Upgrade to a new QuickBooks Desktop version

We've been using desktop Quickbooks Simple Start 2007 for over ten years.   We have two companies:  one for rental units and one for personal.   I haven't been upgrading via the internet and unfortunately can no longer back-up.  Therefore, I'd like to just set up new companies and transfer beginning balances (and this time, stay current!).  Please recommend a version.  Thank you!!
