An Accountant's Copy is a version of your company file your accountant can use to make changes while you continue to work. When your accountant is done, you can then import his or her changes into your company file. Create an Accountant's Copy file and deliver it to your accountant (email, CD, or other method). Before you begin, coordinate with your accountant on a dividing
date. This date defines the fiscal period your accountant will work on.
You can also create and send an Accountant's Copy in one step using the Accountant's Copy File Transfer, an Intuit Web service.
