Migrating from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online

May 27, 2021

QuickBooks Desktop discontinued – move to QuickBooks online as an alternative 

When the QuickBooks Desktop (QBD) version is discontinued on 31 January 2023, so Intuit can focus on QuickBooks Online (QBO) that will remain available for QB users. 

If you are a QBD user in the UK, you must migrate your accounting data to another accounting system or QuickBooks Online by the above discontinuation deadline. 

Difference Between QuickBooks Online and Desktop 

QuickBooks Online is different from QuickBooks Desktop in a number of ways. For example, you will need to install QuickBooks Desktop to your computer and use it in your office, whereas QuickBooks Online is a cloud-based program that is accessible via a browser and internet connection anytime and anywhere. In addition to this, QuickBooks Online can integrate with other online applications via the QuickBooks Marketplace that gives it additional functionality to perform other business processes. 

Is QuickBooks online better than QuickBooks desktop? 

This is really a matter of opinion but the QuickBooks website has a side-by-side comparison of QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Online. 

Moving from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online 

There is no easy migration path for switching from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online. To migrate, you must import and save your critical information along with the opening and closing balances – then export the files to QuickBooks Online. 

If you are a QBD user looking to switch, you can avoid this intricate step-by-step QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online conversion process by seeking the help of an expert.
