These prerequisites include: 

  1. Download the Bank & Credit Card Statements. 
  2. Prepare your sales and expenses in an Excel file if it is spread across multiple files.

  4. Purchase Orders
  5. Bank Transactions (Deposits)
  6. Master Data Migration: Chart of Accounts, Customers, Vendors, Products & Services, Employees
  7. Journal Entries will be used to bring balances & adjustments if needed.


  1. Only reconciled account periods (months) will be migrated.
  2. Multi-currency transactions will be converted into Home currency and migrated into QuickBooks.
  3. The detailed history of Closed Transactions is not migrated ( like customers, product details, etc ) 
  4. Inventory Details / Adjustments are not part of this migration.
