***Please note that this chart does not include QuickBooks Point of Sale and is limited to QuickBooks Pro, Premier, Online and Enterprise.***

*Users may be for additional cost.

**Windows editions can be opened on Mac usually by using a tool such as Parallels or Bootcamp, or adding ad hoc hosting. I’d test this before buying.

***Pricing does not include add-ons such as QuickBooks Payments, GoPayment, Payroll, Field Services or other add ons.

****Non-subscription versions generally include 3 years of maintenance updates and then are no longer supported. Even though they are a one time purchase, we recommend upgrading every 1-2 years.
