What is a so-called QuickBooks ProAdvisors (QPA)? This is a completely misleading title, as they are clearly not QuickBooks PROFESSIONAL Advisors. Intuit says its 42,000 uncertified and unproven QuickBooks ProAdvisors, who need know nothing about QuickBooks or ever use it, charge $16 – $20/hour more than self-designated QuickBooks consultants.
