Transferring (export and import) payroll from QB Desktop to another QB desktop
We currently have two, separate QB Desktop Pro 2016 instances that I want to "merge" into one. Desktop instance #1 has only payroll and desktop #2 has no payroll but the rest of the financial info. I want to merge QB #1 into QB #2. Assuming the GL accounts and payroll items are mirrored in each QB, is there a seamless way to accomplish this and keep the payroll history intact?
I also recommend getting in touch with your accountant to verify if they have the QuickBooks Desktop After-the-fact payroll. This allows them to efficiently enter, verify and adjust paychecks all from a single spreadsheet-style screen.
That should help you merge your accounts, @Tdub. Let me know if there's anything else you need or if you have follow up questions. Have a good one!
