Conversion limitations Xero

We are aiming to cover all the possible scenarios of your source accounting system when converting it to the new one, nevertheless because the systems subtly vary on how they are handling accounting, it is not always possible to convert everything and for all your accounting period. Hence it is important you take your time to understand the limitations of our service.

Apart from the limitations listed in the article linked above, Xero also has the following ones:

Departments and projects

Tracking classes in Xero will become Locations in Quickbooks Online.

Journal Merge

Xero keeps a very detailed journal history for all operations. Because of an overabundance of information on Customers/Suppliers level, we merge journals related to Credits, Prepayments and Overpayments in order to keep an accurate balance on all accounts. This means that older period reports might not represent the correct balance at that time even if all the current and outstanding balances will be fine.
