Its especially going to hurt anyone who uses QBO to manage their Real Estate Management and Investment portfolios. Most likely I'll be switching back to a Desktop version that doesn't impose artificial limits on classes and CoAs and if desktop versions imposes these restrictions I'll be looking elsewhere. There is zero chance I'll pay $120/mo. for advanced. The extra features do not benefit my business only the unrestricted limits. It'll be difficult to stay under the 250 CoA limit but it will be impossible to stay under the 40 class limit as each property is categorized as a class.

tl;dr Which Quickbooks Desktop version should I switch to from QBO plus, I plan on leaving Quickbooks Online and go back to a Desktop version as long as there are no class or CoA limits; which desktop version does not impose class/chart of account limits? (Shame, shame, shame, shame!) Concerns: When purchasing QBO Plus it said nothing about Class or Chart of Account limits, after finding out about these new unreasonable limitations that are about to be put on QBO accounts I want to know if these limitations are on the Desktop versions also. How is it that Simple Start, Essentials, & Plus have the same limits? Paying more should get you incrementally more to your limits, a company paying $20 gets as much limits as the company paying $60! You're asking a lot of small companies to go from $720/yr to $1,800 when the only feature most would be upgrading for is an increase to classes/CoA limits. Honestly, if you got to money grub, at least give me the option to buy just an increase in class/CoAs limits, charge me for both if you must but every other Advanced "extra" feature is USELESS to me and isn't the reason I'd want to upgrade to Advanced. I don't need 25 users, nor a Fathom account, accelerated invoicing, custom user permissions, and premium care priority circle, its all unnecessary junk. My QB Usage: I'm trying to find out which, if any, quickbook versions will be best suited for my usage. Main business is in Real Estate. For each property rental we assign it to a class, this way viewing reports for each property comes out organized. Is this possible to do with "Projects"? Is that a viable alternative? Property management and loan accounts require the making of 3 CoAs to properly balance the books (long term liability, escrow, and expense accounts).
