I was referring to the Desktop ProAdvisor program, not QBO!

Here's what the link that you provided states:

"The ProAdvisor Program offers benefits and resources that only get better as you grow. Simply sign up for QuickBooks Online Accountant to start turning progress into perks—from discounts to marketing tools to master training."


That's why I referred to QBO, because it's mentioned in the above quote.

Hi Don, 

The desktop version of QuickBooks (Accountant's edition) compared to the online version is a better choice in two ways. First of all, as you mentioned, there are no subscriptions or recurring fees. That saves a lot of money. 

Secondly, the desktop-version also offers more set-of accounting-based features as compared to QB Online. You can opt for QuickBooks Hosting, i.e., third-party cloud hosting service for your QB desktop if you ever require remote access or multi-user collaboration. Additionally, most of these cloud vendors also offer round the clock support to troubleshoot any IT-related issues. I found this detailed table that shows the comparison between QuickBooks Online, QB Desktop, and QB Hosting:

Do have a look. 

I hope my answer would be of some help to you. 

Thank you.
