Important Update About QuickBooks Desktop


Is your company using QuickBooks Desktop software?

Intuit, the parent company of QuickBooks, has recently announced a stop-sell of all QuickBooks Desktop products. This means you must upgrade your software to the current version of QuickBooks Desktop before the stop-sell date in September or consider switching to QuickBooks Online. Discontinuation of QuickBooks Desktop is a real possibility in the near future.

As your trusted business advisors, our primary objective is to help you stay up-to-date with the latest accounting software and technologies that can help streamline and modernize your business. We strongly recommend that clients who are currently using QuickBooks Desktop consider switching to QuickBooks Online as soon as possible.


Why switch to QuickBooks Online?

There are several compelling reasons why switching to QuickBooks Online (QBO) is a smart decision for your business:

  1. Accessibility: QuickBooks Online can be accessed anywhere, anytime via desktop, laptop, or mobile device. This means that your financial data can be monitored in real-time, making it easier to manage your finances.
  2. Collaboration: QuickBooks Online allows multiple users to access the accounting data simultaneously, making collaboration with your team members much easier and faster.
  3. Automatic Data Backup: Data backup can be costly and time-consuming for businesses, but with QBO, it’s automatic. You no longer need to worry about losing your accounting data.
  4. Scalability: QuickBooks Online is scalable, meaning it can grow with your business. As your business expands, you can easily upgrade to the next tier of QuickBooks to accommodate your growing needs.
  5. Cost-Effective: QuickBooks Desktop pricing has changed to an annual subscription with a per-user fee, making it much more competitive with QuickBooks Online. Multiple users are included as part of the QuickBooks Online subscription.
  6. Time-Saving Automation: Ability to set up recurring tasks, customize bank connections, and more.
  7. Security Done for You: Count on the latest security updates and have peace of mind knowing your data is protected.
