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!!
