You have our pledge that any and all information provided to us is merely in the performance of our services and we would never use such information for our own gain.

What is not converted from BusinessWorks?

We only currently convert core accounting data from BusinessWorks and not the following types of data.

  • Bank Reconciliations (You will need to do one bank reconciliation after the conversion)
  • Paychecks are converted as Journal Entries (Payroll data conversion is not supported by Quickbooks)
  • Employee YTD information (You will need to enter employee YTD information into Quickbooks after the conversion since payroll data conversion is not supported by Quickbooks)
  • Individual employee wage or deduction information
  • BusinessWorks Custom templates
  • Budgets
  • Custom templates
  • Jobs are not attached to transactions & Job Costing is not converted
  • Fixed Asset Items (This is only applicable if your Sage 50 data file is linked to Sage 50 Fixed Assets)
  • Work Tickets
  • Posting and Non-posting transactions after the current date are not converted
  • Closed or partially closed Sales Orders, Purchase Orders, and Estimates
  • Quickbooks handles Sales tax differently compared to Sage 50 and you may need to make Sales Tax Adjustments prior to using Quickbooks
  • Sales Tax items are converted to Quickbooks but Customer Sales Tax defaults are not assigned to customers.
  • We try to map every available field in Sage 50/Peachtree to the corresponding field in Quickbooks. In some cases, fields are not compatible and are not transferred over. You will need to manually enter such fields after the conversion. Examples of such fields are vendor default account numbers, preferred vendors for inventory, multiple shipping addresses for customers, and default Customer Sales Tax settings.
