Hi, I just started using Quickbooks Self Employed, and It says it's tracking 2019. I need it to do 2018 as well, Is this possible?


Glad to see you here, seoron.

Let me provide you the information that you need about tracking in QuickBooks Self-Employed.

Are you referring to your 2018 transactions? If yes, it's possible in QBSE. You can manually enter those transactions and or import it to your account through a CSV file. Then, you’d review those transactions by filtering the date and set it to Last year (1st screenshot).The system will also calculate estimated taxes for your self-employment. 

Here's how to manually add a transaction:

  1. Go to your Transactions tab.
  2. Click the Add transaction button.
  3. Provide the necessary information for this transaction. 
  4. Click Save

I've added a screenshot for your reference. Check this add a new transaction in QuickBooks Self-Employed article for more information.

That should help you track your data from 2018. If you have any other questions or would like me to clarify anything else in adding your transactions, don't hesitate to leave a comment below. I am always glad to help in any way I can.​ Take care and enjoy the weekend.

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.
