As of July 1st, QuickBooks is implementing a change to their online subscriptions.
QuickBooks is evolving to keep pace with you as you grow. We want to make sure you're working with the plan that's the best fit for you. To do that, we revised our plans and added usage limits to better match the capabilities of our products. We also built a powerful new product, called QuickBooks Online Advanced, for customers who need more capacity and functionality.
What it means for you
Beginning July 1, usage limits will go into effect for all QuickBooks Online Simple Start, Essentials, Plus, and Advanced customers. The terms and restrictions for customers on annual plans will not change during their current subscription period.
You have time and options
To view your usage and see where you stand: sign in to your account. Select the gear icon in the Toolbar, then Account and Settings, then Usage. If you have multiple companies, you will need to check the usage for each company.
You can stay in your current plan and keep all your data. But you won't be able to manually add an account, user, class or location if it will put you over the limit. For example, if you're at your plan's maximum for billable users, you'll need to remove a user or upgrade before you can add a new one.
Usage limits by plan: Simple Start, Essentials, Plus, and Advanced
