How to convert one QuickBooks account to another, e.g. Method for QuickBooks Desktop account to a Method for QuickBooks Online account.

Updated over a week ago

NOTE: On July 31, 2024, Intuit will stop selling QuickBooks Desktop in the United States. That includes:

  • QuickBooks Desktop Pro Plus

  • QuickBooks Desktop Premier Plus

  • QuickBooks Desktop Mac Plus

  • QuickBooks Desktop Enhanced Payroll

However, there will be no impact to existing users. Quickbooks Desktop will continue to receive security updates, product updates, and support, so you can continue to use it as you do today. Existing subscribers can also still renew after July 31st. Furthermore, Quickbooks Enterprise is not impacted.

If you do want to transition, here's how.

Method works on a 1-1 relationship with your QuickBooks file. However, there may be instances where you need to switch to a new QuickBooks file or account, such as when your current file is corrupted, outgrew your QuickBooks file, or when migrating from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online.

Method's Remapping tool allows you to retain your existing Method account and seamlessly connect with the new file or online account.

NOTE: Remapping is not yet available for Multi-tenant accounts. Please reach out to our support team for your options.

Benefits of Using the Remapping Tool:

  • Preserve Customizations: Keep all customizations you've made in Method and effortlessly connect them to your new QuickBooks file or account.

  • Flexible Data Syncing: Decide how much data you want to sync, keep, or delete with your new QuickBooks file or account.

  • Intact CRM Data: Your CRM data remains intact during the Remapping process.

Supported Remapping Options:

Method's Remapping tool currently supports the following remapping options:

  • QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Desktop: If you're transitioning to a new QuickBooks Desktop file, the remapping process is relatively straightforward and less time-consuming.

  • QuickBooks Online to QuickBooks Online: Again, the remapping process is simplified due to the same platform.

  • QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online: This remapping process is more complex and can take approximately 4-6 weeks to complete. Additionally, consulting work may be required to ensure a successful remapping.

    NOTE: Not all scenarios may be eligible for remapping, and such cases will be assessed by the Method support team.

Preparation and Validation:

Remapping is a meticulous process that requires time and attention to detail. Method's support team will guide you through a discovery call, where they will evaluate your account and validate the data to be migrated.

During this process, the support team will provide an estimate of the time required to complete the remapping.

For QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online remapping, it is essential to convert your QuickBooks Desktop account to a QuickBooks Online account using the QuickBooks Migration tool. Prior to undertaking this step, we recommend reaching out to our support team for further guidance.
