I need to get my client's last six months of checking account transactions. I don't want to have my client's login info. I am not their accountant I am doing tax resolution work. Is there a way to get all of the transactions downloaded into QBO without having the login info? Or must I use the desktop version of QB?
I'd be happy to share with you the steps on how to download your client's account transactions in QuickBooks Online.
You can manually bring the transaction into QuickBooks Online using a WebConnect file. You can download the last 90 days of transactions using this feature.
Download transactions from your bank's website:
Sign in to your bank's website.
Follow your bank's online process to download your transactions to your computer.
Depending on your bank's available features, choose transactions from specific or multiple accounts, or select a date range for transactions. If you're adding historical transactions for a connected account, make sure you specify a date range earlier than the last 90 days. If you overlap date ranges, you may end up with duplicate transactions, which you must then delete or exclude. Because QuickBooks Online only supports files sizes up to 350 KB (kilobytes), if you're downloading a lot of transactions, you may need to download smaller date ranges.
Choose a supported file type for the download file. If you attempt to upload a file in an unsupported format, you will receive an error message.
Note the name of the file you downloaded, and the location you downloaded it to so you can easily find it to upload.
