Intuit is about to launch the latest version of QuickBooks i.e. QuickBooks 2018 in the middle of this year. Although it is too hard to predict the exact date but the new version can be expected to be in the market in the second or third week of September.
Intuit has released all prior versions, such as QuickBooks 2016 or QuickBooks 2017 in the 3rd week of September for the last ten years.
Looking at last few years trend, Intuit has been releasing the new version of QuickBooks on the last Tuesday of September. Though Intuit has officially not confirmed any dates for this year’s release yet, and, we don’t see much discussion in Intuit forums on this too, but we still think that it will be released on 26th September 2017.
Small and medium sized business owners are extremely excited about the launch of QuickBooks 2018 and industry experts are making predictions about the feature enhancements that are expected from the product.
There have been many speculations about the new features that will be available in QuickBooks 2018. QuickBooks hosting services providers are accordingly making new plans to target customers as soon as the launch is announced.

Here are some general expectations of QuickBooks users from QuickBooks 2017.
1. Compatibility with QuickBooks 2017 and other prior versions:
Imagine a situation in which you need to share few company files with people using older versions of QuickBooks like QuickBooks 2015, QuickBooks 2014 etc. Then you must have the ability to save files of the latest version into older formats.
The QuickBooks users must be able to open old forms except in the case of active payroll services.
2. Support for Office 2016 :
In case you have upgraded to Microsoft Office 2016 and are using QuickBooks 2016 with it, you may suffer due to the improper functioning of the software. Since Intuit has not managed any compatibility with it.
For Example, you can work for your business invoices through Outlook 2013 but not Outlook 2016.
3. Choice to update the software:
The most fascinating feature of QuickBooks is that you can manage your employee payroll and get it synchronized to your online bank accounts. Let us talk about the situation after 3 years of purchasing the product.
As per the Intuit’s discontinuation policy, you will lose product support and many of the features gets blocked. You need to enter all the transactions manually. In order to get everything back in to practice, you need to upgrade to a newer version of QuickBooks, even if you do not require any amendments in the software.
The user must have the choice whether or not he wants to update the software.
Hosted QuickBooks has been the first choice of enterprise clients looking for improved productivity. The new version of QuickBooks hosted on Cloud will bring all the custom benefits available via hosting to enterprise customers. Accordingly, the demand for QuickBooks cloud service providers will witness a rise in the coming time.
We are eager to use QuickBooks 2018 and waiting for its release. Hopefully, it will meet all of the major expectations of QuickBooks users.
