When converting a new client from desktop to online the only company option is the firm account, How to see the others?

Hi there, malisegarcia.

How are you so far? I'm here to provide some insights about converting your client's company file from desktop to online.

In order to successfully convert the file, you have to log into your client's QBO account, not on your QBOA account. This way, you'll be able to see the new account.

For your guide, you may visit this article: Convert QuickBooks Desktop file to QuickBooks Online (US only) which has attached screenshots.

There you have it. Please let me know if you need anything else aside from this. Have a good one.

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.
