Register QuickBooks

Registration is free and entitles you to many benefits, including access to technical support and notification of product updates.

You can use QuickBooks up to 30 days without registering. After 30 days, you must register to continue using QuickBooks.

Important: If you have multiple copies of QuickBooks, you must register each copy installed on every computer.

For information regarding validation codes, please see "Get a validation code to register QuickBooks."

Register a copy of QuickBooks that has never been registered.

  1. Open QuickBooks.

  2. Check to see if QuickBooks is already registered:

If you install QuickBooks on a new computer, you need to register again. When you reregister, you must provide the ZIP code and phone number that was originally used to register the product.

Reregister a reinstalled copy of QuickBooks 2006 or earlier

Important: Discontinued products can't be registered for the first time now. You can only reregister discontinued products if they have been registered previously and are being reinstalled.

  1. Open QuickBooks.

  2. Choose Help > Register QuickBooks.

  3. Select the Phone option.

  4. Click OK.

  5. Follow the prompts to complete the registration process.

In keeping with Intuit's discontinuation plan for older products, discontinued products can't be registered for the first time. You may reregister discontinued products if they have been registered previously and are being reinstalled. Assisted support for discontinued products is no longer available. If you have an older product, we recommend that you upgrade your version of QuickBooks.

If this solution doesn't resolve the issue, you can read discussions and post messages and questions relating to your issue on the Intuit QuickBooks Community site for free, or you can contact a technical support agent for additional guidance. Fees may apply.
