What is a QuickBooks Expert?

A QuickBooks expert, called ProAdvisor, provides training, insights, and other forms of accounting and bookkeeping support to QuickBooks users in order to drive small businesses to success. However, not all QuickBooks ProAdvisors are QuickBooks experts. Before engaging a ProAdvisor, further research is needed to ask about their background, what kind of services they offer, and whether or not they are QuickBooks-certified. QuickBooks ProAdvisors rates vary. Some ProAdvisors may have limited QuickBooks experience and have not passed the advanced QuickBooks certification exam. Other ProAdvisors are certified by QuickBooks, demonstrating proficiency with the product, and are accounting and bookkeeping professionals.

Advanced Certified QuickBooks experts, including Andrea at My Live Bookkeeper, belong to an elite group of the top 5% of 200,000 ProAdvisors1. QuickBooks advanced certification training doesn’t directly focus on accounting or bookkeeping principles. Advanced certification prepares the QuickBooks expert to tackle many of the real-world scenarios every business owner faces. The training for this expert certification requires a deep-dive into QuickBooks; each candidate spends hours studying and earning Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits. To maintain certification and QuickBooks expert status, one must pass the updated certification exam each year. This requirement ensures you are working with a QuickBooks expert who is up on the latest developments in the product and values continuing education. ProAdvisors are the first to be notified of all new product alerts and updates. You can find a certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor on Intuit’s Find a ProAdvisor website.

Your QuickBooks Expert

A QuickBooks expert helps you set-up and customize accounts, teaches you new features and workflows, and then continues to act as a consultant to help troubleshoot and answer any technical questions that may arise. QuickBooks-certified experts provide custom advice to each and every client in ways that go beyond accounting information. A QuickBooks ProAdvisor expert can help you make sense of the numbers on a report and give you insight that can protect and even help grow your business. They use the data available to them to get well-acquainted with all the financial details of your business. They use structures, patterns, and planning to provide you with guidance that you may not see or have time to find yourself.

In addition to using the data from your business, they compare your business with accounting trends. They can show you your rank in comparison to your industry and supply you with insights. Actionable suggestions and advice not only help you make better day-to-day decisions, but they help you meet your goals and aid in your growth. What’s more, QuickBooks experts are there as you make changes and can help you negotiate new landscapes. You can benefit from advice for right now rather than relying on hindsight.

Succeeding with a QuickBooks Expert

QuickBooks experts are invested in the businesses they work with and are not just a generic help desk. Almost everyone can benefit from an accountant or bookkeeper to help keep their finances straight. However, if you run a small business, then you need someone who can do more than balance the books—you need someone who has an understanding of and insight into what it means to be a small business.
