 Learn about the benefits of using desktop user applications for tax professionals, accountants, and bookkeepers.

The tax season is in full swing, and professional tax and accounting businesses are looking for the best ways to optimize their tax processes.


Many professionals are turning to desktop user applications to help them manage their workload. Desktop apps offer a number of benefits that cloud-based apps just can't match.


In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of using desktop user applications for professional tax services. Stay tuned!

Not internet reliant

Desktop applications are installed on your computer, so you can work offline if needed. This is perfect for businesses that don't always have an Internet connection or who want to be able to work even when the power goes out.


Having a vital app work locally and not be reliant on the internet can be the difference between a business being able to function or not.


Desktop applications often start up faster than their web-based counterparts because they don't have to load all of their data from the Internet every time they're opened. This can be a major time-saver, especially if you use apps that require a lot of data, like video editing or graphics programs.

More features

Desktop user applications usually have more features than web-based ones because they're not limited by browser compatibility issues. This means that developers can include anything they want in a desktop app without having to worry about whether or not it will work in all browsers.


Qboxs offer a wide range of features that are designed to make tax professionals' lives easier, including the ability to share files and collaborate with multiple users and share Quickbook attachments.

Better performance

Web-based applications can be slow and sluggish, especially if you have a slow Internet connection. Desktop user applications are usually much faster because they don't have to load data from the Internet every time you use them.

Easier to use

Desktop user applications are generally easier to use than web-based ones because they're designed specifically for one operating system. This means that developers can take advantage of all the features of an operating system when they design a desktop app.

Better security

One of the main reasons why some businesses prefer desktop apps is because they offer more control when it comes to data security and privacy.


With a cloud-based solution, your data is stored off-site on servers that you may not have any direct access to. This can be a concern for businesses that handle sensitive information or want to maintain complete control over their data.


With Qbox, your data is stored securely on Amazon AWS data storage. This gives you complete control over who has access to it and how it’s used. Qbox also makes use of finance-level 256-bit SSL encrypted links for data in transit to and from your desktop.


So if security and privacy are a concern for your business, then a desktop app may be the right solution for you.
