New Licensing for Quickbooks 2011


New Licensing for Quickbooks 2011

by Jay Valente

Quickbooks 2011 has a new twist in it’s licensing. Apparently, Intuit has deided not to offer a 5 seat license for the 2011 Pro version of Quickbooks. You are only allowed THREE seats. One thing to be wary of, the box says “Up to 3 users”, which means you are buying only a SINGLE LICENSE, not three. You can purchase seperatley, another two licenses, but they are not included.

Ok, so your next question is, what if I have a 5 seat license of 2010, and want to upgrade. Well feel free, but you lose two of your seats, as it only supports…3 users. If you want more, you can purchase Quickbooks 2011 Enterprise, which with a 5 seat licenses starts at about $3000. Ouch

As a side note, Quickbooks 2010 Pro will remain supported in terms of extra license purchases until September of 2011, so you may not want to “upgrade” just yet, and you may even decide to get those extra seats now.
