Will there be a Quicken Home and Business for Mac in the future? (212 Legacy Votes)

Rick L. McCarleyRick L. McCarley Member ✭✭
Quicken Home and Business is the best and most perfect solution for our very small businesses. I have looked for a long time for something that would do what Quicken H&B does and there is no equal. Two years ago I switched to a Mac. I would really love to do away with Windows and Quicken H&B is the only reason I still run Windows on my Mac. Macintosh computers are being purchased at a greater quantity than ever before. Please consider creating Quicken Home and Business for Mac. I, for one, would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks for putting a vote for a Home and Business version.  Anyone else interested in this?  We still have quite a bit of functionality to add to Quicken for Mac just to get it even close to Quicken Windows so the reality is it may be some time before we get there but would love to find out how many people are interested in this.

    I am sure there are as many as 1/2 of Quicken users who would love a Mac version! I myself am using VirtualBox on my iMac running Windows 7. I have 3 family members who have switched to Macs and if there was a Mac version you would have 3 more customers. Too bad Intuit is dragging their feet!  I have been a user for 25 years and very disappointed!

    Quicken Home & Business on Mac will be very welcome. Have to use virtual machines to run Windows on Macs now. Searching on the internet for solutions, it seems there are a lot of users who had to resolve to using virtual machines on Mac to be able to run Quicken Home & Business. 

    Mac is growing as a platform for serious business and home end users, hope Intuit is taking notice of this.

    This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Quicken for Home & Business for Mac.


    I have been a Quicken user since the DOS days and it has been perfect for me. However, ten years ago I saw the light and switched to using Mac computers. I tried in vain using Quicken for Mac and it did not have the same functionality as Quicken for Home & Business. I tried using a virtual Windows on Mac but the keystrokes are not the same. Bottom line - please expand the line to include higher functioning Quicken products for those of us who want to be free from Windows so I can finally rid my desktop of the last remaining PC, keyboard and mouse that clutter it solely because  I have become so dependent upon Quicken for Home & Business.

    I completely agree. Quicken for Mac should and dare I say must be on par with quicken for Windows for you to have a viable product and charge the same price. Quicken for Mac compared to Quicken for windows is a sub-par product. So sorry i purchased. Currently looking for another product to give me what i need and still use my Mac

    I have been using Quicken forever and specifically Home and Business for many, many years. I have postponed switching to Mac because of the lack of this migration. However, when the new MacBook comes out this Fall I am making the switch. It would be super great if there were a Home and Business version for Mac. The words "it may be awhile" is discouraging, especially considering the years that Quicken has had to develop this. Please consider reallocating resources for this product. Thank you.

    I also vote for a business edition of Quicken for Mac. I run a small business and am currently using Quickbooks but I would switch to Quicken in a heartbeat if there were a Business edition. As stated earlier the number of Mac users is growing more and more everyday and I really think you are losing quite a bit of revenue by not having a business edition for Mac.

    Have you looked into running a VM on your Mac ... and then running Windows within that and H&B within Windows?

    It's an option but that would require me to purchase not only Quicken but also VM, and a copy of windows. Just not willing to spend that much money just to have a Business version of Quicken.

    That is how I am running H&B now and that is the only reason I'm running Windows at all. I would really rather not have to run Windows on my Mac.

    The QMac product is, when compared to QWin, somewhere between the Win "Starter Edition" and Win "Deluxe" in capability.  It's going to be a LONG time before an H&B for Mac is available.  Years, not months.

    They've been saying "years" for years now. I guess that means never in Quicken-speak. Any other good financial solutions out there?

    Please add Home and Business for Mac.  My old Windows desktop is dying fast and I use that computer only for Quicken Home and Business home accounting. I am currently using Quickbooks Self Employed for my private practice and and it is extremely limited in its functions

    I too had been an original windows quicken user - I switched to a mac to run my business 8 years ago after my last dell computer bit the dust.  I was VERY disappointed that there was no home and business for my mac and and still disappointed in that - I am starting up my business again and would need to have a business product for my income/expenses.  Since it appears that Quicken will not be coming out with a home and business I will have to look for another option.  Does anyone here know of alternatives?

    P.S. Since the new release of the Macbook Pro (2016), I've ordered one which is due to arrive Mid-December. The sooner Intuit can release a Quicken Home and Business solution, the better :) Ready? Go!

    Hi Marcus!  Please-please-please move up the time frame for Mac version of QH&B!  I've been a loyal customer for over a decade and now have a college bound son I'd love to introduce to Quicken but he says, "Dad, no way I'm getting a PC" nor does he want the hassle of a Windows emulator.  

    Thanks!

    YES, Please make home and business for mac .... I have been using home and business for just over 10 years and have moved to mac about 4 years ago and it is annoying having to open and deal with windows just for this software if anything comes available that operates the same and is mac based I am jumping on it.

    Totally agree. I am being forced to keep my accounting on a separate computer, and then it doesn't get done very often. I sure wish I could do everything on my mac!  
    I too have been a Quicken user for over 25 years, I'm shocked that Intuit hasn't produced H&B for mac yet.

    Have you found that elusive product?


    So disappointed to have to install software on my Mac to allow it to operate the PC Quicken Home and Business, you'd think they'd realize the demand for a Mac version of this product?

    Consider these free alternatives, in the meantime...

    Since you need to keep your PC & Mac, you could also run Quicken on the PC and use remote access software (several free options, e.g. NoMachine and Teamviewer) to access Quicken on one computer from the other, or even mobile devices (see this great article for complete review of many options (most are free): http://machow2.com/rdp-for-mac/ ). Though this article was written primarily with Macs in mind, there are many solutions offered that work for Windows too. The one trade-off is that the host computer cannot really be used for anything else while using Quicken with these remote solutions.

    Quicken needs to devote more internal resources to build out H&B for Mac !
