Depending on your needs and requirements, both Quicken and QuickBooks aim at helping you to manage your finances and plan for unexpected financial situations. However, if you compare them on individual categories, you might come across a few differences as well. For example: If we take the context of balance sheet then unlike Quicken, QuickBooks provides a few extra accounts, depending on the industry you select when creating your business.
On the other hand, Quicken does provide functionality to add items to invoices, but it doesn’t provide the per-item tracking that QuickBooks offers. So, users of Quicken sooner or later want to shift to QuickBooks so that they can avail extra benefits.
