Microsoft’s new small business accounting software will weigh in at $149 a pop after rebate. And the SBA/Office combo will list for $569, or $399 as an upgrade, after rebates.
Pricing will be among the news to be announced Wedneday at Microsoft’s Business Summit at its Redmond, Wash. campus.
The standalone “Microsoft Office Small Business Accounting 2006″ will list for $179 but ship with a $30 mail-in coupon.
Microsoft has thus far only said that the standalone version, with which it plans to wage war (again) with Intuit’s QuickBooks, would be “under $200.”
QuickBooks Basic lists for $199.95 or $99.95 as an upgrade. The popular QuickBooks Pro is about $100 more but with rebates can be had for about $180.
