Are you on Sierra?  QuickBooks Mac 2015 R8 and QuickBooks Mac 2016 both have reports of crashes on Sierra.  In the  case of 2015 R8 the code has been out for over a year on El Cap without problems.  We of course tested against Sierra and saw no problems but there are reports in the field and we are trying to figure out how to reproduce them to fix them.

There will not be anymore new versions of Quickbooks Desktop for Mac.  Same mistake intuit made before. (I think it was 1998).

Notice sent by email on March 1, 2017

As our valued accountant partner, we are providing you with notification that we will not be releasing a new version of QuickBooks Desktop for Mac, which is included as part of your ProAdvisor Premium membership. QuickBooks Desktop for Mac 2016 will be the last version available and will be supported until May 31, 2019. This does not affect the 2018 Windows versions of QuickBooks Desktop Pro and Premier.

Your QuickBooks Desktop for Mac small business customers will receive a separate communication notifying them of this news in the coming weeks. The communication will also include information about how to switch to QuickBooks Online. It’s easy for customers to import QuickBooks desktop software data so they don’t have to start from scratch, and we offer support for customers making the switch to QuickBooks Online.

You don't need to switch to QB Online; you can run Parallels or VM Ware or other simulated Windows OS to run any Windows version of QB, which means Mac users can now get Premier functionality.

While there may be no plans for a paid update to QuickBooks Mac we are still developing features for it and will release an upgrade for free to the 2016 version (like we did last September).

Why would a Mac user want to pay for emulation software (Parallels, etc.) which also requires a legal copy of windows.  Run a full version of windows, with all the problems windows has (Virus, spyware and MS updates that crash the machines) if they don't have to.

Intuit must feel it the Mac market is no longer worth of yearly releases, which they charge an upgrade price for each year.  I think intuit is trying to force Mac users into the online version.

I think intuit will lose a lot of its Mac clients to AccountEdge which is cross platform, and is pretty much equal to Quickbooks Enterprise in features and sells for the price of Quickbooks Pro

@garyacraig The Mac program has never come in "editions" or Flavors. You never had Pro or Premier. Further, Intuit is dropping QB for Mac in 2019. If you want to stay with QB, then you would run a Windows emulation. Intuit wants us peer users to move to QB Online; that was never a good tool for me or my clients.

Quick question. I'm currently running the 2015 version of QuickBooks on my Mac. Ever since the Sierra release last Fall, it has not run efficiently, and the program is filled with bugs. I've grown quite tired of the annoyances. I see a thread here that there won't be a 2017 version for Mac. Is that correct? If so, will my data (I have invoices from 2008 - today, as well as my invoice templates, etc) transfer to the 2017 Windows version? Is there a discount to purchase the 2017 Windows version, since I am a current QuickBooks customer?
