Import payroll IIF file to QBO

We just recently switched to QBO from Desktop.  Can I still import my IIF payroll file or do I have to manually enter in the transactions?  If I can import it, how?

Re: Import payroll IIF file to QBO

Hi there, @ACordell.


Let me share some insights about importing payroll IFF files in QuickBooks Online (QBO). 


Currently, QBO doesn't have an option to importing IFF files. What you need to do is, manually enter the payroll transactions. 


You can follow the detailed steps on this article on how to enter your payroll history in QBO: Set up a prior payroll
