Intuit has revealed QuickBooks for Mac 2013, the next major update of the company's small business accounting software. Relatively few changes to the app have been detailed, but Intuit does say 2013 will simplify a number of common tasks, such as invoicing, reconciling accounts, and adding contacts. A new online payment service will be offered through Intuit, and users will be able to attach documents to items such as contracts, proposals, and receipts.

Tips and video walkthroughs are promised to guide new users. The new QuickBooks should first go on sale September 24th, through the Intuit website. Only on October 7th will the software reach the wider retail world, hitting outlets such as Amazon, Best Buy, Staples, and OfficeMax. Prices are set to start at $249 for a single-user license.

Without payroll Quickbooks program still worthless, especially at that price.

Off topic but I wish Intuit would come out with a decent version of Qucken for the Mac. Too much to ask? Sadly, yes.

Intuit hates the Mac platform. Always have. They give us crappy versions of their software, go out of the way to make it incompatible, and then blame lack of sales for not investing in the products.

Until Intuit needs to grow the f up and release:
1. a common file format and networking protocol with the Windows version
2. complete feature parity with the Windows version

It's not that hard and they've been receiving this feedback for years. How can anyone conclude anything but their goal being to treat Mac users as second class citizens.

just be glad you aren't a Canadian Mac user. No Quickbooks for Mac in Canada, they direct you to the online only. (Even the windows version in Canada is always shipped later than the US version)
(I'm sure other countries are even worse off... no version at all? )

It's amazing to see how much progress has been made with QuickBooks, considering it's just one guy who has to split his time between updating Quicken, QuickBooks and keeping mint.com compatible with Safari...

Reminds me of my local supermarket:

Me: "You've run out of granola!"

Manager: "We only had a few boxes to start with."

Me: "Why's that?"

Manager: "There isn't much demand for it."

Me: "But you've sold it all."

Manager: "Yes."

Me: "So why don't you order more?"

Manager: "There'll be more on Monday."

Me: "How much?"

Manager: "Just a few boxes."

Me: "Why not more."

Manager: "We don't sell much."

Next monday...

Me: "There's no granola!"

Manager: "We had a delivery this morning and it's all gone."

Me: "Why not order more?"

Manager: "We don't sell much."

I give up....
