Here are some of the exciting features available in QuickBooks Online Advanced:

Visit our available pricing plans page to check out the latest prices for QuickBooks Online Advanced and take advantage of the available discounts.

Accountants will also have the opportunity to offer discounts to new and existing wholesale discount clients.

  1. Sign in to QuickBooks Online and select Settings.
  2. Select Subscriptions and billing.
  3. Select Upgrade your plan and follow the prompts.

As with all of our offers, if you add or remove services, your service fees will be adjusted accordingly. This includes changing the subscription type.

If you upgrade a wholesale-billed subscription that is still on package offer pricing to QuickBooks Online Advanced, the subscription price will change to the then-current wholesale billing list price of the new subscription (assuming you maintained the wholesale-billed status of the subscription).

When QuickBooks Online Advanced becomes available, the My Company SKU in QuickBooks Online Accountant will remain Plus. We do not yet have a firm timeline for Advanced to become the default SKU under My Books in QuickBooks Online Accountant. When that happens you’ll be notified so you can start leveraging QuickBooks Online Advanced for your own firm.

Due to technical limitations of TestDrive, this will not be possible; however, we are working on an alternative solution that will serve the same purpose as TestDrive, and should have an update on this in the next few months.

The UK version of QuickBooks Online Advanced shares the majority of core features as pioneered in the US and Canadian offering, and we’re working hard to bring the products as close to parity as regional differences allow. As always, we will continue to invest in features and enhancements to better serve our customers' needs.
