Intuit is phasing out its accounting software, QuickBooks Desktop, and this will take effect from June 30, 2023. These changes will impact all UK customers.
Intuit stated that this decision is due to the Desktop platform increasing the risk of customers using outdated and non-compliant software, which could result in users missing important updates and failing to meet regulatory compliance.
Additionally, Intuit also plans to discontinue add-on services for QuickBooks Desktop after May 31, 2023.
This means you won’t be able to subscribe to live technical support or any other Intuit services that can be integrated with QuickBooks Desktop. Also, you won’t receive security patches and updates.
Intuit has advised that customers begin the process of transitioning to QuickBooks Online (QBO), which is still available.
While it may seem like a simple switch, businesses need to carefully consider whether QuickBooks Online meets all their requirements.
For example, there are many features and capabilities in QuickBooks Desktop that are not available in QuickBooks Online. Additionally, if you use third-party applications or services that integrate with QuickBooks Desktop, you may need to find compatible alternatives for QuickBooks Online.
