QB support for Big Sur

Hello there, @tankerdude.


Currently, there's no specific date on when the updates will be released so that QB Mac 2020 will be compatible with macOS Big Sure. In the meantime, here are the system requirements for QB Mac 2020:

  • At least macOS 10.14 (Mohave); supported by macOS 10.14 (Mojave).
  • Intel processor, Core 2 Duo or higher.
  • Multi-user Server: Intel Core 2 Duo or higher processor to run a server.
  • 2 GB RAM (4 GB RAM recommended).
  • 250 MB of available disk space.
  • CD/DVD drive or Internet connection for downloaded installation.
  • Printer: 100% Macintosh-compatible printer, if you plan to print invoices, checks, deposit slips, lists, purchase orders, mailing labels, reports, or graphs.
  • Checks: Use Intuit Checks if you plan to print checks. Canadian Image Ready Checks are not supported.
  • Product registration required.

On the other hand, you can follow these steps to check for any QuickBooks updates directly from the application or from the product updates page.

  1. Open the QuickBooks drop-down menu.
  2. Select Check for QuickBooks Updates.
  3. On the prompt window, click Install Update.
  4. Hit Install and Relaunch.

Lastly, you can refer to this article to see more information about the unsupported versions of QuickBooks Desktop for Mac
