    Quickbooks is great. I like it over Xero for a few reasons. (1) you can create sub-accounts within your books to separate different parts of your business. (2) their design is a little better IMO. (3) they also offer a cloud-based version, so make sure you pick that if it's important to you. If you go with the desktop version, the cloud version can't talk directly to it.
