What is the difference between Clio and Quickbooks?


  • Quickbooks Desktop, Quickbooks Online, QBO
  • Is Clio an accounting software?


  • Clio Web App
  • Quickbooks Online

Additional Information:

As Clio is not a complete accounting package, we recommend that you use an accounting system to work alongside Clio.  


Quickbooks is an accounting software and Clio is a practice management software with invoicing  capabilities.  The only accounting that Clio handles is generating invoices, receiving payments on the invoices, and trust account activity.  These transactions can be synced to Qucikbooks Online one way from Clio, or manually exported from Clio and imported into the Qucikbooks Desktop application.
