We're glad you came here for support, jkorolewski.

 

Let me help you transfer QuickBooks for Mac to your new MacBook.

 

Dragging the applications folder for QuickBooks will only copy the application itself. In this case, you'll need to install the application to your new MacBook to include the company files and settings.

 

Here's an article that provides a detailed steps on how to install QuickBooks for Mac: Install and set up QuickBooks Mac Desktop.

 

For more information about QuickBooks Desktop for Mac features, you can check out this link: https://qblittlesquare.com/.

Once I get Quickbooks installed on the new Mac, do I simply copy and move the company files to the new Mac? Will that have all my data and setting? Are there other files I need to copy as well?

Hi, jkorolewski.

 

Yes!  After double clicking the .dmg file, you’ll need to drag the company file with the .qbxxxx extension to your desired folder. Drag also the Attached Documents Library folder (If you have some) to the same folder where the company file is. Once saved, go to File then choose Open Company.

 

This will restore all your data and settings to your new MacBook. For more information on restoring other types of company file, please check this article: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/community/Getting-Started/Restore-a-backup-dmg-in-QuickBooks-Mac/m-p/1....
