transfer data from desktop to online

I bought QBooks Accountant online under the name "NS Consultancy" with 12 additional licence for the companies I deal with.
Every month I update the companies on Desktop and then transfer to the Online, hence both systems have the same data. As you are aware, when you do the transfer from desktop to online, you get the list of companies from the online site and you have to choose which Company you want to select and transferred to. Yesterday when I tried to transfer one updated company from Desktop to Online, I was given only the Practice name "NS Consultancy" in the select field. All the other companies are missing. This is the first time that this happens to me.

I'm here to make sure you'll get the right support in transferring your Desktop data to QuickBooks Online (QBO), @9130348202281416.


When transferring your file from QuickBooks Desktop to Quickbooks Online, you'll need to make sure that the two platforms are in the same region/version. This way, the data will be transmitted successfully.
