Once again, in its revenue-driving practices, Intuit is rolling out the new Quick Books 2016 accounting software.
So you’ve got until the end of April 2016 to take care of upgrading.
If you are considering a purchase of Quick Books for the first time, knowing Intuit’s support policy on releases is good to know.
This is particularly important if you are using any third party add-on products.
I’m still not ready to entirely endorse the 2016 product overall (if you are currently using an older version), mainly because it is still so new.
*Receive the stated discounted price for this year’s version of the product selected, available for a limited time if purchased through Intuit. Offer may not be combined with any other Quick Books offers. **Starting from the date of enrollment, receive the stated discounted price for this year’s version of the product selected if purchased through Intuit.
Terms, conditions, pricing, features, service and support are subject to change without notice.
You won’t be buying something that you can use past three years without risking security and bug issues.
Revenue-driving, because they will now only support the latest three releases — Quick Books 2016, Quick Books 2015, and Quick Books 2014.
In May of each year, support goes away for lower releases.
Intuit has released the Quick Books 2016 R3 update for the U. This should start being released via automatic updates within a day or so – note that automatic updates are spread out over time, so some people will see it earlier than others. If you are using the 2016 product already, I recommend that you install this update soon (you might want to wait a week, just to be sure).
