QuickBooks Licensing Overview
Am I required to have a QuickBooks license before utilizing ASAP’s hosting services?
Yes. Intuit requires that all users own or lease a QuickBooks license before using hosting services. Depending on the version used, QuickBooks allows “multi-user mode”, meaning that multiple users can collaborate on the same company file at the same time. Even in multi-user mode, Intuit requires that each user has his own license “seat”. Multiple user seats can be purchased under the same license, though the overall cost of the license will vary as seats are added. Users can purchase a license through ASAP at a significantly discounted rate. ASAP leases licenses for QuickBooks Pro, Premier, Accountant, and Enterprise.
