Detail analysis

In fiscal 1H18, small business and self-employed revenue came in at ~$1.4 billion, marking an 18% rise YoY (year-over-year). In fiscal 2Q18, it grew 19% YoY to $736 million.

The unit’s revenue growth was supported by robust improvement in Intuit’s QuickBooks Online Accounting business, which grew 58% YoY to $163 million. In the last five quarters, it has grown at a compound annual rate of 12%.

Its online ecosystem grew 40% YoY to $280 million, growing at a compound annual rate of 9% in the last five quarters. Intuit expects its online ecosystem revenue to grow more than 30% YoY in fiscal 3Q18.
