Important Quickbooks Desktop Product Changes!
Quickbooks recently announced that starting after July 31, 2024, Intuit will no longer sell NEW subscriptions of the following Desktop products in the US:
- QuickBooks Desktop Pro Plus
- QuickBooks Desktop Premier Plus
- QuickBooks Desktop Mac Plus
- QuickBooks Desktop Enhanced Payroll
Intuit is not changing:
- Existing Desktop Pro Plus, Premier Plus, Mac Plus, and Enhanced Payroll subscribers who may continue to renew their subscription after July 31, 2024. They will continue to provide security updates, product updates, and support for existing subscribers for the time being.
- All QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise subscriptions will also continue to be available for purchase for new subscribers after July 31, 2024.
Quickbooks is encouraging current Desktop clients to move to QuickBooks Online. We realize that some customers may prefer to stay on Desktop at this time which is still an option.
The non-subscription versions (2021 Version or older) of QuickBooks Desktop Pro, Premier, or Mac will still be functional however their versions will not be supported by Intuit.
If you have Pro Plus or Premier Plus and have been considering Desktop Payroll, we recommend purchasing a QuickBooks Enhanced Payroll subscription before July 31, 2024 or upgrade to QuickBooks Enterprise which includes integrated Payroll and can be purchased after July 31, 2024. Alternatively, QuickBooks Online Payroll is available to Desktop clients and is a standalone full-service payroll solution that also offers HR support, Health and 401K benefits.
If you already have a subscription version of Quickbooks (2022 or later), we recommend that you upgrade to the latest version of the software by July 31, 2024. QuickBooks Desktop 2024 includes the latest features and security updates. If you are on an active QuickBooks Desktop Plus subscription, you have access to QuickBooks Desktop 2024 with no additional charge as you simply have to install the update.
We wanted to share this note from QuickBooks as it pertains to their decision:
“We appreciate our customers loyalty to the Desktop platform over the years, and we will continue to support those customers on a Desktop subscription after July 31, 2024. However, we highly encourage you to prepare for the future by moving online. There are many benefits enabled by an online platform that can’t be realized through desktop software, including time savings, the flexibility to work from anywhere, and a customizable ecosystem of connected business solutions.
Thank you for your business and your continued support of QuickBooks”
