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:
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!
