Why are we increasing prices?
As your small business evolves, we want QuickBooks to evolve with you.
QuickBooks helps small business owners like you save over $3,500 in tax savings annually1, and over 40 hours a month2 on average.
We're constantly finding new ways to make sure that your product meets your needs, based on your feedback. Price increases help us reinvest in improving the features you already have and introducing new tools that let you do more in less time. Plus, you can now connect more than 650 apps to QuickBooks, so you have more ways to increase its capabilities.
