When Switching QuickBooks Editions Become a Dire Need

Brandon, MB -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/14/2019 -- QuickBooks international versions come customized to that specific region. For example, every version of QuickBooks such as the Canadian, British and Australian divisions uniquely inhibit the tax calculation needs of each region, such as Canada's GST, HST or PST sales tax, European VAT for the United Kingdom edition and Australia's GST sales tax.

The QuickBooks UK edition also includes support for Irish and South African VAT. The US version of QuickBooks does not handle VAT so data files need to be converted to the UK version to handle VAT filings.

When it comes to adapting to the sales tax of the region, and if businesses operate in more than one country, or if a company file was set up in a different nationality of QuickBooks – such as having a main office in Canada and a division in the USA with its own QuickBooks file – an international edition conversion may be necessary.

"Because the US version of QuickBooks won't read a file from the Canadian version it is difficult to switch the file to the appropriate software, John Rocha, E-Tech's Technical Services Manager said.

Third party services allows for the conversion between different nationalities of the software in order to bring both versions into sync.

E-Tech's conversion service allows you to convert files from QuickBooks US to the UK version so VAT can be handled. This works for companies in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and other countries that have introduced VAT filing requirements.

Payroll checks will be transferred as regular checks with full line item details. Usernames are not transferred from the secondary files to the primary file and users would need to be re-created after the merge.

Following an initial evaluation, the cost and processing time is determined.
