As we said before, new versions of QuickBooks are generally released in the fall of the year before the software release. As an example, QuickBooks 2010 was released to the market in October 2009. QuickBooks 2012 was released September 27, 2010. We expect QuickBooks 2012 to be released in the Sept/Oct period of 2011.

- A remit to address for vendors
- Better tools to manage accounts receivable
- A redesigned set of tools to customize reports
- The end of forced phone-in registration to get a license code.
- A fix on the problem that occurs with average cost on inventory items
- A refresh of the customer center
- The ability to purchase two additional licenses for QuickBooks Enterprise

Here are some excerpts from the Intuit press release on the features of QuickBooks 2011:
QuickBooks Pro and Premier 2011 build on prior versions by streamlining important accounting tasks, such as invoicing and collecting payments. The new Customer Snapshot and Customer and Vendor History features provide at-a-glance views of important customer and vendor details. Users can also take advantage of the power of QuickBooks Connect, a new service that lets small businesses access key QuickBooks data remotely via the Internet or a mobile device. Additionally, as with previous versions, QuickBooks 2011 helps small business owners stay organized by allowing them to have their business information in one place.
That sounds great, but to get a better pulse on what the accounting community thinks about QuickBooks 2012 Pro, QuickBooks 2011 Premier, and QuickBooks 2012 Mac, let’s take a look at what the reviews and software sites have to say:
MacWorld QuickBooks 2012 Review: “In QuickBooks 2011 for the Mac, it’s easier to enter that data into the application. The new version also gives users the ability to add mileage data to invoices if that’s something a user includes for billing.”
Tuaw Apple Blog: “QuickBooks 2011 is a very nice update indeed. QuickBooks 2011 for the Mac will be available for download or for phone and Web orders.”
Stay tuned for updates on QuickBooks 2012, the next version of QuickBooks which we expect to be due out this Fall.
