How do i convert from quickbooks online to 2020 quickbooks desktop for mac

Hi adairridge,

 

Converting data from QuickBooks Online to QuickBooks Desktop MAC 2020 needs to transfer the file first from QBO to the QBDT window. Then, proceed converting the file from the QBDT window to QBDT MAC 2020. 

 

Before doing so, make sure you've checked this article to learn what data can and cannot be converted to the Desktop version. That said, there isn't a way to move the file from QBO directly to QBDT MAC 2020.

 

Once reading the article, you can follow these steps to export your QBO file.

  1. Click the Gear icon.
  2. Select Export Data under Tools.
  3. Select Learn more under Moving to QuickBooks Desktop?.
  4. Click Learn more under Download company data.
  5. To proceed, follow the onscreen instructions.

 

You can check this article for the detailed steps on how you can do it. Then, you can use our QuickBooks Desktop trial to important data you've got from QuickBooks Online. 

 

If you need further assistance, please give us a call so that we can assist you further when doing the conversion. 

 

  1. Click the Help icon in your QuickBooks account.
  2. Click the Contact us button.
  3. Enter a short description of your concern something like "converting QBO file to QBDT ".
  4. Click the Let's Talk button.
  5. Select the Get a callback button.

 

Tag me if directly if you have additional concerns. I'd be glad to help you more with QuickBooks.

Since I can't transfer QBs Online directly to QBs desktop for MAC, if I buy 2020 desktop for MAC and cancel Online, will I still have access to Online to access historical data from 2019 and before?

Thank you for getting back, @adairridge.

 

Once you'll cancel your QuickBooks Online (QBO) service, you have the read-only access of your data for one year after the cancellation date. If you wish to access them beyond that period, I encourage you to export or print your data before canceling the subscription.

 

For your reference about exporting data from QBO, you can check out these articles:
