Can I upload a paper bank statement? My online banking does not go back to last tax year


Hello there, louisebensondanc

I’ll help ensure you’re able to download your bank statements for the last tax year.

Since you want to upload the paper bank statements, you’ll need to manually do it. For a faster way of downloading bank transactions, I’d suggest downloading a .QBO file from your bank website and import this file to QuickBooks Desktop. This is called the WebConnect process. 

Let’s first create a backup of the QuickBooks company file prior to any download or import so you can always start over if needed.

To download transactions via Web Connect, here’s how:

  1. Access your bank’s website through a web browser outside QuickBooks.
  2. Log in to your bank account using your customer ID and PIN or password.
  3. Download your online transaction activity via QuickBooks Web Connect (.QBO) file.
  4. Save the file on your computer.

To import .QBO files, here’s how:

  1. Go to the File menu at the top.
  2. Select Utilities, then choose Import. Select Web Connect Files.
  3. Select the .QBO file you saved in your computer, then select Open.
  4. Select Use an existing QuickBooks account or Create a new QuickBooks account.
  5. Choose Continue. You should see a dialogue box saying that the data has been successfully read into QuickBooks.
  6. Select OK.
  7. Go to the Bank Feeds Centre to review your transactions.

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.
