At QuickBooks, supporting the needs of small businesses owners and mid-market customers, especially in the face of shifting and changing markets, is our singular focus. We are adjusting QBO prices to align with the market and so we can continue to invest in the product.

I recently upgraded my subscription. Will I be subject to this price increase?

Yes, you will be subject to this price increase.

If you upgraded before 4th December 2022, you will see the new price increase on your 7th bill from your subscription date.

For example, subscriptions purchased on 15 November 2023 will see a price increase on 15 June, 2024.

Can I change my subscription plan?

With QuickBooks, you can change plans at any time. Simply go to your Account and settings in QuickBooks, select Billing & Subscription to upgrade/downgrade your plan. But please be aware that the new pricing will be applied to your subscription from 4th December 2022.

My subscription was cancelled and I'm past the 30 day re-subscribe period. Can I get the old pricing?

Unfortunately, no. You'll need to re-subscribe at the current market price.

I have a discounted subscription. Will the price changes affect me?

If you're currently on a promotional discount, your price is unaffected until the time that your promotion expires. When the promotion expires, the monthly subscription rate will be adjusted to match the new price increase.
