Can I purchase QuickBooks desktop software without a monthly subscription?

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.

Poster NEVER mentioned payroll and what about this spells used to You? <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B074K349MR/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1522021005&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY...>

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.

One time purchase QB Pro 2018 direct from Intuit $349.99

Staples $206.84 https://www.staples.ca/quickbooks+2018/directory_quickbooks+2018_20051_1_20001?autocompletesearchkey...

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

Hi Mody,

 

Knowing your business needs is imperative to pick out the best version of QuickBooks Desktop for your company. I can help go over more about the features of QuickBooks Desktop with you.

 

One of the great things about QuickBooks Desktop is how it syncs with your windows language settings. What this means is that whatever language you have your windows operating system set to is the language QuickBooks uses. To change the region or language of your windows you can do so by following the steps in this article. It's not recommended to get QuickBooks Enterprise 2011 as it's not a supported version and we can not guarantee it would work when trying to install it. 

 

If you're looking into getting QuickBooks Enterprise for your business it's currently only available on a subscription. You can find out more about a subscription and contact information here.

 

Hope this helped
