How do we combine 2 different Company ID's (QBO with QBO Payroll)?

Prior bookkeeper set up QBO Payroll under our DBA. I imported files from QB Desktop to QBO as our Corp. Can we combine them? Or should I delete the Corp to start over? DBA is under Payroll and Corp is under QBO so they are not linked and have different Company ID's.

How do we combine 2 different Company ID's (QBO with QBO Payroll)?

Welcome aboard to the Online Community, ChordAccounting.


When you import your desktop data to QBO, the payroll data doesn’t automatically come over. You’ll have to manually enter them using the prior payroll method.


The option to combine two Company ID’s is unavailable at this time. This is because one subscription is per company file in QBO.


To keep your records in order, select which subscription you want to add the payroll information. Then, cancel the other one you’re not going to use.


Here’s how to unsubscribe:

 

  1. Go to Account and Settings under Your Company.
  2. Tap the Billing & Subscription menu to see the QuickBooks section.
  3. From there, choose Cancel subscription or Cancel online and then hit Continue to proceed.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the cancellation process.

When you’re ready, open the QBO file you want to enter the payroll entries. Then, follow the instructions to input the information in the Set up a prior payroll guide.


You can bookmark the Get Started Videos link for future reference. It contains online tutorials to help get acclimated to the product.


Let me know in the comment box if you have any other concerns or questions. I’m more than happy to answer them for you. Enjoy the rest of the day.

We already had QB Payroll Online (for last 3 years) so how to I import the QB Desktop data into that account? Or are you saying I can't?

 

If I can't import QB Desktop into my existing QB Payroll, how do I move my my historical Payroll data to the new QBO account so my books are accurate? (I currently run payroll in QB Payroll, then do journal entries in Desktop)

Thank you for getting back to us, @ChordAccounting.

 

You can migrate from QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) to QuickBooks Online (QBO) if the QBO account has no data yet. 

 

If you’d still like to enter your QBDT data to QBO, you can consider entering your payroll information through journal entries. Check this article for more information: Manually enter payroll paychecks in QuickBooks Online

 

Let me know if there’s anything that I can help. I’m always here to assist. Have a great rest of the day!
