The New QuickBooks Online Look is Here

The last time you sign into QuickBooks® Online (QBO) or QuickBooks Online Accountant (QBOA), you probably noticed that things look a little different.

The streamlined design makes working in QuickBooks even easier, and brings consistency across all QuickBooks products, including QBO, QBOA, QuickBooks Self-Employed, Payroll, Payments and others.

For example, we’ve reorganized things and simplified our color palette. These simple adjustments removed some distractions so that you can prioritize and get to work faster. To help you get your bearings, here’s some of the key changes you can expect.
