"I have been using QB for the past 3 years and switched to QB online a year ago. The transition was easy. I have already recommended this to a friend for his business and he started using QB 6 weeks ago.”

"Online version is a breeze - reliable never goes down constantly being improved. Don't bother with the desktop version (which was good anyway) - data all backed up - perfect. Invoicing online saves time and efforts..."

Frequently asked questions
From which versions of QuickBooks Desktop can I move data?
You can move your data from QuickBooks 2012 and later versions.
You can only move your data from QuickBooks Pro or Premier (with or without payroll). It is not possible to move data from SimpleStart or QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions.
If any of these limitations apply to you, please call us free on 0808 168 4256. We'll be happy to explore alternative ways of moving your data to QuickBooks Online.
What data will be moved to QuickBooks Online?
We'll copy over all your core accounts data. This includes all transactions, account balances, and your chart of accounts. We'll also copy contact details for suppliers and customers, as well as their current balances.
Please note that these items will not be transferred:
• Payroll data. If you use QuickBooks Desktop to run payroll, your payroll data will not be copied to QuickBooks Online. It's easy to transfer this information yourself, and we've put together a separate guide that explains how.
• Stock quantities. If you currently use QuickBooks Desktop to track stock levels, please call us on 0808 168 4256 before moving your data to QuickBooks Online.
• Memorised reports. QuickBooks Online allows you to customise reports, just like QuickBooks Desktop. However, memorised reports from QuickBooks Desktop do not convert, so you'll need to recreate your memorised reports in QuickBooks Online.
• Templates for invoices and other forms. Just as QuickBooks Desktop has templates for invoices and other forms you can customise, so does QuickBooks Online (and they look great). But you’ll need to set them up yourself once your data has been copied over.
• Recurring transactions. QuickBooks Online can handle recurring transactions, but they will not be imported automatically. Once your data has been copied to QuickBooks Online, you can make transactions recurring with the Make Recurring option.
What should I check before moving our data?
To make sure your data is moved correctly, we recommend re-sorting some lists, printing some reports and verifying your data in QuickBooks Desktop. This will allow you to check your data has copied correctly.
To see full instructions, please read our guide.

Can I cancel QuickBooks Online if I want?
Sure. There's no minimum contract, so you can cancel whenever you like. You don't even have to call us — just select theCancel Your Subscription option within your account settings.
Your account will be cancelled there and then.
If I decide I don't like QuickBooks Online, can I go back to QuickBooks Desktop?
Yes. When you move to QuickBooks Online, we create a copy of your data. The company file on your computer remains intact so you can always go back.
However, keep in mind that it's not possible to move data from QuickBooks Online back to QuickBooks Desktop. If you do decide to stop using QuickBooks Online, you will need to enter recent transactions into QuickBooks Desktop.
Will I ever have to pay extra to update QuickBooks Online?
No. The regular monthly fee includes ongoing updates, so you'll always be using the latest version.
We add new features to QuickBooks Online several times a year. We also make smaller updates to address feedback we've received about the software.
If a major new feature has been added, you'll see a message about it when you sign in to QuickBooks Online.
Will it take long for me to learn QuickBooks Online?
You should get up to speed with QuickBooks Online nice and fast. We've put a lot of effort into creating an interface that's simple to use — and you can always call us if you need any pointers.
I have more questions. Can I speak to someone?
Of course. Give us a call on 0808 168 4256.
