QuickBooks to Stop Selling Desktop Software to New Subscribers

After July 31, 2024, QuickBooks will no longer sell new subscriptions to the following products:

  • QuickBooks Desktop Pro Plus
  • QuickBooks Desktop Premier Plus
  • QuickBooks Desktop Mac Plus
  • QuickBooks Desktop Enhanced Payroll

If you have a current subscription, you will be able to renew your subscription after July.  Existing subscribers are not affected.

If you are not on a current subscription, we suggest that you purchase a new QuickBooks Desktop subscription prior to July 31, 2024, or you can purchase a QuickBooks Online subscription and convert your desktop data to online. Keep in mind that the online program is different software and will not just look like an online version of your current software. It is easy to use, but there will potentially be a learning curve involved. QuickBooks offers a conversion tool you can utilize to convert your data to the online product.

Please see this QuickBooks Blog for further information:

Also, if you are utilizing a 2021 QuickBooks Desktop product, that software will be discontinued as of May 31, 2024. If you do not upgrade prior to May 31, access to the following QuickBooks services will be discontinued:

  • Live technical support and security updates
  • Desktop Payroll
  • Desktop Payments
  • Online Backup
  • Online Banking
  • Other similar services
