QuickBooks and Peachtree: Office Accounting News

I got some news in my inbox this morning.

As of November 16, 2009, Microsoft will no longer be offering any upgrades or enhancements to its Office Accounting product. Microsoft indicates that support for current users will continue for up to five years. If they recently purchased Office Accounting, they can return it for a refund. More details about this news announcement at:


Absolutely Windows

If the client converts they can save 20% on their purchase of QuickBooks accounting software to replace it.

Peachtree offers discounts to convert as well.

The folks at Quicken indicate that over the next 6 to 9 months, Quicken Online will be migrated into services. More details and insights at:

Frankly, I am not surprised that Microsoft Accounting was removed from the offerings. Microsoft was trying to get into a market that was well serviced with QuickBooks and Peachtree.

If you are in the Milwaukee Wisconsin area and use Office Accounting, I have done many conversions from Office Accounting to Peachtree or QuickBooks. E-mail David Chermak at and I can help you with a conversion.
