The following guide will instruct you on the steps you need to take in order to upgrade your QuickBooks file to a newer version.
This request may only be submitted by a Portal Manager or Authorized Contact equivalent user, this is required even if you want to upgrade the file yourself. There is a $25 setup fee (per file) for having CARET do the upgrade for you.
You will be need to provide CARET with your QuickBooks license details for the new requested version. This includes the version, year, license number, product key, and the number of users/seats that license has.
If you do not own a license with the requisite number of users/seats for all the users you wish to use that version of QuickBooks, you will need to purchase that license first.
CARET provides the option for customers to BYOL (Bring your own licensing) or acquire licensing through our vendor, Out of the Box Technology. When choosing to acquire licensing through our vendor, Out of the Box Technology will contact and assist you in purchasing the QuickBooks license you need; you may then provide that license to CARET to complete your upgrade.
