Compare Quicken to QuickBooks bills and vendor payments

In QuickBooks, you'll handle bills and payments to vendors differently than you did in Quicken.

If you did this in Quicken...

Do this in QuickBooks

Used a cash-basis system where you tracked bills in a bank account and wrote postdated checks.

Handle the checks you've already written as you would handle them in Quicken.

Enter all new bills in the Enter Bills window. To pay new bills, use the Pay Bills window (not the Write Checks window).

Used an accrual-basis system where you tracked bills in an other liability account.

QuickBooks converts the other liability account to a current liability account. Use this account to track only those bills that you have already entered.

Enter all new bills in the Enter Bills window. To pay new bills, use the Pay Bills window.

Memorized transactions. If the option for memorizing all transactions is turned off in Quicken, QuickBooks converts all your memorized and scheduled transactions. On the other hand, if the option is turned on, QuickBooks does not convert stand-alone memorized transactions. It converts only scheduled transactions and transaction groups (whether scheduled or not).

If you have memorized transactions in Quicken that you'd rather not retype in QuickBooks, you can do one of two things:

  • Turn off the QuickFill option for memorizing all transactions in Quicken. If your list of memorized transactions is very long, you may want to delete the ones you won't need to use in QuickBooks.

  • Or, put these transactions into a transaction group in Quicken. QuickBooks always converts transaction groups. After the conversion is complete, you can remove the memorized transactions from the group and use them as you did in Quicken.
