While QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise offers a robust set of features for inventory management, QuickBooks Online provides only very basic inventory management features. Therefore, it’s advisable to consider adopting external inventory management software to meet more advanced inventory needs.

How does QuickBooks account for inventory?

QuickBooks Pro and Premier editions use the average cost method to calculate your inventory costs. QuickBooks Online, on the other hand, utilizes the first-in-first-out (FIFO) method for inventory valuation. QuickBooks Enterprise is flexible and allows you to choose between either the average cost or FIFO method to align with your specific inventory management preferences.
