Updated September 19th, 2014 – The ship-date on Amazon’s QuickBooks pre-order has just changed from October 1st to September 22nd at 12:00am pacific time (that’s on Monday morning!). They also just added the full product descriptions to to their QuickBooks Pro 2015 and Mac 2015 pages so you can now see all the new features listed (Premier and the other 2015 versions do not yet have the features posted).

Updated September 10th, 2014 – Pre-orders for QuickBooks Pro 2015, Premier 2015 and Mac 2015 have just been posted on Amazon with a ship date of October 1st, 2014 (the new features/improvements are not yet listed). Last year we saw the same ship date listed for pre-orders but was then later changed and began shipping on September 24th. We expect to see the same happen this year.  You can also buy any 2014 version of QuickBooks directly from Intuit and qualify for a free upgrade to the 2015 version once it’s released.

Be sure to sign up to our release date notifier list (located at the right of this page) to be notified the moment the 2015 versions are released.

Updated September 8th, 2014 – Intuit has just released QuickBooks Accountant 2015.  We’re still waiting on the 2015 other desktop versions (Pro, Premier and Mac) and expect them to be released in about two weeks from now. Remember, if you just purchased Accountant 2014 then you may qualify for a free upgrade to the 2015 version! We also just updated our QuickBooks Accountant 2015 coupons and deals page so be sure to see then latest offers and promotions before buying.

Updated August 21st, 2014: Intuit has just confirmed that all QuickBooks 2014 desktop orders, including on Pro and Premier, will qualify for a free upgrade to the 2015 version once released at the end of September. Why is this important? Well, if you’re running QuickBooks on multiple PC’s then you can install the 2014 version on one and the 2015 version (once you receive your free upgrade) on another.

Updated August 10th, 2014: If the past is any indication of what’s to come on the future, then we are pretty much certain on when the new QuickBooks 2015 versions of Pro, Premier, Mac, and Home & Business will be released. We’ve been monitoring Intuit’s QuickBooks releases for the last ten years or so and don’t expect any dramatic changes in their release date cycle. Here’s our prediction:

QuickBooks 2015 versions expected to be announced and shipping in the third week of September, 2014.- Rumored QuickBooks 2015 Release Date

Here’s a quick look at the past few release dates. Most of the most recent ones occurred between the second and third weeks of September.

  • Quickbooks 2014 – It was released on September 23rd, 2013.
  • QuickBooks 2013 – Released on September 10th, 2012.
  • QuickBooks 2012 – Released on September 26th, 2011.
  • QuickBooks 2011 – Released on September 19th, 2010.
  • QuickBooks 2010 – Released on September 16th, 2009.
  • QuickBooks 2009 – Released on September 17th, 2008.

What if I just bought the 2014 version?

If you just purchased the 2014 version then you might qualify for a free upgrade to the corresponding 2015 version once it’s released. The official QuickBooks Store has historically offered free upgrades to those that purchased their software within a 7-week time window prior to a release. Any orders made at Intuit.com after August 21st, 2014, will qualify for the free upgrade.  We’re just not sure about orders made before then so be sure to check with their customer service team for details. Last year, in 2013, that window began on August 4th and went all the way through to the official release on September 23rd. Here are more details about last year’s free upgrade policy.

It’s important to note that the free upgrade policy only applies to orders made at the QuickBooks Store at Intuit.com. If you ordered from one of their resellers, like Amazon or Staples, then the free upgrade does not qualify. Fortunately, you can still request for a refund – Intuit offers an unconditional 60-day return policy regardless if you purchased it from them directly or from one of their authorized resellers. As most resellers won’t take the software back, the return must be completed directly with Intuit. You can find all the details of how to process your QuickBooks return in our returns section.

What would we like to see changed in QuickBooks 2015?

As a QuickBooks Pro user myself, I’m pretty satisfied overall with the 2014 version that I’m running. But there are still a few things that we would live to see in the next release.

  • Interface changes – For those that manage the books for several different organizations, QuickBooks should bring back the ability to change color schemes for different companies. Many have complained that the “new” color scheme is very difficult visually to work with. And in terms of the columns, they should automatically stay in place if adjusted. We all would on different screen sizes and it becomes cumbersome to adjust the columns every time you open them.
  • Tax rate flexibility – The ability to set a tax rate by job and location. Certain industries (i.e. Agriculture), have different tax rates by location with the current version of QuickBooks making it difficult to support this. It would also be very helpful to then be able to execute Sales reports based on regions (State, City, Zip, and custom).
  • Ability to apply a flat discount – An option for flat discount amount when entering the vendor invoice would be great. Right now, only entering a percentage is allowed. Most Some vendors offer flat-rate freight discounts depending on the shipment. It’s cumbersome to pull up each invoice at time of payment and enter the amount in.
  • Better searching capability for customers and products – The Search box in QuickBooks is pretty simply. If you don’t specify precisely what you’re looking for within the search data, QB won’t find it.
  • FIFO, LIFO inventory costing methods – The “Average Costing” for inventory does not work for all industries and pricing on certain items tends to significantly vary throughout the year. It would be great to have an option to price inventory on either last-in-first-out or first-in-last-out.
  • Signature capture – The ability to have Signature capture for in house and delivery drivers.

What changes do you want to see?

Are there things that frustrate you about the current version of QuickBooks? Want to see something changed? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

  1. December 8, 2014


    I’d really like see more options and flexibily in the user permissions.

  2. October 29, 2014


    I would like to see an option to capture a customers signature for field invoicing.

  3. September 29, 2014


    I just called into to get free upgrade from 2014 (purchased 02-Sept) to 2015 and seemed to get the runaround. They kept putting me on hold, then after 25 minutes came back and said they couldn’t complete the upgrade and would have to call me back later. Has anyone else experienced this type of trouble?

  4. September 22, 2014


    Since I upgraded to QB 2014 for Mac Sept 21, 2014 (via Intuit Store), am I eligible for a free upgrade to QB 2015 for Mac? If so how do I do that?

  5. September 19, 2014


    From Amazon:

    “This item will be available on September 22, 2014 at 12:00 AM (US/Pacific)”

    • September 19, 2014


      Great tip – Thanks Gregg! We’ve just updated the page above with the new ship date.

  6. September 18, 2014


    Should be able to run Open P.O.’s DETAIL by :
    item Description
    Just like your sales open order detail reports.

  7. September 16, 2014


    In terms of Invoices: I would love to be able to write collection notes on a invoice that has not been paid. Along with a date stamp for each notation. Once the invoice is paid, then it can go away. BUT until its collected…All information on that particular invoice be there for everyone to see. Maybe have a shortcut key like CTRL+M to enter memos.

    As for Banking Reports…I want to be able to print a report by month, week or whatever of my banking transactions in a simple format:
    Date; type of Transaction; name; memo; G/L acct; and finally amount. That’s it. In one line.

    As for importing scanned documents: I like how scan snap works, once you select the file to be imported/attached, the scanned document gets imported into quickbooks and becomes part of the particular transaction (ie A/P invoice; A/R Invoice, etc) and is removed from the folder. So you know it has been successfully imported. Simple and easy.
    That is my wish list for a improved Quickbooks!

  8. September 15, 2014


    I would like to see better inventory reporting tools, such as a Dead inventory report – showing how long each product has been in stock and when it was last sold (oldest sold dates at the top). I had this custom made so that I can see how many of each sku sold each month, with the longest periods of no sales showing at the top. Therefore identify dead stock that we need to move out or return to the manufacture. A key tool in managing inventory…hard to believe QB’s does not have this reporting feature.

  9. September 13, 2014


    I’d like to see the ability to print images attached to estimates. I want to take a pic of a piece of furniture at the customers home and be able to both attach which I can do now but also print it on the estimate / Work order. This allows the piece to be better tracked during production.

  10. September 10, 2014

    Sally Craig

    I would like a pop up screen on customers (that toggles on or off) each time you bring the customer up so you can put a note to remind you “COD only, or that he has left something and needs to pick it up, etc. etc.”

  11. September 9, 2014


    I would like to be able to batch send a single estimate to a list or group of customers. Once the people from this list indicates that they would like to go ahead, to then send a single invoice to a modified list/group of customer. This way I can batch send estimates to all my students but only invoice those that wishes to continue.

  12. September 9, 2014


    Often when I write an invoice, I have to correct a description or a price of an item. It would be nice to have the option “Do you want to update this item?” so I don’t have to go in the inventory part to change it before writing the invoice.

  13. September 8, 2014


    2015 Accountant Plus available for download now fro ProAdvisors.

  14. September 4, 2014


    Allow additional features in customers data entry and reporting such as more fields for equipment tracking and reminders for recurring services, and reporting. Do not wish to run add-on software for these options when simple additional field options would allow that.

  15. September 4, 2014


    A report “sales by vendor summery” (all items sold pertinent to a specific vendor).

  16. September 4, 2014


    Automated Purchase Orders. Based on qty on hand and qty maximums. A P.O. should be auto generated with a single click per vendor.

  17. September 4, 2014


    32 bit software is obsolete and can’t access more than 4 gigs of ram. This program needs at least 16 gigs at this point to run without tons of delays and errors. It should be the number one priority at intuit before doing anything else.

  18. September 3, 2014


    I would like the UPS shipping manager be able to pull the purchase order number off the invoice and insert it at the bottom of the shipping label.

  19. August 30, 2014


    I would like to run Company Reports in different currencies when using the multi-currency feature.

  20. August 28, 2014


    I would like to have “find and replace” feature like Excel for entering bills.

  21. August 28, 2014


    I would like it if I would stop getting the “Quickbooks is not responding” message all the time. I know it’s because Quickbooks IS NOT responding, but it happens all the time.

  22. August 26, 2014


    I have a high DPI display (high resolution) and QB2014 does not scale properly. Everything looks either way too small or very blurry when scaled to fit my screen.

    It would be great if Intuit updated their software so that it was retina / high-dpi display compatible for both Windows and OSX.

  23. August 26, 2014


    It would be wonderful if Vendor bills were sorted by bill date instead of date entered into QuickBooks when going to Pay Bills.

  24. August 24, 2014

    Mary Dwight

    I would like to be able to view a Balance Sheet and a Profit and Loss Comparison Report for more than 2 years.

  25. August 24, 2014


    I would like the backup to include attachments ALSO more flexibility for report design without having to export to excel.

  26. August 15, 2014


    We would like to see compatibility with Microsoft Office 365 Click – To – Run version. Our employees that use quickbooks can not email from QuickBooks to Outlook without me spending an extra 2 hours to install the MSI version of Office Professional Plus 2013, then the Click-To-Run version, uninstalling the MSI Version, and then finally running a repair on the Click-To-Run version to trick the system.

    A lot of time wasted for (1) feature.

  27. August 13, 2014

    Bob Rasmussen

    would like to see
    1. images of items added
    2. quickbooks own webstore managed from desktop
    3. auto purchase order based on sales, ROL or both (whichever is greater)
    4. quotes/estimates/invoices with images
    5. Better drop shipping
    6. todo list similar to asana, with time date stamped comments

  28. August 12, 2014


    Hope that this time around that there will be printing of amounts in words for Invoices.

  29. July 23, 2014


    I would like to be able to see any credits to post against outstanding invoices in the list with the payables. I have never been a fan of the credit button at the bottom of the payable list.

  30. July 21, 2014


    I frequently am asked “Please tell me when Company X has paid invoice Y”. Would like some automatic notification feature. Perhaps it would send an email when events occur.

    Please tell me the Customer:Job text box have increased in size. We work with Law firms and Long customer names don’t show properly in QB 2013 even though there is plenty of empty UI space to make the text box wider.

    We have 100+ employees and use 2014 QB Accountant Premier version. It would be nice if there were “pop up” selections for the CITY – when entering a new employee for our area.
    Make the “Sync” go away – REALLY go away. It is NOT Intuit’s business to know our business.
    Also – we use the Enhanced Direct Deposit payroll with our QB -it would be absolutely wonderful in the 2015 versionl if the DIRECT DEPOSIT part worked. We will NOT use the “View My Paycheck” as it does NOT work half the time.
    Also – the “File” – “Print Forms” – “Paystubs” “Email Both” etc., etc.-needs to be fixed – so employees CAN receive their paystubs through OutLook.com so I don’t receive 100 employee phone calls each week – asking where their paystubs are!!
    If those items are fixed I’d be elated.

    • July 23, 2014


      sync makes the mobile app work. I would like to see the mobile app have the option to change the invoice numbering. IE. set the starting place, or change it so it doesnt say web000001

      • August 19, 2014


        On the mobile topic, I would like to see the mobile app display all active jobs instead of only the most recent 500. We use jobs to manage multiple customer locations, so having some of those missing in the mobile app make it useless to us.

  32. July 15, 2014


    No one has mentioned concern over the dependence on Windows, especially the case for the Canadian version. The ONLY reason that I keep a Windows machine is for QB, and I’d love to move to a Linux desktop, or some other alternative. The online version doesn’t cut it, especially since I use the attached document feature. Otherwise I would be working with QB online from my Chromebox.

    • July 23, 2014



    • August 26, 2014



      QB Pro for Mac – Canadian Edition.

  33. July 9, 2014

    Roy Bonepalli

    A better way of handling memorized transactions. I like this feature had been designed in Quicken and would like to see a similarity in QuickBooks. Also, I think some expansion of the vendor and interfaces for history and credit limits such as found in Sage products

    • July 23, 2014


      I agree. Auto transactions really mess us up more then any other thing. Its actually faster to do it manually.

  34. July 5, 2014


    multiple language pack to be available so that we could issue PO in other countries’ languages.

  35. July 5, 2014

    Barry Bilewitz

    I would like to have total quantity of all items on an invoice, PO, SO, etc. without having to purchase an add-on like FormCalc.

    • July 17, 2014


      Ditto on that one. I bill for “hours worked” for the Quantity and have to add them by hand.

  36. July 1, 2014


    I Would like to be able to highlight specific customers that are slow to play – this would enable you to keep track of them all of the time – 2015 – should be there to make our life easier!

    I would also like to see a diary system in there that way it can remind you to call customers etc

    Finally I would like to keep more notes on customers – there should be more characters allowed in this portion of the notes

  37. June 30, 2014


    I would like to have a service tech scheduling/calendar feature that pulls up my customers information automatically for the home service/construction industry or any service company that goes to the customers to provide the service.

  38. June 28, 2014


    I would love to have a CRM module in QB. Appointment book. This is for an Accounting office right? Why not all in one software solution.

  39. June 20, 2014


    I would like to see the custom field more than 15 and also more than 11 character space for num field in invoice & Bill Num.

  40. June 19, 2014


    I would like to be able to enter the ‘class’ at the transaction level

  41. June 10, 2014

    Ed Mannering

    I would like to see Quickbooks Server work with Quickbooks for Mac over a remote connection. Right now it only works on the same network.

  42. May 23, 2014


    I would like to see the ability to set up different States that we work in. Especially a better sales tax breakout

  43. May 22, 2014


    I would like to see the Following
    1. Customize the printing of Journal Voucher and Check.
    2. Print Cheque Number on Payment Voucher.
    3. New Numbering Field for Receive Payment.

  44. May 4, 2014


    I would like to see the ability to add an image of the customer to the customer snapshot.

  45. April 15, 2014


    Estimated Arrival Date by item. Currently it is one arrival date for an entire PO. For those of us importing from Asia, arrival dates can change for each item on a PO, independent of each other.

    • July 4, 2014


      Nick, you can manage it through the addition of a custom field in an item and name it “Arrival Date”. Then add it to the column of P.O through formatting.

  46. April 11, 2014

    Paul Umbro

    I need more robust sorting within reports.Right now with only one level of sorting my item report is by Item and then the second level of sorting defaults to the transaction number. So if I want to see by item and by date the items are arranged in the order they were entered into the system which may be totally different than the dates. This forces my company to enter transactions in the exact order they need to display on the report instead of being able to enter them as they come in. This basic multi level sorting is something enterprise customers need!

  47. April 4, 2014


    I would like to see a county and city field added to indicate where jobs are located and also to be able to run a report using those fields. It would make it easier to obtain the figures to do business taxes.

  48. March 21, 2014


    How about an SDK? Integration with Salesforce or any CRM???

    Maybe? No? Anything?

  49. March 10, 2014

    Mikundi Kambwili

    Two things that I would like to see in QuickBooks 2015:

    1. The undeposited checks should be categorised as bank not other current assets as it is related to your bank accounts.
    2.There should be a window that allows users to issue stocks as non sales stock. For example when you use such stocks yourself and are able to charge them to an expense code of your choice.

  50. March 6, 2014

    Paul Umbro

    I’d like to be able to sort items by any column within the Bill and Invoice Entry Screens. When you’re pulling many lines of data in from Purchase Orders or Sales Orders it becomes extremely inefficient when only sorted by transaction ID or Sales Order #. We should be able to sort by Item! It would save me hours of work arounds which involve using custom reports. I’ve been putting this forth as a product improvement to Intuit for years now…hope it finally makes it into 15.

  51. February 28, 2014


    I would like to be able to track workflow. I need to see the status of a sales order as it goes through our production department. Peachtree has this ability. They allow for a simple but effective dashboard.

  52. February 26, 2014

    Stephanie Cissa

    I would like to have more hyper-links or roll-over windows. IE: All invoices, checks, customer names, numbers, email addresses, etc. should be a hyper-link.

  53. February 24, 2014


    I would like to see Sales Orders show % Mark up columns (basically mimic a estimate)

    When adding an last minute item on a Sales Order, we should be able to add an item like done on an estimate, issue a PO, be able to adjust all items % markup on a Sales Order.

    Also, I would love to be able to resort items in estimates, invoices, sales orders. Many times a customer wants us to group items on invoices. The issue, once you spend hours adding items to an estimate, we have not way to move items up or down to resort items on an estimate, sales order on invoice.

  54. February 21, 2014

    Denise Hatcher

    There is a need to be able to track inventory in multiple locations (at least two!).

  55. February 21, 2014

    Denise Hatcher

    I would like to see the ability to sort undeposited funds by number, amount, date, as well as by the current type.

  56. February 20, 2014


    How about opening the mac version to developers? I need this to work with Salesforce – Major short sightedness by Intuit!

  57. January 10, 2014


    I would like to see the ability to sort undeposited funds by number, amount, date, as well as by the current type.
