Data Migration from Quickbooks Accountant Edition 2017 to QBO

Thank you for reaching out to the Community, Powerrush. I know you want to migrate your QuickBooks Account nt Edition 2017 data to a localized version of QuickBooks Online. Unfortunately, there is no direct way to migrate data from QuickBooks Accountant Edition 2017 US, Canada, or UK Desktop to a version of QuickBooks Online.


QuickBooks Online is designed to cater to specific regions, and the data structures and functionalities may differ between different versions. As a result, QuickBooks does not support direct migration from one localized version to another.


However, there is a workaround that you can consider. You can explore third-party apps that specialize in data conversion and migration. These apps can help convert your data from QuickBooks Accountant Edition 2017 to a format compatible with QuickBooks Online South Africa.


I recommend researching third-party app providers to discuss your specific requirements about converting your data to QuickBooks Online South Africa. You can visit this link for the App Store: App Store.


 For more details, check out this article (they are US-based articles since there's no Desktop version outside of the USA, UK, and Canada): What To Expect When You Switch From QuickBooks Desktop To QuickBooks Online.


For further assistance, I recommend checking out our QuickBooks Online guide. It contains additional resources to help you get started.


Please let me know if you need assistance selecting a third-party app or have any other questions or concerns. I'm here to support you through this transition. Have a great day!
