What Intuit QuickBooks says

QuickBooks Desktop helped Intuit to become the world’s number one supplier of accounting software, but in today’s competitive world software developers need to adapt to fast-moving market changes.

Intuit recognises that not every business or accountant is ready for the cloud, and if their goal is to grow and support clients on desktop software, we will continue to support them. Our business is not based on push people onto a particular offering. We want to make our cloud offering as appealing as we can make, to encourage them, but ultimately the software decision they make should be based on what’s great for their business.

Intuit QuickBooks if firmly committed to delivering the best possible experience for Making Tax Digital, and our desktop products are an integral part of that process.

What AccountingWEB says

Because of its flexibility, QuickBooks Desktop has enjoyed considerable success among a small group of loyal UK users - mainly accountants.

A new edition of QuickBooks Desktop was released for 2018 but the indicators are very clear that Intuit is putting much less emphasis on its old flagship product. While you can still buy the application from Intuit, the company’s sales machinery is focused very much on pushing QuickBooks Online instead, for example with multi-company upgrade offers for accountants supporting multiple clients on the desktop version.
