Converting from Desktop to QBO

If you have Quickbooks Desktop and convert to Quickbooks Online would you:

A) Be able to transfer back to Quickbooks Desktop?

 

B) What occurs to your data if say you close the business - is there a way to save the data?

Re: Converting from Desktop to QBO

Hi there, 

 

You've come to the right place for help. I'll be happy to answer your questions so you can get back to doing what you love. 

 

Once you've migrated your data over the QuickBooks Online, you'll have to manually transfer your data back to Desktop using .CSV files. Let me know if you need further assistance with this. If you decide to close your business/cancel  your QBO account, you'll have Read-Only access to your account for one year. After the year is up, all the data will be deleted. 

 

If you need more info, don't hesitate to reach back to me. I got your back.

hi @mcbbsinc ,

It is still challenging to switch back your data from QBO Non-US version to QB Desktop. You may need a 3rd party data migration tools. If you are using QuiciBooks Desktop now and need to access your file by internet, you may consider hosting it on your own premise with a 3rd party solution.

I posted data into QBO in the trial version and i need it to be  converted to the subscribed company account on online account. Can this be done?

@Rahim2 ,

Utilize the trial period of a 3rd party backup tool and use the Copy feature to migrate the data between your accounts.
