Changing QBO to free subscription (QBOA

Hi I have a QBO paid subscription that I initiated before I had a QBOA account.  I'd like to use the free account provided in my QBOA account.  How do I get my historical data into the QBOA account and terminate the subscription?  What problems or issues will I encounter

My pleasure to help get those historical data from QuickBooks Online (QBO) to your new Accountant (QBOA) version, Setsun.


You can export reports, vendors, customers, inventory, and chart of accounts' lists out of QBO and import them to QBOA. Just make sure to sign-in as an admin  to perform this process.


To export your list reports to Excel:

  1. Go to Reports from the left menu.
  2. Choose the statement you want to export.
  3. Customize the list report’s columns.
  4. Select each report below to check how their columns should be ordered.
  5. After saving your report, export it.
  6. Open the exported report in Excel.
  7. Delete rows 1-4 to remove your company name and report title from the sheet.
  8. Save your report again as Excel or CSV.

After you export and save your reports, you can import them to QBOA. For detailed steps on importing each list, see these articles:

To see how your Excel files should look, download and open these samples:

For your bank transactions, you'll want to connect your account to QuickBooks to download statements automatically. Or you can manually import older transactions.


Learn to check your progress on QBOA by using this checklist to download a printable PDF that you can reference.


Stay in touch if you need additional information about getting your historical data to QBOA. I'm always around to help.
