Scaling from QuickBooks Canada to QuickBooks US or UK without a hitch

Brandon, MB, 16th March 2022, ZEXPRWIRE, One major obstacle that most businesses face having operations in multiple countries face is converting to the specific QuickBooks edition of that country.

If a business that has their main office in the UK may also have a division in the USA that has its own QuickBooks file. If the US version was used instead of the UK version, a switch to the UK version may be necessary since the US version of QuickBooks won’t read a file from the UK version. This income tax estimates feature, coupled with the ability to e-file VAT returns, gives QuickBooks some of the best tax planning support we’ve seen in any accounting software – and sets it apart from many of its rivals. It’s a powerful, easy to use, and easy to understand solution that is massive plus for anyone running a small business.

This is required specifically when dealing with currency and taxes relating to the country and that are unique to that version of the software. This can be demonstrated with the Canadian and UK versions of QuickBooks that are configured to use VAT. This feature is known as the sales tax for the US version.  The US version of QuickBooks does not handle VAT and data files need to be converted to the UK version to handle VAT filings.

The QuickBooks UK edition also includes support for Irish and South African VAT. One of QuickBooks’ best features is its tax planning. If VAT returns are submitted, then the file could be prepared without ever leaving QuickBooks, while anyone struggling with a self-assessment tax return can access combined income tax/National Insurance estimates that break down all the vital info.

In the US, QuickBooks is the accounting software of choice for more than 29 million small businesses with over 80% market share offering diverse products designed to help both small and large businesses.

QuickBooks Repair Pro’s conversion service easily converts files from QuickBooks Canada to US or the UK version. With this conversion, both versions are brought in sync.

Usernames, however, are not transferred from the secondary files to the primary file, and therefore would have to be recreated after the merge. Data files with sales tax items and sales tax groups that were modified after their initial use may not be transferred correctly since QuickBooks does not store historical rate changes. Attachments are not transferred because QuickBooks does not support the transfer of attachments.
