When Should I Upgrade to QuickBooks Premier 2022?
Ask the Accountant…
Question: I have QuickBooks Premier 2019. I keep getting pop-ups telling me to upgrade to Premier 2022. I know I need to upgrade to 2022, and that it’s a subscription. Should I just go ahead and do it?
Answer: Your QB Premier 2019 will be upgraded at no additional charge through May 2022. The subscription that you will be purchasing is an annual one. If you purchase it in March 2022, you will need to pay for Premier 2023 in March 2023. I would not upgrade to Premier 2022 until the end of May when your Premier 2019 updates end. This will provide a couple of months extra before having to pay.
This is also true for distributors who have QB Premier 2020 or 2021 that were purchased on a one-time basis. I would wait until May 2023 to update QB Premier 2020 and wait until May 2024 to update QB Premier 2021.
