If you are using QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise Accountant and QuickBooks Desktop Accountant, you can send general journal entries and import them into your QuickBooks company files. This feature is designed to streamline the process of transferring and incorporating general journal entries created by the accountant into the client's file.
IMPORTANT: You can send and import General Journal Entries from one QuickBooks version to another. For example, a .QBJ file created and sent from QuickBooks Desktop 2016 can be imported into QuickBooks Desktop 2017. You can also import from a different company name with a warning message to continue.
