It's great to see you here in the Community, srix.

I’d be delighted to provide you with information about the time zone used in QuickBooks Online.

The dates and time in QuickBooks Online servers are under Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Here are the factors that affect the date displayed on your transactions and reports:

  • Daylight savings
  • Travel to a different time zone
  • Your computer's date and time are correct but do not match the server.

To set your computer’s date and time, here’s how:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Choose Time & Language.
  3. Select Date & time.
  4. Click Change.
  5. Set the correct date and time.
  6. Click OK.
  7. To change the time zone, click the drop-down arrow and select the correct time zone

Once completed, you also need to ensure that the internet time settings are correct.

Here’s how:

  1. Click Date and Time.
  2. Choose Set the time and date.
  3. Select Internet Time tab.
  4. Choose Change settings..
  5. Make sure there is a check mark in the Synchronize with an internet time server box.

If you’re still having difficulty setting the time zone in your computer, I’d recommend reaching out to our Customer Care team. They have the tools to access your account securely and further assist you using remote-access.

You can always get back here and leave a comment if you have follow-up questions. I'm always here to help.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
