As you know, QuickBooks is one of the best accounting software programs available. Previously, the desktop Pro or Premier versions of QuickBooks only required a one-time purchase, which could be utilized for three years.
Starting with QuickBooks 2022, the desktop Pro or Premier versions of QuickBooks will require an annual subscription fee. For clients also subscribing to payroll, this annual fee would eliminate the need to upgrade every three years. QuickBooks 2022 will not run on any older computers that have a 32-bit system, as it will only run on a 64-bit system.
Clients who currently have the Enterprise version are already on an annual renewal, so this change does not apply.
QuickBooks 2021 with a one-time purchase and no annual subscription will be available for sale until December 10, 2021 (subscriptions to payroll will remain). After December 10, 2021 any new purchases or upgrades to QuickBooks Pro or Premier desktop versions will be on an annual subscription basis. Users currently on QuickBooks 2019 or 2020 and a payroll subscription should consider upgrading to 2021 before December 10 to take advantage of the lower cost one-time purchase option. If you are currently using an older version of QuickBooks, without a payroll subscription, an upgrade is not required at this time; however, if you wish to purchase a newer version, this may be your best opportunity to do so.
