QuickBooks 2017 R12 Released

| December 21, 2018

Intuit has released QuickBooks 2017 R12, a maintenance release. This update should be available via automatic updates soon, if it isn’t already. You can also go to the QuickBooks Update site to download the patch. Several of the changes here match the recent release of QuickBooks 2018 R10, and there are a few others added on.

The changes are:

  • Accountant’s Copy File Transfer: There are some unspecified changes to provide “better collaboration with accountants.” Not sure what exactly was changed.
  • Payroll Onboarding: Intuit has improved the in-product Payroll purchase experience to make it simpler and faster. “Express Setup” lets you quickly add employees, set up their pay and benefits, and run the first payroll.
  • Payroll Reports: You can now generate State Mandated Retirement reports for states that require reporting of retirements deductions from each paycheck.
  • Payroll Compliance: There are some “US tax law” compliance changes, but Intuit doesn’t provide us with any details on that.
  • Upgrade: You can now easily upgrade your software to a newer version from within your existing QuickBooks product without additional separate downloads.
  • TSheets Deep Integration: You can now integrate your TSheets account directly from withing QuickBooks with a new integration method, and you can set up a new TSheets account directly from withing QuickBooks. I have always been a fan of TSheets prior to the acquisition by Intuit, and I’m very happy to see that they are bringing some integration improvements to QuickBooks Desktop (rather than focusing just on QuickBooks Online integration).
  • Self Help: There are some unspecified changes in the help panel.
