Most QuickBooks 2010 users have received several warnings when using their QuickBooks products that access to add-on services will be discontinued on May 31, 2013. This applies to all QuickBooks versions and includes other Intuit products such as Point of Sale 8.0 & 9.0.

Note: QuickBooks Email – If you choose not to upgrade you can continue to email sales receipts, credit memos, purchase orders, reports, and forms directly from QuickBooks 2010 using Outlook, or Windows Mail account. You may also print your forms and reports to .pdf files and email them using your email account. (To learn how to set up your email service in QuickBooks click here).

If you are not using any of the add-on services and or will not need any technical support, your QuickBooks 2010 product will continue to work for you. If, however, you don’t need to upgrade but would like to find out the difference between the 2010 and 2013 product, please contact our office to speak with one of our QuickBooks ProAdvisors. For those businesses still using QuickBooks 2010 and one or more of the above add-on services, one of our QuickBooks consultants would be more than happy to assist you with your upgrade and help you find the best price on your software.
