Is it possible to duplicate a company

Good afternoon, @jharder.

 

Since the Online version is cloud based, it's constantly being backed up, so you don't have to worry about creating a backup company file. With that being said, Company files in the online version can neither be downloaded nor saved on a computer, so it isn't possible to create a duplicate company at this time.

 

Here's an article that has helpful information: Do I need to back up my data with QuickBooks Online?

 

QuickBooks Online integrates with a ton of third-party apps that may offer the functionality you're looking for. Check them out at the link here: QuickBooks Apps.

 

If you're using API, we've got another community where you can post more questions about it. You can go to this website and choose General Questions: https://help.developer.intuit.com.

 

If you have another questions about creating a duplicate company or any other QuickBooks related questions, I'm always here to help.

Is it possible to duplicate a company

Hi sorry, I should have asked this as well. What about moving from QBO to QBDT then upload from QBDT to QBO as the new company??

Chiming in to share more details about data conversion, jharder.

 

We can move your QBO data to QBDT. Though, there are details that can't be converted because of feature differences. The same goes with exporting data from QBDT to QBO. This means, there'll be missing information when you keep on converting your company data.

 

You'll want to check these articles. These will show us the the limitations when converting to a different version of QuickBooks.

After migrating, I suggest running a Profit and Loss and Balance Sheet report from both versions, then compare them. This is to make sure that the transferred data are accurate.

 

Here are additional articles you can read. These will serve as your guides in migrating your data:

Post again if you need more clarifications. I'm looking forward to assisting you again.

@jharder 

There are two options to duplicate your company data

1. First option: explore this tools to copy data between QBO accounts. Once you are ready to proceed, open a new account.
