I need to back up my QuickBooks online data to the QuickBooks desktop application.

I am unable to see "Moving to QuickBooks Desktop" and Making backup? Options in Export data tab.

I have enclosed the "Export data" page of my Quickbooks online.

Also want to add that I am using the QuickBooks Online platform from "Pakistan". Non US Version.

I need to back up my QuickBooks online data to the QuickBooks desktop application.

Welcome to the Community, mateen.


I appreciate for being detailed about your concern, especially for the screenshot.


Moving your QBO data directly to the desktop version is unavailable in your region. That’s why you’re unable to see the Moving to QuickBooks Desktop? option.


Also, the conversion process is only available in the following versions: US, UK, and CA. You can consider using a third-party app to help move your entire QBO file to the desktop program.


For additional resources, here’s a guide that will guide you on how to easily download the data entered into your file to your local hard drive: Export reports, lists, and other data.


Additionally, this article covers all the details of how your online data is converted to QBDT: Limitations when you convert from QuickBooks Online to QuickBooks Desktop.


Don't hesitate to post a comment below if you have questions or clarifications about QuickBooks. I’m always ready to answer them for you. Enjoy your day.

You need a migration tool to do so. i.e. TPExporter for Online, TPImporter for Desktop
