Is it possible for a Mac user to use Quickbooks without going through Parallels Desktop? That is our current system and it is mediocre at best?
Thank you for your help
Hi there, @HLM1.
You may need to convert your company file to QuickBooks Desktop for Mac. Let me add some details about this and help you from there.
You don't need to go through Parallels Desktop to access QuickBooks from your Mac computer. You'll only need to download QuickBooks Desktop for Mac.
When you open your company file and is under windows, that's when you need to convert your file to QuickBooks for Mac. Note that if you have a payroll in your company file, it won't be included in the conversion.
Kindly follow these steps in converting your file from windows:
But if the file you're opening is not for windows, you'll only need to download the Mac version.

If you don't have any QuickBooks Desktop subscription, you'll be charged upon downloading your desired QuickBooks. To know more about this process, please read through this article: Mac is back.
However, if you need additional assistance with this procedure, I'd recommend getting in touch with our Customer Care Team. They'll be able to further discuss this matter with you and guide you with the steps.
This should get you pointed in the right track.
