Our take on this....
QuickBooks Desktop Pro Plus, QuickBooks Desktop
Premier Plus or QuickBooks Desktop Enhanced Payroll customers
are not affected by this
announcement. So if you currently have any of the above QuickBooks
subscriptions, it will continue to function and you can continue to renew
your subscription after July 31, 2024. Intuit will continue to provide
security updates, product updates, and support for existing subscribers as
per the subscription terms. It is recommended that you install the latest
2024 version of your QuickBooks Desktop edition before July 31, 2024.
So while this seems alarming at first glance, you do
not have to be alarmed. Existing QuickBooks Desktop Plus subscriptions will
continue to function and be maintained via QuickBooks Updates. Intuit will
most likely encourage you to move to QuickBooks Online, but
you are not
required to do so. The QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise
editions seem to be the preferred Desktop options in the future and the only
ones available to new customers after July
PLEASE NOTE: The Quantum Project Manager only
works with QuickBooks Desktop, not QuickBooks Online. That may change in the
future, but for now if you use the QuickBooks integration features of the
Quantum Project Manager, stay on a QuickBooks Desktop edition and do not
move to QuickBooks Online.
If you use an older non-subscription based version of QuickBooks
Pro or Premier, particularly
QuickBooks 2021 or earlier with a QuickBooks payroll option, it will most
likely stop working in May 2024. So it is highly recommended that you get a
new subscription of QuickBooks Desktop and install it prior to then.
Click here to order it, but be sure to order and install it before July
31, 2024. If you have a current payroll subscription, that should transfer
to the new QuickBooks version without needing to repurchase it.
Lastly, if you are not currently using it and are
considering adding QuickBooks Desktop Enhanced
Payroll, do it before July 31, 2024. Be sure to NOT order the QuickBooks
Online payroll particulary if you intend to integrate it with the Quantum
