●      Ensure that only one company’s subscription has been activated for QuickBooks Desktop Payroll, Direct Deposit, E-file, and E-pay.
●      Whether you have payroll collected from the past year, QuickBooks might not have been able to delete all activities.
●      If you’re having difficulties creating a new file from an existing one, first fix the mistake and then move on.

From an existing QuickBooks company file, create a new one.
Step 1: Before duplicating your company file, create a backup.
●      At first you need to open the QuickBooks.
  • Select Switch to Single-user mode from the File tab.
  • Tap the File tab once more, then hover your cursor over Backup Company and select Create Local Backup.
  • Press Next after selecting Local Backup.
  • Click Browse in the Local Backup section, then select a location to save the backup company file.
  • Click Ok, then Save It Now, then Next.
  • Your company files have become safe, and you may easily make a copy of an existing business file.

Step 2: Make a copy of the QuickBooks company file that already exists.

  • Traverse to the company file you wish to copy in QuickBooks Desktop.
  • To open the Product Specifications window, press F2 on your keyboard.
  • Below File Information, you’ll now see the company file.
  • Use the backup to restore the company file as well.
  • You can rename the restored file and save it to a new folder, and also rename it.

Step 3:  Delete the transactions from the company file that was duplicated.

QuickBooks creates a new company file with the same accounts, lists, templates, and preferences as the backup you just restored. You should remove the files from the duplicated firm files to get a head start. Here’s how to do it.

  • To begin, open a new company file.
  • Select Utilities from the File menu.
  • Select Condense Data from the drop-down menu. Simply Click when offered by a notification that says “remove budget data.”
  • Choose All Transactions from the drop-down option in the Condense Data box, and after that click Next.

● Continue to follow the on-screen directions to complete the process of deleting the duplicate transactions.

Step 4: Verify the accounts and delete the transactions manually.
The transactions should be erased once you’ve completed the preceding procedures, but there are a few cases where you’ll need to manually remove them.
●      To access the Reports Center, go to the Reports section and click Reports Center.
●      Again from drop-down menu, choose Accounts and Taxes, and after that Transaction List by Date.
●      Set the date range manually to start just before the oldest duplicated transaction.
●      If you see any transactions in the list, remove them manually.
