How can I transfer my 2015 Quickbooks Accountant Liscense to my sister? Is something like this possible? I am no longer using and she is getting back into the field.

This is the specific program that I would like to transfer title over to my sister.. is this possible?  I won't be using this anymore and she needs to get up to speed on a newer version on quickbooks.  

I am a quickbooks proadvisor member and I get the downloads of the newest version each year and would like to give this 2015 version (noted below) to my sister legally.

Answer

You should never post identifiers on the internet.

Intuit doesn't transfer licenses like that. If this was one Business buying another, then the sale of all assets would include the program. Additionally, QB 2015 reaches End of Life May 2018. In just a month or so, QB 2018 will be out, and Intuit has a 3-year lifecycle for the Desktop programs, so when QB 2018 comes out, you do the math: QB 2018, 2017 and 2016 are the Three Supported Years. That is why QB 2015 reaches End of Life in May 2018. Here is a Discontinuation topic for reference:

If a person needs tools, they should buy their tools.

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
