This article contains helpful information if you'e looking to import and convert data from QuickBooks Desktop and Sage.
If you're looking to move your QuickBooks Desktop data to QuickBooks Online without the assistance of Intuit Data Services, see Import data into QuickBooks Online from QuickBooks Desktop instead.
How does the process work?
How long will it take to transfer & import my data?
We'll aim to complete your conversion within three to five working days of receiving your data file, although it is often much faster than that.
I've already signed up for QuickBooks Online. Can I move my data to that account?
Yes. If you have an existing QuickBooks Online file you would like us to move your data in to, please invite us as an administrator to that file. Please create a data migration request here and we'll send you the steps to add us in your company file.
How will my business data be protected?
As long as you use Dataswitcher to upload your data, it'll be protected using the industry-standard SSL encryption. Data is removed from our servers promptly after you've uploaded, and we store a copy on our local servers during conversion. Post conversion we move your data to secure offline storage where it's encrypted. It's best practice to also suggest you have a password on your source data file.

I did not request conversion of some old data but I can see it in the QuickBooks Online file
The data importing process will transfer all compatible data existing in your provided file to QuickBooks Online. We advise you to keep a backup of relevant data to have a history of transactions prior to the conversion date.
