Nobody knew if Intuit was getting rid of QuickBooks for Mac; the whole ordeal has been up in the air since the last version available is Mac 2016. Since then, many people have been switching to the more recent QuickBooks Pro, Premier, Enterprise, or QuickBooks Online versions. To the surprise of many, Intuit will have a QuickBooks Mac 2019 available for its clients.
The new features of QuickBooks Mac 2019 can help you expand your business through the use of easy and simple functionality tools.
In comparison to the latest versions of QuickBooks, Mac offers limited capabilities, especially when it comes to the reporting module and the integration of apps to make the accounting, bookkeeping, and general office workflow efficient.
What are my options for Mac 2015?
You will be able to receive updates and add-on services like Online Banking, Online Backup, and live support through your QuickBooks Mac 2015 until May 31, 2018. Following that, Intuit will no longer support your software. At that time, it is probably best that you purchase Mac 2016 at a lower cost if you are going to use QuickBooks for your Mac for an extended time, and then buy the up-and-coming version.
What if I upgrade QuickBooks Desktop to Mac 2016?
When you upgrade to Mac 2016, Intuit will give you an additional year of access to add-on services, support, and software updates through May 31, 2019. You can also get the latest version at a significantly low discounted price. So if you update to Mac 2016, your software will be fully functional for another year.
Will I be able to upgrade from Mac 2015 to Mac 2019?
As technology changes, the programming and the back-end databases change as well. To keep up with the times, purchase Mac 2016 now which will be good for another three years.
Can I switch from Mac 2015 to QuickBooks Online or QuickBooks Pro, Premier or Enterprise?
Sure you can; there is nothing stopping you from making the switch. It is just best transfer your data, work with the new version, and test it out to decide if you like it. If you enjoyed your previous version, you will more than likely feel comfortable with the newer versions, but you might have to undergo a small learning curve (If you have come this far using QuickBooks, you can surely learn another version in your sleep!). As long as you remember the general factors of the software, the accounting principle is the same. Accessibility to features and functionalities vary from version to version.
Contact us we can help you with conversion from one software to another, integration and custom software development.
Note: If you are using Mac 2015, you will have to upgrade to Mac 2016. To use Mac 2019, you will have to buy and update your software to Mac 2016.
