Are you using QuickBooks 2013 with add-on services such as e-mailing invoices, processing credit cards or running payroll? If yes, you will need to upgrade your software prior to May 31, 2016 as they will not work after this date. Each year QuickBooks stops support of a desktop version for all types (Pro, Premier, Enterprise Solutions, Accountant Edition, and Mac) and 2013 is the version this year that will no longer be supported.
When you purchase QuickBooks 2016, you’ll received up to 60 minutes (can only use in one call) of technical support (which expires the earlier of 9/21/16 or 30 days after registration), and answers to frequently asked questions can be found at https://community.intuit.com/articles/1021133-frequently-asked-questions-about-installing-quickbooks.
In most cases, you can update QuickBooks and your company file in less than an hour. The larger your company file, the longer it takes. After you install QuickBooks 2016 or QuickBooks for Mac 2016, you will be prompted to register, which is required if you want to access any add-on services or live support while using QuickBooks 2016.
Add-on services that will no longer be supported include:
• Payroll Services
• 1099 E-filing
• Credit Card Processing
• Check Solution/Bill Pay/Online Billing
• Point of Sale
• Accountant’s File Transfer service
• Online Banking
• Third Party Products, and
• Technical Support
If you don’t use any of the add-on services, you will not be impacted unless you need technical support. If you do need to upgrade because of your use of add-on software, keep in mind you can purchase software at a number of places including office supply stores , warehouse clubs and Amazon as well as the Intuit website.
