Your accountant can't send you anything to "load up". You can enter all the opening stuff later but you can start payroll TODAY! Im an accredited partner of 20 years. Call me. I'll help you get started Kevin 0407744914

Hi Kevin, my accountant was using QuickBooks Pro 8.1 which is really old but he gone holidays and won't be back till the 8th July he was going to send me the USB stick for me to open an existing company file on to Reckon but I have never used QuickBooks Payroll as I used another software company.

I want to know can I create a new company then upload the existing file on to Reckon?

Are you talking about RA or are you talking about PP?

The two programs are very different.

He was going to try to convert QuickBooks Pro 8.1 to Reckon I don't know how. I used Kwik Payroll Software they closed their doors when STP came out.
All I want to know can I open up a new company to do my payroll and then when I get the USB stick I can upload. Its a bit of a pain when the accountant went on holidays. Grrr. :)
