Intuit has introduced a contest that will give QuickBooks Premier Accountant 2009 and 2010 customers the opportunity to win $1,000 by using the Client Data Review feature.

Once the test of Client Data Review is complete, fill out the entry form and upload the clean file. If a friend or colleague referred you to the sweepstakes, enter their name, too, to give them the chance to also win $1,000.

The Client Data Review Challenge starts Jan. 4 and concludes on Feb. 12, 2010. Two winning entry forms will be drawn at random on Feb. 15 and another two on Feb. 29, 2010.

Client Data Review was first introduced in QuickBooks Premier Accountant 2009 as a tool to help accounting professionals save up to four hours per client file clean-up. Similar to spell-check for clients' QuickBooks files, Client Data Review helps find and fix client data entry errors.

Popular Client Data Review features in 2009 included the ability to troubleshoot prior account balances, fix accounts receivable and payable and fix incorrectly paid payroll liabilities. The top capabilities added to Client Data Review in 2010 are inventory troubleshooting, batch write-off of invoices, batch reclassifying of transactions, and the ability to find and fix incorrectly recorded sales tax.

During the Client Data Review Challenge, Intuit is also offering the following special pricing on its professional accounting QuickBooks product and services:

* For $299.95, accounting professionals can purchase a bundled package of QuickBooks Premier Accountant 2010, Intuit Statement Writer, three months of support, and one data conversion.
