QuickBooks 2009 Service Discontinuation or Sunset
On May 31, 2012, QuickBooks 2009 will be sunset according to QuickBooks Service Discontinuation Policy. This means Quickbooks 2009 will no longer be supported and the following features will no longer work:
- QuickBooks Payroll services
- Online Banking
- QuickBooks Email
- Credit Card Processing
- Bill Pay
- Billing Solutions
- Third-party products
- Live technical support
- Online Backup
According to the Service Discontinuation Policy (i.e. Sunset policy), ” If you don’t make use of live technical support or any of our add-on services, and are happy with your current version of QuickBooks, you can continue to use it.” However, there have been a lot of new features and enhancements since 2009 so I would recommend upgrading to 2012. Especially if you can get it at a great price as mentioned above.
