What is the Accountant’s Copy in QuickBooks?
An accountant can use the Accountant’s Copy to make important changes to transactions on or before the dividing date. (*Dividing date is the date that separates the part of your company you will be able to work on from the part your accountant will work on.) This QuickBooks feature allows accountants and their clients to work on the client’s company file at the same time.
Once the editing is done the accountant can send these changes back to the client, who can import them in the current company file. While you are working in an Accountant’s Copy, the QuickBooks application title bar shows “Accountant’s Copy” next to the company filename. Make a note while you are working in the Accountant’s Copy, you can view certain fields are disabled. This restricts you from making further changes that cannot be sent back to your client. If the restrictions on using Accountant’s Copy won’t accommodate your situation, you may want to convert it to a regular company file.
