    Anyone know the difference between 2012 and 2011? I have 2011 and was wondering if its worth upgrading?

    I upgrade my Quickbooks every 3 or 4 years. They make minor improvements year to year, but I don't think they justify the investment every year. I just upgraded to 2012 from 2009. It's nice, but if I had 2011 I don't think I would bother since you probably have most of the nicer improvements already.

    Good luck!

    I also upgraded from 2009 to 2012, but only because I had to. I use QB payroll and I could not continue w/o upgrading. No problems w/ the upgrade. The upgrade does have "calendar" ( a to do scheduler) which '09 did not have.

    We are locked into annual renewals since we use payroll. Otherwise the changes are a little each year. I'd expect to notice the difference if you jump several years, but generally the changes are small. The biggest thing I noticed is that now they have the online and mobile apps which allow remote access from PCs and iphones/ipads, etc. This can be bought alone for 99 or you can get it with a bunch of other features and a yearly subscription for 249 in what they call a plus version.

    If you subscribe to payroll, Iniut will send you the latest version. If you don't there is not much difference from 2011 to 2012. I do like the calender in 2012 but I would not pay for an upgrade just for that.

    same here. I upgraded from 2009 only because I had to, and won't upgrade again until I have to. No issues yet.

    I hear that 2012 has a feature that you can attach document with each persons account. I think that would be nice so all that persons document can be found at one place.

    I usally upgrade ever 2 years and I just did in 2011.

    Not that I can see in 2012. You can import excel files and add notes, but to add a word doc not hat I can see in the Canadian version of 2012.
