If this is something you are interested in, keep reading to learn more about setting up and using QuickBooks® Remote Access.
Does My QuickBooks® Come With Remote Access
There are some versions of QuickBooks® that come with Remove Access at no additional charge. If your version does not have this feature, however, you can add it for the low price of $3.95/month, which is a small price to pay for the ability to use QuickBooks® from multiple devices. So, which versions have Remote Access built in? Currently, QuickBooks® Pro, QuickBooks® Premier and QuickBooks® Enterprise all come with this highly useful feature at no additional cost.
Setting Up QuickBooks® Remote Access
When you are ready to get started, go ahead and launch your QuickBooks® application. Depending on the specific version of QuickBooks® you are running, you will either need to select “Accountant” followed by “Remote Access” or “File” followed by “Remote Access.” From here, you simply need to follow the directions on choosing a name, password, etc. When you are done, you should now be able to access all QuickBooks®-related programs.
It’s important to note that both you and the client computer must have an active internet connection in order for QuickBooks® Remote Access to work. If only one of these computers has an internet connection, there’s simply no way for the connection to occur. If you haven’t done so already, check to make sure there’s an active internet connection with both computers. You can then attempt to log into the client computer using the web address previously mentioned. Once you’ve entered in the login information, it will send a request to the client computer. Once the request is granted, you’ll then be able to access and modify files within the QuickBooks® account.
Hopefully, this will give you a better understanding on setting up and using Quickbooks Remote Access. It’s a highly useful feature that many people seem to overlook. However, nearly everyone can benefit from Quickbooks Remote Access, so make sure it’s setup on your account.
