Update QuickBooks Versions

Update QuickBooks Versions
A new version of QuickBooks is released approximately every year. A new version adds new features and improvements. Intuit charges a fee for the purchase of a new version. Contact Intuit for current prices.
After the new version is installed, QuickBooks asks you whether your data file should be updated to the new version. By typing “YES”, QuickBooks automatically updates your file to the new version. Once the file is updated, you can no longer open the data file in the previous version.

Maintenance Releases
Intuit occasionally creates maintenance releases for an existing version of QuickBooks. A maintenance release usually corrects problems in QuickBooks not discovered until after distribution of a new version. Also, Intuit might add features that were not available at the time the version was distributed. Intuit does not charge a fee for maintenance releases.
