Can you please help in the migration of data from my previous subscription to my new one?


Hello there, carburlei18,

Let's manually migrate using a .csv file to transfer data from your previous account to your new QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE) subscription.

To migrate your data (transactions and miles), you need to manually export  from your old account, then import it to the new one. 

Here's how to export transactions and trips in QBSE to a .csv file:

  1. Sign in to your account.
  2. Go to the Transactions or Miles menu.
  3. Select the Export icon at the upper right just above the Category or Type column.
  4. Transactions from the selected time range, account, search criteria, and other categories are exported.

Once done, check your Downloads folder. Your receipts are not exported. You need to download it directly from the transaction itself.

After exporting, you're now ready to import your .csv file to the new account. Here's how:

  1. Sign in to your account.
  2. Go to the Gear icon.
  3. Choose Imports.
  4. Select Import older transactions on the right of the account you want the transactions to belong to.
  5. Follow the instructions to finish importing.
  6. Click Import.

You can check the files after importing to make sure it imported successfully.

That'll get you going, carburlei18. By performing the steps above, you'll be able to export/import data to QBSE.

If you need further assistance, I'd recommend contacting our QuickBooks Self-Employed Support Team. They have the tools to check your account, and verify if the data was migrated successfully.

Should you need more help in data migration, let me know by leaving a comment below. I'm just around if you need 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.
