Intuit QuickBooks Accountant Council 2021-2023 applications now open
Intuit® is actively seeking accounting professionals who are tech forward and growth minded to participate in the Intuit QuickBooks® Accountant Council. Interested applicants should be excited to roll up their sleeves and provide insights and feedback on future product development across the QuickBooks platform. We’re accepting applications through Friday, April 30, 2021. Apply here.
Intuit was founded on the principle of listening to our customers. As one of the many ways we interact with customers about their needs, the Accountant Council helps us have an open collaboration with accountants, bookkeepers, consultants, and advisors who are strategic thinkers, effective technology users, and innovative process implementers.
The objectives of Council are to:
- Collaborate on future strategy, product development, programs, and services for Intuit’s small business, self-employed, accountant, and bookkeeper customers and partners.
- Create a forum where Intuit proactively and intently listens to the voice of accounting professionals to better understand their point of view – and the point of view of their customers – on the issues and trends impacting small businesses and the future of the accounting profession.
We’re looking for accountants, bookkeepers, QuickBooks consultants, and trusted advisors who use and/or recommend Intuit products and services, and represent a wide range of geographic locations across the United States. Firms of all sizes, and various types of businesses (accounting, consulting, installation and setup, for example), professional designations, verticals, and depth of product knowledge, are welcome to apply. Applicants believe in the promise of cloud technology and a firm’s transition into value pricing and advisory. Members must be in public practice. Council members may not participate on any competitor advisory board or be employed by Intuit.
As a Council member, under a non-disclosure agreement, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with Intuit’s senior level executives, product managers and marketers about future strategy and upcoming product/service offerings. You will also have the opportunity to network and learn best practices from your Council member colleagues from across the country. New Council members will join a class of eight peers that have just completed the first of their two-year term.
Traditionally, the Accountant Council meets at an Intuit location two times annually (summer and winter), and up to another two to four times a year virtually (conference phone and/or web cast). With a bias for safety during COVID-19, we may elect to replace in-person meeting(s) as needed with more virtual gatherings.
Intuit pays Council members an honorarium of $1,000 per full meeting day, and covers the cost of travel for in-person meetings. Council meetings generally occur over the course of two days.

“Being on council has afforded me many opportunities and experiences that are irreplaceable. I have connected with other like-minded professionals that have helped me grow, both professionally and personally. Working with Intuit has made me realize how much the company cares about helping small business owners reach their dreams while continuing to improve a product that has changed my life and business for the better. We all succeed by working together to help others doing something we all love to do.” – Joshua Standley, EA, ABA, RTP, DKK Accounting
“Participating in the council provided me with some pretty awesome insight into how Intuit works and what they focus on as they build out their product. It provided me with a great opportunity to collaborate with some amazing professionals I would have never had a chance to connect with before. The experience has been invaluable for our firm, as we have leaned into partnerships with our App Ecosystem further, as well as leveraged our growing firm to expand into new opportunities we would have never thought possible.” – Dan Luthi, chief operating officer at Ignite Spot Accounting Services.
“I heard someone from a previous group say that ‘Serving on Council was life changing.’ At first, I thought that was a bold statement, but after serving my term I’d have to agree. Work is a large part of my life. As a company owner, how could it not be? Serving on Council changed the way our accounting agency does business. The exposure to the engineers behind the software, the opportunity to collaborate on new projects, and the introduction to the stellar individuals in the Intuit network has been career-enhancing, life-changing. I’m very thankful for the opportunity.” – Amy Walker, CPA, Founder and CEO of Walker Agency, LLC
