Is quicken now interchangeable between mac & windows?

I have been asked to take a treasurer position for a non-profit youth sports club. I am conversationally literate in this type of thing, but am no means an accountant or controller type.

It is mostly accepting registration fees, managing expenses, paying for tournaments, paying for ice time and other misc stuff. A monthly briefing to the board about financial conditions.

My biggest issue is the need for a windows laptop. Sorry, but I just wont do it.

My question is.......they have used quicken for some years. Is this now the same file & format whether on a pc or mac? Is there a cloud version that is not OS sensitive?

I left Quicken years ago. I could maybe handle it if it were on my mac or in the cloud, but I will not lug around a second laptop, especially if it has to be a windows.

I feel your pain, JPK. I do same thing for a non profit education service, and it is all on Excel! I'm trying to get it into an accounting program, using Quicken now. I don't think Mac and Windows version are interchangeable. Someone will soon let us know.
