    @Guypatrick,
    Thank you for posting about your concern.
    To be clear, the only way to receive authorized support for Quicken products is to contact Quicken support directly.

    While you might use a Search Engine to find any number of web listings for alleged "Quicken Gurus, or Consultants" (or whatever they are calling themselves today), *NONE* of them are authorized by Quicken Inc. to provide Quicken product support.

    To use any of these outside, unauthorized, third-party alleged "gurus" is to do so only at your own hazard and peril.

    There have been reports of "gurus" allegedly charging eye-watering fees, and inflicting enormous damage on Quicken customer's data files and/or computers.

    Authorized Quicken support is included with your paid subscription; there is no additional fee for genuine Quicken support.

    Quicken does publish a huge number of articles (Quicken.com/support), and there is an Official Quicken Channel on YouTube.com for videos. As well, Community.Quicken.com is a peer-to-peer forum where occasionally Quicken employees may post commentary.

    @Guypatrick Quicken is a personal finance program, designed for individuals. Perhaps you're confusing it with Quickbooks, a product from another company that is used by businesses, bookkeepers and accountants?

    (Also, this site is basically a user-to-user help forum, so hurling insults at the company doesn't accomplish anything.)

    Quicken, Inc., the owners of Quicken, don't maintain such a list. 
    And the "accountant/bookkeepers" that you reference are probably using Quickbooks as Quicken is a PERSONAL financial manager ... not one oriented towards a business large enough to need "accountant/bookkeepers".
    The "Business" referenced in the name refers to Sole Proprietor type businesses ... such as the type that my late wife and I had (1 each) back in the  90's.
    Quicken doesn't support any Payroll functions, nor Inventory functions .... thus it is inappropriate for many small businesses also.

    So what does that imply?

    A person can have a business that generates $50 a year.
    A person can have two houses and rent one out.

    Any given piece of software is going to be designed for a given set of use cases.
    There is vast amount of different businesses and "rentals" there isn't a program or company in the world that covers all use cases.
