With new versions of QuickBooks accounting software hitting the market, you must be excited about all the unique functionalities that you’ll now have access to. However, to access these unique features, you must upgrade QuickBooks to the latest version. In this article, you’ll find more information on how to do the same.
The process will depend on the type of license you have. A subscription of QuickBooks accounting software will enable you to update the software easily, but if you have a one time license, then you’ll have to upgrade the license as well.
For QuickBooks Subscription
Follow the steps provided below to upgrade QuickBooks, if you have a subscription for the same:
- Launch QuickBooks
- If an upgrade is available, the software will prompt you automatically. Click on Upgrade Now
- Select the option to Keep old version on my computer, if you wish to use the older version in the future.
- The update process will complete automatically. Click on Open QuickBooks.
It can often take a lot of time for the process to complete, especially if you have a slow internet connection. This is why we recommend that you plug in your laptop and leave it on so that the update process completes in the background.
