Time stamp on QuickBooks for Mac backup file shows as GMT

While restoring a QuickBooks backup the backup Created/Modified time shows as several hours ahead of the actual backup time. 

Detailed information

This is happening because QuickBooks is using an internal GMT clock.

The QuickBooks.log file also displays the internal GMT time stamp when recording Verify, Rebuild, and some crash reports.

Viewing these files in Finder will display the correct time and no adjustment of your computer's system clock is required.
