Move your data to QuickBooks Online

Find answers to frequently asked questions about moving your data to QuickBooks Online.

In QuickBooks Online, you can transfer data from your previous accounting program so it's easier to get started.

If you want to move from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online, get more help here.

To start the conversion process, you need the following:

  • Your details
  • Your previous data file. Note: If your file is password protected, include your login credentials.
  • Your QuickBooks Online account. Note: If you don’t have an account, we can create it for you.

Once we receive your data file, the conversion takes 2-4 business days.

Intuit Data Services offers to move your data free of cost.For a limited time, it is completely free to transfer up to two financial years of data to QuickBooks Online, thanks to Intuit. We will create a new QuickBooks Online account for you if you don’t have one already, for which you’ll have to pay the subscription cost per month. This is paid directly to Intuit, the maker of QuickBooks, and not to Dataswitchers.

Currently, we offer conversion services for the software versions listed below:

  • Sage 50 Accounting 2010 - 2016 (Beta)
  • Xero
  • Acomba
