Intuit Will Sunset 2018 QuickBooks Desktop in May 2021
It is that time of the year again…Sunset!
Each year, as Intuit releases a new version of QuickBooks Desktop, they will also sunset an older version. Intuit supports the three most recent versions of QuickBooks and everything else is considered as “Sunset”. The sunsetting process for the 4th oldest edition starts in May so that gives us about 8 months where there are 4 versions supported.
For 2021, this means that after May 31, 2021, the 2018 versions of QuickBooks Desktop Pro, QuickBooks Desktop Premier, QuickBooks Accountant, and QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions V18 will no longer be supported. So if you are on the version 2018 and prior here is what the “Sunset” means to you:
- Access to add-on services such as Payroll Services, Online Backup, Online Banking, and Merchant Services.
- Users will no longer have access to live technical support for any of these QuickBooks Desktop 2018 products or other related services.
- Services associated with Intuit servers, including license verification may no longer be functional; Intuit will not guarantee that users can register products or retrieve license codes or id codes for these products after the May 31 sunset date.
Make sure that you are not caught off guard by having a product that will sunset. If you are unsure of the version of QuickBooks Desktop that you have, click F1 on your keyboard when you are in the product and the top line of the pop-up screen will tell you the version of QuickBooks you are using.
Verify your version and consider upgrading to the most recent version so that you are not losing any of the services that you are currently using with your QuickBooks accounting system.
