when will QB Pro Plus desktop 2020 be available?

I need to upgrade from 2017 version as I'm having numerous issues with getting the new QB Workforce invite to work for 12 payroll clients with employees. My clients do not want to pay for the Online version as it's a monthly fee, whereas I can renew my annual desktop subscription and pass the savings along to them that way. I just want to know if I should upgrade now to 2019 or wait for 2020? And also, will they continue to support the desktop versions or will they force us to go online?

Welcome to the Community, @nancy M.


You can now upgrade to QuickBooks Pro 2019. Let me discuss this further and help you from there.


QuickBooks users are encouraged to upgrade to the latest version to get the latest features available. Since QuickBooks 2020 is not yet release, you can start upgrading from QB Pro 2017 to 2019.


But before upgrading, you need to make sure to meet the system requirements needed. These include and operating system like:

  • Windows 10 - all editions including 64-bit
  • Windows 8.1 (Update 1) - all editions including 64-bit
  • Windows 7 SP1 - all editions including 64-bit
  • Windows Server 2016
  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Windows Server 2011 Standard and Essentials
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

Other system requirements are found in this article: System Requirements for QuickBooks 2019 and Enterprise Solutions 19.0.


When you’re ready to upgrade, you can go to the Downloads & Updates page to get the latest version. Then, you can install it on your computer and start working on your business.
