2013 Review of AccountantsWorld Practice Relief

Best Firm Fit: Firms who require a web-based time and billing solution, as well as those who use the AccountantsWorld Power Practice suite of cloud-based applications for practitioners.


  • Tightly integrated into the other programs in the AccountantsWorld Power Practice system.
  • The product’s simple interface is accessible from almost any Web browser, and does not require installation of software applications or updates on client or server computers.
  • Client communications, including e-mail broadcasts, can be managed using Practice Relief, and real-time assistance can be provided using Accountant-Client Messaging, an instant messaging tool built into all AccountantsWorld applications.

Potential Limitations

  • Although Practice Relief will work as a standalone application, its integration with the other parts of the Power Practice System are more elegant than using the standalone application.

Summary and Pricing

Practice Relief is a good tool for managing traditional and virtual accounting firms, and allows partners and staff to work with clients anywhere. Although its reporting is not as comprehensive as some of the on-premises applications, the simple navigation structure and the ease with which users can enter data into the application make it simple for end users to use effectively.

AccountantsWorld Practice Relief is priced at $40 per month, or $395 per year for an unlimited number of users and clients.
