When preparing a QuickBooks Online (QBO) file for copy, there are certain things that can and cannot be imported. Rewind QBO Copy will automatically copy specific information from the originating file to the destination file.

In this guide, learn:

  • What can and cannot be copied through manual copy and Rewind Copy.

Manual File Migration

If you are manually uploading and downloading information, and not using Rewind QBO Copy, this is what can and cannot be imported.

What can be imported:

  • Customer details
  • Supplier details
  • Chart of accounts (not sub accounts)
  • Account balances
  • Customer balancers
  • Bills and open invoices
  • Supplier balances
  • Items lists*

*You will download these items lists out of the originating file and upload them to the destination file.

What cannot be imported:

  • Reconciliation reports
  • Recurring transitions, including recurring credit card charges from the merchant centre
  • Customized reports
  • Audit trail
  • Attachments
  • Payroll
  • Projects, locations, or classes

Using Rewind, these are the things that will automatically come over in the QBO file copy:

  • Customer details
  • Supplier details
  • Chart of accounts
  • Account balances
