
Why a New QuickBooks Online Training Course?
Our QuickBooks Online Daily Transactions Course is the result of comparisons we’ve made between the accounting software programs and the belief that this software will start to take a larger chunk of the accounting software market in Australia — if for only one reason: the cost for the software is very low and remains low while they try to win market share. The functionality of QuickBooks is excellent, and as far as navigating and “user experience”, it is far easier and less clunky than having to install a software program on your computer, like you need to do with MYOB!
At EzyLearn we use each of these main accounting software programs (MYOB, Xero and Quickbooks) and for me, personally, QuickBooks is the pick of the bunch!
