Most of the accounting-type people question about why perform QuickBooks upgrade and is it necessary? Well, it depends…if you are using QuickBooks add-on services for credit cards, payroll, etc, then QuickBooks upgrade is necessary once every three years. The QuickBooks add-on services include paying a bill, online banking, card processing, merchant services processing and more. The developers of QuickBooks, Intuit follows a stern policy of supporting two prior versions or current versions of QuickBooks products. For example, the support for QuickBooks pro upgrade will only be valid until 2019.
If you are not using QuickBooks add-on service, then the timetable you choose for QuickBooks 2016 upgrade is completely optional. But keep in mind that you will not get any support for your QuickBooks version once it gets outdated.
Before you start the upgradation process , you first have to install the latest version of the QuickBooks desktop software. Then you can update the company file to the latest version.
In case, if you are the only user in the company file, then you are the QuickBooks administrator. If you are not the administrator and try to upgrade the company file, it will send you a notification stating that you have to log in as an administrator for performing the update.
If you upgrade QuickBooks company file over a network, then it will make the conversion unstable and puts the company file in a state where it becomes prone to getting damaged easily.
Once the upgradation is complete, it cannot be reversed and you cannot open it in the older version.
If you bought QuickBooks Pro in the last two months from Intuit, you can always call them. They will give you a new registration number or even a new download. The Premier version is typically same as of the Pro version with certain features disabled in Pro. You will have to remove the Pro version from your system before installing Premier version. Moreover, in case if you haven’t bought it from Intuit or it is more than two months, then you will have to buy Premier’s latest version.
You can download the QuickBooks desktop software externally from the QuickBooks website or via software.
