Paving the Way for a Successful Migration of Data from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online


Brandon, MB -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/13/2019 -- QuickBooks Online has gained its mark in the accounting arena. With a range of service tiers it grows with your business and can be customized with apps that can well integrate with this system.

Its growing popularity has brought on a good following that are now looking to abandon the desktop version of QuickBooks to settle with the Online version. "The conversion process comes with its set of tasks that make files Online worthy," John Rocha of E-Tech, said.

He added that QuickBooks Desktop data can only be imported within the first 60 days of the QuickBooks Online Company, you must be an Administrator user on your QuickBooks Online account, and be cognizant of the fact that QuickBooks Online does not support importing multi-currency or international versions of QuickBooks Desktop.

Other limitations include maintaining a QuickBooks file under 350,000 targets. You can determine how many targets you have in your file by pressing F2 or Ctrl+1 on your keyboard, and checking Total Targets under File Information. "If you exceed the size limit, you'll need to condense your file to successfully import it to QuickBooks Online," Rocha said.

In preparation for the migration of your data from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online, Rocha advised it is necessary to update your data, complete outstanding tasks – by making sure all bank accounts have been reconciled, payroll has been processed and all inventory adjustments have been made. "The third and most important step is backing up your data," Rocha added.

E-Tech's QuickBooks Online File Preparation Service prepares your data file to be under the file size limit of QuickBooks Online so it can be converted without any problems. This is done by removing the audit trail, optimizing and condensing your data file so it is within the limits to be exported to QuickBooks Online. The service will copy all your data into a brand new data file and will remove any corruption or data errors from the file.
