QuickBooks 2021 R10 Released

| June 7, 2022

Intuit has released QuickBooks 2021 R10, which includes a small number of changes that will only affect a few businesses, in my opinion.

This update will be available via automatic updates. You can also go to the QuickBooks Update site to download the patch.

QuickBooks 2021 R10 and Microsoft Internet Explorer

QuickBooks Desktop has used a built-in version of Microsoft Internet Explorer for many functions for as long as I can remember. This has been annoying to many users who don’t really want to use an older browser that has a number of compatibility issues in some environments, but it has been something we’ve had to live with. However, Microsoft is retiring Internet Explorer on June 15, 2022. If QuickBooks continues to use that browser, they are using something that is no longer supported, no longer updated, which is a security risk.

With the release of QuickBooks 2021 R10, Intuit is dropping Internet Explorer from QuickBooks, and will rely on their own custom web browser. This “custom” browser actually has been in use for some of the functions for several years now, I believe, so it should be reasonably reliable. It also will be updated for security issues by Intuit moving forward.

This is a good move and it is a good idea to update your QuickBooks 2022 product to the R5 release. Most people will not notice any differences.

Other Changes in QuickBooks 2021 R10

  • Intuit Processed Payment Receipts: Additional fields have been added to the Print Customer Copy of Intuit payment receipts for Money Transmission Licenses (MTL) compliance.
  • If you are using QuickBooks Assisted Payroll you can set up a Guideline 401(k) from within QuickBooks. Forms are pre-set with employee and company information. Contributions are sent automatically to Guideline with no extra steps from you. Note that this may not be enabled until late June.
