A - All of the windows limitations in the windows version also apply to the mac version of Quickbooks.
B - Quickbooks Pro Mac limits in the number of users in the file at a time to 5 users.
C - Quickbooks Pro Mac cannot generate an accountants copy.
D - Quickbooks Pro Mac cannot handle multi-currency.
E - Quickbooks Pro Mac does not have built in payroll.  Must do online payroll at an extra expense.

G - Quickbooks Pro Mac does not have item price levels.
H - Quickbooks Pro Mac does not have online bill pay.
I  -  Quickbooks Pro Mac file is not cross platform.  The file must be converted to move between platforms.

The price to get around these issues is not cheap.  If your a windows user you have to change to Quickbooks Enterprise with optional advance inventory and full service plan ($999 + $999 + $950= $2948). If your a Mac user you must run windows in a vitural machine, plus all the windows expenses.

Quickbooks Pro is not a good solution for lots of small businesses.

In fact Quickbooks is no longer being made for Macintosh
