Is QuickBooks desktop being discontinued?
I sure have fielded a boatload of inquiries on this question over the last several months!
Given that, I thought it made sense to take a closer look at this question and try to clear up the mountain of misinformation out there.
END OF QUICKBOOKS SERVICE/SUPPORT VS. QUICKBOOKS DISCONTINUATION?
Let’s break down this conversation into smaller, yet very important components.
This will allow you to better understand the bigger picture…
- QuickBooks Service Discontinuation Policy – This is the Intuit policy that has been in place for decades now. This policy states that Intuit will stop support for their desktop products after three years. For example, support for QuickBooks 2020 will end on May 31, 2023. Support for QuickBooks 2021 will end on May 31, 2024 (assuming Intuit follows the same plan they have had for years).
