Importing Data from Quikbooks Desktop

Currently I'm using Quickbooks Desktop for my company, if I wanted to start using QB online version, do I need to move all my data one by one into QB online version ? Or can I sync it with my QB desktop straight away?

Importing Data from Quikbooks Desktop

Good day, Aaron0502. Thanks for coming to the Community to get the best solutions for your QuickBooks needs.  


We can convert your company data from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online within the first 60 days of your QuickBooks Online company start date. However, it's only available for QuickBooks US and UK versions. When you import your Desktop file will replace your Online file and overwrite any existing information. Data that exported after 60 days can no longer be purge nor restored which will generate a new company file.


To learn more about the process of converting QuickBooks Desktop file to QuickBooks Online, please visit this article: Convert QuickBooks Desktop file to QuickBooks Online.


However, if you wish to export the file you can sign up for QuickBooks Online free trial. This enables you to transfer your file from QuickBooks Desktop then select the trial account for QuickBooks Online. Also,to learn more about the system requirements for QBO and its features to help you get started, visit this article:


I’m looking forward to the success of the conversion process in QuickBooks. As always, Community is continually open 24/7. You can post here If you have other questions in QuickBooks. Just click the reply button. Have a great day, and stay safe!
