PAYROLL DEPARTMENT: I just subscribed to Desktop Payroll. I had an Online Payroll subscription How do I get all of my payroll transactions transerred over?

Hi there, jullene-cocozza. 

 

There are limitations when we convert data from QuickBooks Online to QuickBooks Desktop due to feature differences. QuickBooks Desktop have multiple payroll options than the Online version.

 

If we want to transfer just the payroll information, we can only export our list of employees. For our paychecks, we can enter them as a prior payroll and enter tax payments as historical data.

 

Here's how to export employee list from Online to Desktop:

  1. Log in to qbo.intuit.com
  2. Click the Gear icon and select Export data.
  3. From the Lists tab, toggle the correct Date and Employees
  4. Click Export to Excel

Then, we can import the information into desktop. I also have an article that can help us through our payroll setup

 

Let me know if you need more help. Thanks!
