2024: The Year to Upgrade Your Accounting Technology

By now you’ve probably heard that Intuit QuickBooks will be halting new subscriptions for several popular products this summer. As of July 31, 2024, new subscriptions in the United States will no longer be sold for QuickBooks Desktop Pro Plus, Premier Plus, Mac Plus, or Enhanced Payroll.

Existing QuickBooks Desktop users and Enterprise subscribers will continue to receive support, product updates, and security updates. However, that support will only last for a limited amount of time. What should you do?

Upgrading from QuickBooks Desktop

Now is the time to make the leap and convert to QuickBooks Online or Xero. Switching to online software affords business owners the following benefits:

Freedom and flexibility. Your data is accessible 24/7 from any workstation or mobile device, which also enables real-time collaboration with others.

Security and an up-to-date interface. You are always working in the latest version of the software and your sensitive data is always backed up.

Automation and productivity tools. Both software options have task automation capabilities and integration with hundreds of third-party apps.
