Migrating quickbooks pro 2012 to pro 2021

I took over the treasurer's job at my club. The computer has QB Prod 2012 on it. I've purchased a new computer and QB Pro 2021 to get the operation up to the latest standards. I understand from reading on this forum and others that I need to update to QB desktop 2015 before I can  update to QB 2021. I've also heard that I can get a trial copy of 2015 to use for the upgrade. I'm trying to find out how I get the 2015 trial copy. Does anybody know?

Contact Support and ask for the trial license of QBD 2015 and 2018. Otherwise, contact us in private.

And, like a miracle, this post came to my rescue. I have a very similar situation with the same version of old desktop software.

 

This was a god-send.

 

Thanks!
