Payroll Journal Entries

I have a client that merged with another company.  They both use QBO.  I have been  exporting and then importing via TrasactionPro all lists and transacations.  I have run into a problem with payroll.  The surviving entity does not use QB Payroll, but the old entity does.  How do I get the payroll entries into the surviving entity?

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Payroll Journal Entries

Thank you for contacting us, YvonneI.


You can only import or export lists of accountsproducts and servicesvendors, and customers in QuickBooks Online (QBO).


You need to manually transfer payroll entries into the surviving entity. To do so, use the payroll reports in QBO and export them to Excel. This way, you'll have a visual copy with the correct details for your guidance.


Let me show you how:

  1. Go to Reports from the left menu.
  2. Select the exact reports you need under Payroll. You can also refer to this article: Run payroll reports to choose one.
  3. Click the Share drop-down menu, then pick Export to Excel.

Feel free to read through this article, Move your lists for more details. This will guide you through transferring data to the another QBO account.


If you need anything else, don't hesitate to leave a comment below. It's my pleasure to help you out.


Cheers to a safe and successful week ahead.
