File Compatibility Between QuickBooks Tiers


As you know, QuickBooks comes in several different flavors depending on your business’ size, unique accounting needs, and a host of other factors. Each version has greater functionality than the one below it.

But, what happens when you want to move up a tier in your QuickBooks use? Scott Gregory had an excellent article last week that looks at compatibility for your QuickBooks file between different versions of the program.

Gregory gives greater detail, but the long and short of it is this:

  • It’s relatively easy to migrate from QuickBooks Pro to QuickBooks Premier or QuickBooks Enterprise.
  • It’s also relatively easy to migrate from QuickBooks Premier to QuickBooks Pro or QuickBooks Enterprise.
  • However, if you’re going to “downgrade” from QuickBooks Enterprise to Pro or Premier, you’re going to need a third-party tool.
