QuickBooks Data Conversion Tools as to be probably one of the most popular accounting packages for small business owners. However, one of the primary challenges facing those trying to make use of this application is converting their current data to Quickbooks without losing or having to enter information in by hand.

The biggest consideration would be the kind of software you had been formerly using, and whether or otherwise not a converter exists for the particular software program.

Peachtree Users
In case your business has used the Peachtree accounting software program, converting to Quickbooks will undoubtedly be rather easy. Intuit has created an unique converter that is offered 100% free to new customers to aid them in importing their data.

After you have backed up your old data, it is simply a case of running the free conversion tool on your desktop to import important computer data.

Microsoft Small Business Accounting/Office Accounting
Users of Microsoft's built-in accounting package in Office 2009 or 2010 may also make use of the free Intuit conversion tool. In addition, companies that relied from the freeware version of this software, Microsoft Accounting Express, may use the free tool.

Once again, backing up your old information is strongly suggested before running the conversion tool.

Companies that used the older version of this software, Microsoft Money, can also be able to utilize this conversion tool.

MYOB Users
The Quickbooks conversion team, also known as QuickStart, does offer some support for converting MYOB files to Quickbooks. While not all files may be imported, a sizable portion could be convertible. It is advisable to contact Quickbooks technical support prior to trying to transform MYOB files; you will have to maintain all previous files from MYOB for legal purposes since historical data may not be imported.

Excel Files
For companies using Microsoft's Excel software to help keep accounting records, the transition process is almost certainly not as smooth. You can convert Excel files, both from Office versions dating prior to 2008 and newer versions, however you will want to set up new company files for all of your vendors.

Quickbooks offers a built-in converter that will handle these files, you may lose some formatting, and possibly some information. It's always best to do the full backup of the files before attempting to import and convert them.

Other Accounting Packages
Since Intuit technically only supports conversion from Peachtree or Microsoft Office, it may be hard to convert your data if the company previously relied on another accounting platform. Companies that have used lesser-known software programs, or who have developed in-house accounting software packages may go through difficulty in seamlessly importing their data.

In cases like this, it's always best to discuss the issue with a Quickbooks or Intuit customer care representative. They could be able to help you in contacting a developer who is able to build a particular conversion tool for your needs.
