Sage 50 Canada and QuickBooks have unique differences in the software. As a result not all native data within Sage 50 can be converted directly into QuickBooks.

  • Invoices and Bills are converted as native QuickBooks transactions.
  • All other transactions are converted as Journal Entries.
  • Bank Reconciliations (but this can be reconciled at your end once, after the conversion)
  • Payroll data is not supported by QuickBooks. Paychecks are converted as Journal entries.
  • Employee YTD information is not converted. (A manual YTD entry is required after conversion)
  • Individual employee wage or deduction information.
  • Sage 50 Canada Custom templates.
  • Budgets.
  • Non-posting transactions are not converted.
  • Recurring transactions are not converted
  • You will need to memorize recurring transactions after the conversion.
  • A/R and A/P credits need to be manually applied for historical transactions.
  • Since the transactions downloaded into QuickBooks don’t link the bills/invoices with their respective payments, you may notice names that have zero balances in your A/R and A/P aging reports.
  • You can easily link A/P credits/payments to your open invoices by turning on the ‘Automatically use credits’ preferences.
  • Go to Edit > Preferences > Bills and click on “Automatically use credits” on the Company preferences tab.
