QuickBooks Desktop 2019 released at the end of last year.
You may be wondering, why upgrade to QuickBooks Desktop 2019? If you are using an add-in service such as Payroll, you will need to upgrade every 3 years. If you are a Pro Plus, Premier Plus, or Enterprise 18.0 user, the upgrade process has been simplified; it’s now a two-click process to install QuickBooks Desktop 2019.
Here is a brief review of some new features awaiting you in QuickBooks Desktop 2019.
1. QuickBooks Desktop Mac version
This is available for the first time since 2016. (“YAY!” say the Mac users of the world.)
2. Invoice History
QuickBooks now provides easy-to-view tracking of the invoice process.
3. Transfer Credits Between Jobs
For businesses that have multiple jobs set up for customers, applying a credit received on one job to another job was previously a difficult procedure. After the upgrade, this is now a quick and easy process.
4. Link “Write Check” and “Pay Bills”
This upgrade resolves the issue of duplicate expenses and/or unpaid bills that occurs when a “Write Check” action is taken instead of “Pay Bills.”
5. Sick and Vacation Pay Tracking
This improvement allows for more transparency for both the employer and employee.
6. Inactive Inventory Items selection on Inventory Valuation Reports
This change assists you with reconciling the inventory value on your Inventory Valuation Summary Report to the inventory value on your Balance Sheet.
7. Improved IIF Imports
Before the upgrade, QuickBooks would notify you of Import errors, but it was difficult to determine what the errors were and how to fix them.
