When Should I Get QuickBooks Premier 2018?
Question: When is the best time to buy QuickBooks Premier 2018?
Answer: Premier 2018 was released in September 2017. So far, the reports are good. It works well, and bugs have been few. However, conventional QuickBooks wisdom is to wait until January to avoid as many of the inevitable early glitches, updates and fixes as possible.
Premier 2018 offers some new features:
1. It can accommodate up to three monitors.
2. A past due stamp can be placed on invoices.
3. A full line can be copied and pasted on a sales order, purchase order or invoice, which will be handy when creating an order with duplicate lines—such as apparel where you might want a separate line for each size or color.
4. There is now a Cash/Accrual toggle on report screens. You will not need to go into the Customize Report section to do this.
