Intuit has announced that it will stop selling QuickBooks Desktop such as Pro / Premier products to new subscribers after July 31, 2024.

What does it mean?

QuickBooks Desktop has long been recognized for its features and user-friendly interface. However, with the evolving landscape of cloud-based solutions and the increasing demand for online accessibility, the decision to discontinue the product sales for new subscribers suggests a deliberate effort to move users towards cloud-based solutions.

For existing desktop users, the software will continue to be supported, with updates and maintenance. They may also continue to renew their subscriptions after the announced date.

What would happen to QuickBooks Desktop?

QuickBooks Desktop will be moving to subscription model. Users are advised to upgrade to newer version or switch to QuickBooks Online.

To upgrade to newer version, simply purchase a new license before end of July 2024. Upgrading will ensure you continue receiving support and access to the latest features and updates.

Alternatively, you can switch to QuickBooks Online, which is recommended as the best option if you’re looking for a more future-fit and affordable solution. QuickBooks Online is a cloud-based solution that offers anytime, anywhere access from any location with an internet connection.

With QuickBooks Online, you’ll have access to all the features you love in QuickBooks Desktop, as well as new and improved features, and a clear view of your business landscape.

Switching to QuickBooks Online is a good option as it provides better accessibility and collaboration.

It’s important to understand that software is not owned by an end-user, but rather licensed to the end-user by the copyright owner through an End-User License Agreement, often referred to as the EULA. The EULA contains the terms and conditions for using the software. Software publishers maintain ownership of the software they create, and control the right to duplicate and distribute their products.

Different forms of software piracy:

  • Counterfeiting, or the illegal copying, sale, and distribution of copyrighted software and trying to pass it off as the original product.
  • End-user piracy involves duplicating software by an unauthorized individual within the software company. This type of piracy may include using a single license for multiple installations, using upgrades from an old unlicensed copy, copying programs to use or distribute them, or getting software that requires a special permit without having it.
  • Internet piracy is probably the most popular, and it entails copying a program and uploading it for anyone to download. This is very popular in torrenting sites, for instance, and users become liable for copyright theft.
  • Hard-disk loading involves computer-selling businesses installing illegal copies of software on their products to make them more attractive to potential buyers.
  • Client-server piracy overuse involves overusing a central copy of a program in a network. Remember: even central copies need multiple users’ licenses to run them.

Dangers of purchasing illegal or pirated copies of QuickBooks Enterprise Accounting software:

Intuit will eventually discover this and disable your license.

If QuickBooks software is going to change hands from one business owner to another, Intuit will ask for the seller to complete a Transfer of Ownership form. They will review the details to determine whether a transfer of the license to the purchaser will be approved or denied. This the only way that an Intuit license can be transferred.

Computerized Accounting System (CAS) refers to the integration of different component systems to produce computerized books of accounts and computer-generated accounting records and documents.

To many local business owners, regulatory compliance is a tedious and tiresome affair. Some are even tempted to put aside their compliance matters in favor of other concerns, like sales, and only review their regulatory compliance at the very last minute.

If you’re currently modernizing your company with a computerized accounting system, or CAS, there’s a pressing need to ensure that you are BIR CAS compliant. Registering your Computerized Accounting System and updating your procedures for full BIR compliance will save you from steep penalties. A good compliance record will also set a precedent for a good relationship with the tax collection agency.

Who Are The Businesses Required To Use a Computerized Accounting System?
Revenue Memorandum Order, requires all large business or taxpayers to upgrade to Computerized Accounting System and register their chosen system at the BIR. But the right to use a Computerized Accounting System isn’t exclusive to these large companies. Small and Medium-Sized businesses can also choose to adopt Computerized Accounting System as long as they follow the same compliance requirements.

What Are The Components Should Your Computerized Accounting System Contain?
As per Revenue Memorandum Order, the BIR requires Computerized Accounting System to contain the following components:

> A general journal, accompanied by other subsidiary records
> Accounting records such as books for sales, books for purchases, books for inventory, books for accounts payable, books for accounts receivable, payroll ledgers, and subsidiary ledgers
> Application systems that are involved in generating the subsidiary ledger and are responsible for official accounting documents, such as invoices, cash vouchers, official receipts, journal vouchers, sales tickets, and billing statements
> Application systems that are responsible for generating reports that are specifically required by the BIR

What are the Documentary Requirements for Registering Your CAS?
You should prepare the following documentary requirements for your BIR Computerized Accounting System registration:

> A duly accomplished BIR Form 1900, which is the official application form for BIR CAS registration
> Documents to validate the company’s profile such as its BIR Certificate of Registration, previously issued BIR permits, map with the business headquarters location, and a list of branches that will use the CAS
> For applications for system enhancements or modifications, you’ll need to pass a copy of your previous BIR Permit to Adopt CAS and a letter to the agency detailing the modification or enhancement to your CAS.

These requirements may be subject to change in the future so be sure to double check with an authorized representative of the BIR before you finalize your registration.
