Un-registering my copy of Quickbooks 2012 so I can sell it.

I have a copy of Quickbooks 2012 for Mac that I just put up for sale on ebay. (The program just wasn't for me.) I am getting a number of inquiries from interested bidders about the transfer of the license of the software. I do not recall if I ever officially registered the software after i installed it or not. I played around with it for a little bit and decided it wasn't for me. I uninstalled the software and it has sat in a box until I put it up today. How do I go about ensuring that the software and license have my info removed so that the winning bidder can install it on their computer with little to no hassle? The Intuit/Quickbooks website offers a lot of contradictory information. Much thanks.

Need a cloud based invoicing / accounting program that is not Quickbooks

Before I begin, I know the most popular and reasonable answer will be to learn and use Quickbooks. There is some sort of 'block' in my brain that will not allow me to learn quickbooks and I am content in using a different software to do the simple things I am needing to do... [more inside]

Invoicing & accounting software / methods for freelance & small biz

I'm currently looking at adopting Freshbooks or Kashoo, and would be interested in experiences with either, or other recommendations. Context: I'm a few years into freelancing (across a few different industries) and I'm working on improving my accounting, with the goals of easier tax time, smoother day-to-day operations, and better information about cashflow and budgeting. Right now I use Toggl for time tracking, and Mint for expense tracking and budgeting; I like Toggl but I'm not married to it, and Mint is starting to drive me absolutely nuts. I do invoicing and bookkeeping manually. Also welcome would be general tips on bookkeeping and accounting for small businesses / freelancers. I'm on a Mac, in Canada.

Accounting firm in need of client management software

Background - I work for a small accounting firm of six people right now. We have 1 cpa, 2 staff accountants (Im one, currently working on my CPA) and the rest is bookkeeping/admin staff. We just hired a new administrative assistant because of the growth we experienced this year and plan on hiring more CPAs in the future. With this growth comes the need to be more organized, no longer is it possible for my boss to keep track of where every project is, how far it is along and who it is assigned to it. So we need some sort of well known software. (Nothing terribly obscure please) [more inside]

Is it possible to open a QuickBooks 2006 company file in QuickBooks 2004?

Is it possible to open a QuickBooks 2006 company database file in an older version of QuickBooks, namely QuickBooks 2004? Or is there a way to downgrade a 2006 database to a version that would open in 2004? Basically need to open a new database in an old version. Is it possible?
