My client is using 2017 Pro, I am on 2018. Can they import JE's if I export and send the file going back a year (as in Accountan'ts copy)?


Hello there, vstrange

I’ll share what I know about importing of journal entries using Accountant’s copy.

Ideally, you should open an Accountant's copy using the same version or year of QuickBooks Desktop.

Since the gap between your client and your QuickBooks is just one year, you can still open and work on the Accountant’s Copy. They can also import journal entries after you send the Accountant’s Copy to them.

If you created changes using features that aren’t available in your client’s version, the changes won’t be imported to the client’s file.

You can go through the Accountant's copy overview article for more information.

This will get you going, vstrange. I’m here anytime you need further assistance while working in Accountant’s Copy. 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.
