QuickBooks 2013 is about to be released. I would expect QuickBooks 2013 to be released in the next week or so.
We have got used to releases from QuickBooks every 2 years, so it’s unusual for them to release QuickBooks 2013 so soon. In America QuickBooks release new versions every year. So hopefully the release of QuickBooks 2013 will bring the UK annual releases.
Normally I get involved in the beta testing of new versions of QuickBooks, but due various commitments this year I did not sign up for testing this time. So I can’t give you a sneak preview this time – sorry!
What can we expect in QuickBooks 2013
QuickBooks new releases are usually evolutionary rather than revolutionary, so I don’t usually recommend that people automatically update each time a new version is issued.
Should you update to QuickBooks 2013?
If you are using QuickBooks Payroll you will have to update when older versions no longer have payroll support. If you are still using QuickBooks 2008 or earlier you may find the improved VAT control features and better customer and supplier visiblity worth changing for.
As a QuickBooks Professional Advisor I will automatically get a new version of the software when it is released, so I will report back if there are any “must have” features in the new release.
If you have any questions, or if I can help with any QuickBooks issues, then please get in touch.
