    QuickBooks for Mac has Worked fairly well for me until I upgraded to QB for Mac 2019. Sadly, the new version is not synched with the Payroll program. I have chatted with eight different Intuit support persons today and none of them could help me. Don’t buy QuickBooks if you use a Mac. Find something else.

    I started bookkeeping 25 years ago on Quickbooks for Mac. Though I’ve worked on PC versions for most of the time since then, I’ve always had at least one client that wouldn’t give up their Mac.

    Intuit has discontinued Quickbooks for Mac multiple times over the years, and will likely continue the pattern into the future. The user base just doesn’t exist to justify annual updates and it’s never been nearly as robust as the PC versions. It’s still the best choice for a full fledged Mac based accounting system.

      Thanks for your comprehensive review. I am on the fence with QB Mac and leaning toward just getting QBD Pro. The reviews have just been awful for the Mac support in the QB community.
      However, my concern is that if I set up the Mac system, they may phase out the Mac platform altogether–only offering QB Online for Mac users. (That’s not an option for me.)
      My question to you: What do you know of the support for QB Mac? Will it be phased out in 2019?

      Hi Cathleen,

      Thanks for reaching out! Unfortunately, QuickBooks Mac is already in the process of being phased out. The final version of the software was released in 2016, and by May 2019 the software will no longer be supported at all. I recommend taking a look at our Best Accounting Software for Macs post to find a QuickBooks Mac alternative.

      Let me know if I can be of any more assistance.

      Best wishes,

      -Chelsea Krause
