How can I acquire my Validation Code to register my Quickbooks Pro Desktop 2013?

Since the COVID-19 there doesn't seem to be anyone available by phone and the cat option is not available for me. Is there another way?

Hi, @Alfoster1.

 

Let me help share insights about your concern in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

If you're referring to reactivating your payroll services this will require a service key specific to your EIN number. I'd suggest reaching out to our Customer Support Team. They have the necessary tools to access your account details and generate the key for you. 

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Click Help located at the top or press the F1 key.
  2. Choose QuickBooks Desktop Help.
  3. Enter a brief description of your issue and click Continue.
  4. Click Message an Agent.

 

Due to the outbreak, we have limited staffing and have reduced our hours to 6:00 A.M. -6:00 P.M. PT Mon-Fri. Rest assured, we will resume normal hours as soon as possible.  

 

Also, I'm adding this article on how to renew or reactivate your QuickBooks Desktop Payroll subscription.

 

Feel free to get back to us for any additional questions. I'm here to help. Take good care.

I just moved all my work over to a new computer. Installed QB 2013 that I purchased from a local retailer, entered the license number and product code, and then I called the 1-800 number to get the validation code. None of my current email addresses nor my 10 year old phone number match what Intuit has on file. The CS agent just keeps repeating that I have to give her the correct email, which I don't seem to have (over and over). I ask for a supervisor, she says there are none available. I offered to send her a picture of my disc and the license number with the hologram, she doesn't care and in the end just hung up on me!

 

I own a licensed copy of QB 2013 and Intuit refuses to let me use MY software. Other than breaking up a monopolist anti-competitive company does anyone know how to find this validation code so I can use my software and go back to work?

Hello there, @WhatAPain1.

 

Let me share these insights about your concern in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT). QuickBooks Desktop 2013 version is no longer supported and can no longer be updated.

I suggest reaching our customer support team again. If this is the first time you've installed a QBDT product or you don’t have the previous version. This way, they can check if they can generate a validation code for 2013. 

 

If it's not your first time installing QBDT, then you'll have to provide the email address you used to register the program.

 

Here's how: 

  1. In QuickBooks Desktop, click the Help menu. 
  2. Choose QuickBooks Desktop Help.
  3. Click the Contact us link at the bottom of the new window.
  4. Select Install as the topic.
  5. Scroll down and choose how you want to contact us. 

 

In case you can't access the Help menu, you can try pressing F1 to pull up the Have a question? window. Also, you can go to this page to contact us if the Help menu or F1 doesn't work: 

 

  1. Go to https://help.quickbooks.intuit.com/en_US/contact
  2. Choose QuickBooks Desktop as the product, then click the Continue as a guest button.
  3. Select Enterprise as the version.
  4. Choose Install as the topic, then choose how you want to contact us. 

Keep in touch if you need any more assistance with this, or there's something else I can do for you. I've got your back. Stay safe always.

@Mundus 

You have to call and contact Support to ask the code. If they didn't acknowledge your ownership, consider buying a new license of QB 2020. For Pro 1 user with a one time license, you may purchase it for less than $200.

Thanks for joining the conversation, @scottysh. It's my priority that you're able to merge the information from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online.

 

To get started, let’s run the Verify and Rebuild Data Utility Tool before you convert your QBDT file to resolve any data integrity issues. Always create a backup to avoid any accidental data loss before performing the following steps.

 

  1. In QuickBooks Desktop go to the Window tab and select Close All to close all opened windows.
  2. Then, go to the File menu and choose Utilities
  3. Click Verify Data.  
  4. Fix any error message if it says "Your data has lost integrity", continue to Rebuild Data.
  5. Navigate to the File menu, pick Utilities, then click Rebuild Data
  6. Confirm to back up your company file. 
  7. Choose where you want to save your backup, then tap OK.
  8. Wait until the backup is finished so the Rebuild Data utility tool starts. 
  9. Hit OK if Rebuild has completed

 

For more details about the process, please see this article: Verify and Rebuild Data in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

 Once done, import your QBDT company file to QBO again. Follow the steps below:

 

  1. Sign in as an admin to the company file you want to import.
  2. On your keyboard, press Ctrl 1 to open the Product Information window.
  3. Press Ctrl Q, then select OK to display the export window.
  4. On the export window, select Get started.
  5. Sign in as an admin to your QuickBooks Online company.
  6. Select the Choose online company▼ dropdown, then select the QuickBooks Online company you want to be replaced by your company file.
  7. Select Continue.
  8. Enter Agree in the text field, then select Replace.
  9. Select Yes, go ahead and replace the data, then select Replace.

 

You can refer to this article for the step-by-step guide: Move your QuickBooks Desktop file to QuickBooks Online.

 

Also, there are things you need to expect when you migrate from QBDT to QBO. To know more about how your books convert (i.e., Chart of Accounts, documents, and invoices), you can refer to this article: What to expect when you switch from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online.

 

If the steps above don't work you can directly contact our Customer Support Team. Just follow the steps shared by my colleague above, or click this link to contact them outside QuickBooks: Contact Support.

 

To make sure you get prioritized on your concern. Please check out our support hours and contact us at a time convenient: ​​​​​​Support hours and types.

 

I'm adding these articles on how to fix errors when you convert the files and user guides that will help you with your task: 

 

 

If you meant something else, please let me know. Any further details that you can provide will be much appreciated. I'm always ready to assist.
