Will the newer desktop versions be MTD (making tax digital - UK) compliant or are all users of the desktop version going to have to convert to online?

I don't know for certain, but Intuit will not be dropping...

I don't know for certain, but Intuit will not be dropping Desktop in a hurry. There are a lot of Desktop customers in the UK, some of whom run multiple companies on it. For Intuit not to implement MTD would generate a hell of a lot of angry customers, who between them probably make Desktop a viable product.

MTD does not come in until next April. So I would expect to see beta versions of QBD arriving for testers later this year.

Hi @JasonGrant , @nigel1 and @Mollcons , thanks for posting to the community as it's a very good question. 

 

QuickBooks desktop users will not have to convert to our online product as we'll be releasing a MTD compliant version of QuickBooks Desktop at the end of this month (March) providing you have QuickBooks 2019. 

 

Thanks

Hello Andy thanks for contacting us on Community.

 

QuickBooks Desktop 2019 is only available on a monthly subscription for small business users so that the software is fully updated and in line with current tax needs.

Very poor show QuickBooks, sold licenses for online and assured we won't be able to use desktop, now at the last minute it's you release a desktop version and we can't migrate the data back from online.  My clients and I are paying for these licenses you now say we don't need.  I would change to Sage because of this mis-selling!!!!! 

 

Very very disappointed and pretty angry.

Yes I do Talia, my Facebook page is Connor Accountants & Advisors with a green logo you can message me there, however I am pretty sure I am not the only customer who was lead to believe this was the case for 2 years now I have been migrating clients because a desktop version would not be available at a cost to me and my clients.

Hello,

 

MTD is only available on UK accounts - If you need to submit using MTD, you will need to take out a separate QuickBooks UK account and use the bridging tool.

 

Thanks,

I have just moved from QB2013 Desktop to online because of MTD, I have regretted the huge amount of time I have wasted. The online system is horrible.

So now the desktop version will be MTD compliant but it's a subscription service now making it hugely more expensive.
