Can I migrate a company from one account to another?

My bookkeeper wants to sandbox the new company before we go live. Is it possible to migrate the company from his account to ours?


Hello there, facebook1,

Right now, migrating your online company to another one isn't possible in QuickBooks. However, you can import list of information to your QuickBooks Online (QBO) account. 

Once ready, kindly follow the steps below to successfully import your customers, suppliers, accounts, and products and services data files:

  1. Go to the Gear icon, then select Import Data.
  2. Select the data you want to import (e.g Customers).
  3. Click Browse.
  4. Select the file, then click Open.
  5. Click Next, then follow the instructions to complete the process.

Perform the same steps to import other data to QBO.

Meanwhile, you also have the option to start your company from scratch and manually enter all the information needed.

I'd also recommend looking for a third-party app that can help you make the migration possible. Just contact the third-party app of your choice to guide you with the process.

Please let me know if there's anything else I can help you with, please feel free to let me know. I'll be glad 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.
