  • Information technology services

Applying for the QuickBooks ProAdvisor Program
Becoming a ProAdvisor is as simple as buying a membership. After you apply, Intuit will contact you to request that you provide us with verification of your professional status. This can be as simple as faxing or emailing us a copy of your letterhead or business card.

What if my practice has multiple partners or employees? Does my membership cover everyone?

For the QuickBooks Cloud ProAdvisor Program:
Membership to the the Cloud ProAdvisor Program is on an individual basis. The QuickBooks Online Certification and all benefits associated with that certification, is tied to the individual who underwent the certification process and may not be transferred to another individual.

For the QuickBooks ProAdvisor Program:
The annual fee for the ProAdvisor program covers membership for one registered individual. QuickBooks software itself is subject to the QuickBooks Software License Agreement and requires one software license for each user within your practice. Software licenses included in the ProAdvisor membership can only be used for partners or employees of your practice. If your company or firm has multiple offices, you will require a membership for each location. Also, certification in the Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor Program extends only to individuals who successfully complete the exam.

How can I pay for my membership?

To make membership renewal easier, all ProAdvisor Program memberships are on subscription plans. The two options available are monthly and annual subscriptions.
Monthly subscription: The total cost for the monthly membership is the same as the annual auto-renewal membership; you will be billed monthly for 1/12th of the total cost. After a year, your membership will be renewed, and you'll continue to be billed automatically.
Annual subscription: With this membership, you'll pay for one year of the ProAdvisor program upfront. After a year, your membership will be renewed and you'll be billed automatically - never worry again that your membership may be expiring soon.
If you wish to switch your membership option or cancel your membership at any time, call 1-800-452-9970 to make arrangements with a service representative.

How can I renew my membership?

You don't need to. All ProAdvisor memberships are on automatic subscriptions. So you don't need to worry about ever missing a payment or not being on the most recent version of the software.

Can I get more information on QuickBooks training and certification?

Certification is available for ProAdvisors looking for advanced training or the the opportunity to distinguish themselves as QuickBooks experts.
