Welcome to our comprehensive guide on importing accountant changes in QuickBooks 2015. Whether you're a seasoned user or just getting started, this step-by-step tutorial will walk you through the process in a seamless and easy-to-follow manner.

Step 1: Access the Company File

Begin by opening your QuickBooks 2015 software and navigating to the "File" menu. Select "Open or Restore Company" to access your company file.

Step 2: Create a Backup

Before making any changes, it's always a good practice to create a backup of your company file. This ensures that you can revert to the previous state if needed. Click on "File," then choose "Create Copy" and follow the prompts to save a backup.

Step 3: Communicate with Your Accountant

Ensure open communication with your accountant before proceeding. They will likely provide you with an Accountant's Copy (.QBX) file, which contains the changes they've made.

Step 4: Import Accountant Changes

  • From the "File" menu, select "Accountant's Copy" and then "Import Accountant's Changes."
  • Browse to the location where you saved the Accountant's Copy file and select it.
  • Click "Open" and follow the on-screen instructions to import the changes.

Step 5: Review and Merge Changes

Once the changes are imported, QuickBooks will prompt you to review and merge the modifications. Carefully go through each change, ensuring accuracy before proceeding.

Step 6: Set a Closing Date

To prevent accidental changes to the period covered by the Accountant's Copy, set a closing date. Navigate to "Edit," choose "Preferences," and then select "Accounting." Set the closing date and password, if desired.

Step 7: Share the Changes with Your Accountant

After reviewing and merging the changes, save the file and share it with your accountant. They will receive a notification to pick up the updated file.
