Before you begin:

Converting your data from Quicken to Quickbooks is a complex process and if you require assistance, you will need to contact QuickBooks Support. Quicken Support is unable to assist with this process.


  • Quicken to QuickBooks data conversion is a one-way conversion. Once a QuickBooks conversion has been performed on your Quicken data, the data can no longer be opened in Quicken. 
  • You should make a backup of your Quicken data prior to any conversion or perform the conversion on a copy of your Quicken data. 
  • QuickBooks can only convert Quicken for Windows files. If you are a Quicken for Mac user, you will need to convert to a Quicken for Windows file before converting to QuickBooks. 
  • It is not possible to convert QuickBooks data to Quicken. It is only possible to convert Quicken data to Quickbooks.
  • Because of some of the challenges that can come with converting Quicken data to Quickbooks, it may be easier to start from a new file when switching to QuickBooks.

To convert your data
