Can I Move from QuickBooks Pro to Premier or into QuickBooks Enterprise?

I would like to take a second and clear up the confusion that many businesses have about their options when purchasing the new "model year" of QuickBooks (i.e. QuickBooks 2010 when it is released this fall). Here are some helpful tips to know:

1) If you own QuickBooks Pro, you can move up to QuickBooks Premier (any edition - i.e. Contractor, Manufacturing, etc.) or you can move directly to QuickBooks Enterprise if you find your business needs more than 5 users in QuickBooks at any given time or needs to work with a bigger QuickBooks data file. The transition of your data from one edition to another in this scenario is seamless.

2) If you own QuickBooks Premier (any edition - i.e. Contractor, Manufacturing, etc.), you can move back into QuickBooks Pro if you don't need the extra features in QuickBooks Premier. You can also move directly to QuickBooks Enterprise if your business is growing, you need more than 5 users or you need to work with a bigger QuickBooks data file. The transition of your data in this scenario is seamless.

3) If you own QuickBooks Enterprise and want to move back into QuickBooks Pro or QuickBooks Premier, you cannot do that directly. If this is truly the route you need to go, you will need to either create a brand new QuickBooks data file from scratch or work with a third party specialist like QBorNotQB to help make that transition.
