Ok, so ive given up on Nova Invoices and Estimates. I thought id gotten a great deal untill I reformated my computer and now it's totally bombed along with the backup, deleating all my financial records. So it's time for a new accounting software. Ive been searching around and I think quickbooks is the way to go. I was looking at Quickbooks 2004 premier contractors edition and it just looked struck me, I wanted to buy it so bad. But its close to $500 bucks, and I can't really justify buying a program not sure ill be satisfied with. So my question is this. What about older versions of quickbooks. I can get quickbooks pro 2001 for under $100. Is this a much better value then going with the new stuff? do anyone know if significant changes have been made? Im just trying to decide weather to buy an older or new version.
