Meanwhile, Intuit is also introducing the QuickBooks Desktop Mac Plus subscription and it will leave older computers behind as it moves to 64-bit versions of the software from 32-bit
Leading the slew of moves is the move to all subscription. With the 2022 launch, scheduled for October 12, Intuit will sell its QB Pro and Premier titles as Pro Plus and Premier Plus via subscription instead of via licenses.
One-time purchases of QB Desktop 2021 will be available until December 10 with support for payroll, payments, bank feeds, security patches and feature updates ending then. The date also applies to the end of license sales for QB Desktop Accountant Edition.
Intuit notes subscriptions will provide access to the latest features, security patches and support for third-party operating system changes. Unlimited customer support and data recovery is included in the subscription pricing, along with support for QB Mobile.
Mac Plus, also sold only by subscription, will be available to accounting professionals as ProAdvisor Enterprise Software Bundle.
