Universal Accounting Complaints & Reviews

Universal Accounting - Utah, Salt Lake City, UTAH / collection procedures

DonRobW on Nov 19, 2018

Do not enter into any written contracts with this organization. They are meant to trap you into the program whether the program ends up being for you or not. Read it very well and maybe even show it to an attorney. If you end up being unsatisfied and you will most certainly will be, you are financially doomed. On another note there are several other programs that I have investigated that are much better and are much more ethical. Look into Andrew Argue's course, awesome and provides much better training specifically on marketing and obtaining clients. Also, check out Bookkeeper Launch by Ben Robinson. An absolutely awesome guy and he genuinely cares about his students.

Universal Accounting is great if you are already a bookkeeper and want to go out on your own. They give you great marketing tips to market yourself. For this cost though, I would just...

Universal Accounting - California, Modesto / Forcible selling


This company sells a bookkeeping program and claims to have an ironclad guarantee return policy. When I tried to return the program to them they threatened to return it back to me and charge me for the shipping. I am trying to return the books unopened and sealed. They are telling me that I have to complete the course and then return it and they will look over the material that I have completed and then decide if I can return it. I told them I no longer have a job and I cannot pay for this program. I looked over the materials and I am not happy with the product. They basically told me that I...
