A question not for the faint of heart.

I am one of the very first pro-advisers/users of QBO and as a result, when they switched platforms, I was not able to move my data to my "practice account.  This is not a big problem, except I cant access some of the features available to me and QBO is not able to upgrade my Company file/account.


So, I may be the first person in history who wants to export all my data from one QBO company to another.


I have tried rewind, but got to many errors.

I am working on trying Transaction pro, but it looks very laborious.  I dont want to have two company files so I am looking to move all my data over.


Any ideas?

Any service I can pay to do this?

A question not for the faint of heart.

I'm here to help you move your QuickBooks Online data, @andrewnewmancpa.


Currently, the option to transfer data from one QBO subscription to another is unavailable. As a workaround, you can convert it to QuickBooks Desktop and then import it back into QuickBooks Online, and you are correct.


For your reference, kindly follow the steps from these articles:

  1. Export and convert your QuickBooks Online data to QuickBooks Desktop
  2. Move your QuickBooks Desktop file to QuickBooks Online


After that, you may cancel the old QuickBooks Online account:


  1. Tap on the Gear icon.
  2. Choose Account and Settings.
  3. From the Billing & Subscription section, hit the cancel button.
  4. Continue until the account is canceled.
