At the seventh annual QuickBooks® Connect, Intuit® unveiled new innovations across the QuickBooks ecosystem to help accountants better serve their small business clients, grow their practices, and scale their impact. Introduced by Accountant Segment Leader Ted Callahan, these accountant-specific innovations include a new Revenue Share Program, Books Review and Transaction Collaboration, the launch of a new QuickBooks Online (QBO) Windows app, Payroll certification, ProAdvisor® support, and more.
New “Revenue Share” program
Allowing accountants to grow revenue through work they’re already doing, the new program will expand ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing through the launch of Revenue Share. Instead of adding a client through QuickBooks Online Accountant (QBOA) and paying for their QBO account, Callahan outlined how this new program will soon let accountants get out of managing billing, provide clients with a discount, and compensate accountants for bringing clients on to the QBO platform.
Through QBOA, whenever an accountant starts a new QBO or QBO Payroll subscription, they’ll choose revenue share as the billing option. Clients pay Intuit each month, while the accountant receives 30% of the billed price for the next 12 months.
This option means accountants spend less time managing client billing, giving them more time to serve as strategic advisors to clients. Of course, should an accountant prefer to continue receiving the ongoing discount by paying for a client’s QBO account directly, the ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing program will continue to support that.
Intuit is preparing to open the Revenue Share feature up to accounting professionals. Anyone interested in being an early adopter of this program can sign up at this link.
