Not sure what QB Desktop Version you can purchase for $190. Sounds like it may be used and previously licensed to someone else. I would stay away from that. A current Version of QB can be purchased at many Canadian Retailers like Staples, Best Buy and Costco. Be sure to do your homework: decide on the features you need. A client just purchased QB Pro 2018 with payroll at Costco for $699.00 plus tax. Once you buy and install on your computer, your product must be registered with Intuit.If your product includes Payroll, an annual fee will have to be paid to keep your payroll tax table current. If you will not be using Payroll, you will pay nothing more. You should note that your product will NEVER be updated from its original version.

That being said, it is possible to purchase Quickbooks directly from Intuit and pay the entire cost at the time of purchase.

BTW, here in the US we pay street price 199.99

Payroll is always extra but can be annual with no monthly per employee fee, that is how mine has always worked

Can't say with absolute certainty that it won't work, but l the huge price discrepancy sets off alarms. Why would Canadian retailers sell a product for $699 when the same product is available for $190? If it looks too good to be true, it almost always is.

Certainly Amazon is not that far out of line,$20 cheaper, especially when they are a bonafide approved and vetted retailer @impossible seems to have an issue with the giant retailer that delivers "from A to Zed"

YES, that is NO different than the link I provided for staples.ca and a price of $206.84 Cdn for QB Desktop Pro 2018 single user Canadian Version download. Where did I even once in this topic post a non-Canadian source?

That is all the questioner asked. "can I purchase QuickBooks desktop software without a monthly subscription?" It was not, can I purchase QB desktop WITH payroll without a subscription or multi-user or Premier or Enterprise. Or French version.

BTW, Costco.ca is $10 Cdn CHEAPER than Amazon.ca
