Deadline Approaching: All QuickBooks Desktop Required to Upgrade to Subscription Model by July 31

May 6, 2024

QuickBooks Desktop has a significant change approaching that requires all existing Desktop users to upgrade to their annual subscription model prior to July 31, 2024.   QuickBooks has been informing customers of its upcoming transition. This required change will significantly impact existing users of QuickBooks Desktop Pro, Premier, Mac, and Enterprise Solutions v21. Versions from 2021 and earlier, which were sold under a non-subscription, one-time license that expired after three years, will be discontinued entirely.  As a result, these versions will no longer receive updates or support.

Starting August 1, 2024, QuickBooks Enterprise will be the only Desktop version available for new purchases. Therefore, users of older Desktop versions must upgrade to the subscription model before the July 31st deadline. Failure to upgrade will result in the discontinuation of services like QuickBooks Desktop Payroll, Payments, Online Backup, and online banking,  system updates, security patches, and live support.  This could potentially disrupt your business operations. To ensure continuity in your business operations, we strongly advise you to begin planning your upgrade immediately.
