How to import a QuickBooks desktop backup company file to QuickBooks Online?

It’s not possible to import a QuickBooks desktop backup file directly into QuickBooks Online.

If you only have a backup and don’t have QuickBooks desktop installed on your computer, you will first need to install a trial version of QuickBooks on your computer.

Follow the steps below:

  1. Download and install a QuickBooks Trial:

Windows Desktop Trial Link: http://http-download.intuit.com/http.intuit/Downloads/2012/Latest/Setup_QuickBooksPro2012.exe (License # 7482-8847-2621-492 / Product # 204-992)

Mac Desktop Trial Link: http://http-download.intuit.com/http.intuit/Downloads/2014/Latest/QuickBooksProMac2014Trial.dmg

  1. Skip (or exit) the “getting started” interview.
