Upgrade of software is one of the finest ways to keep your business functioning with latest tools and technologies. Intuit Payroll software upgrade is no different. As Intuit follows rigid sunset policies, it is imperative for QuickBooks Add-on services like QuickBooks Merchant Services, Credit Card Processing, Intuit Payroll Services, Bill Pay and Online Banking Solutions, to be upgraded every three years at least in order to gain benefit from expert support of Intuit set up customer care team. As per sunset policies of Intuit, support is offered to only the current and two previous versions of the software. Generally this sunset of older versions of software occurs in the month of May every year, for example customer support for Intuit Payroll 2014 ends in May 2017 and the versions before that (2014) have already gone out of validity.
