Error: Delete All Previously Entered Employee Data In QuickBooks Online

If QuickBooks Online detects that you have activated payroll features such as direct deposit enrollment, billing hold, or e-services enrollment, this error will arise. 

The steps to resolving this error are as follows:

For Windows Users 

If your payroll is locked in QuickBooks Desktop while in QuickBooks Online, you may see this error. To activate payroll on your desktop, follow these steps:

  • Select Preferences, then Payroll and Employees from the Edit menu
  • After that, go to the Full Payroll or Online Payroll from the Company Preferences menu

For Mac Users

  • QuickBooks Desktop for Mac does not have payroll features. You can’t use the internet to import a company file with existing payroll data.
  • Disconnect from QuickBooks Desktop for Mac and then export transactions from QB Online if you use Intuit Online Payroll to export transactions to a file. 

Error: There Was An Error When Checking This Company’s Import Eligibility

One of the following can cause this error:

  • In a QuickBooks Online company, you are not a master administrator, company administrator, or accountant user.
  • QuickBooks online payroll account services have a problem
  • Before importing the data, you did not log into your online account
  • You haven’t answered the first question in the setup interview

Steps To Solve This Error: 

  • Is a company administrator exporting, or can you get admin access from a master administrator?
  • Before you import, sign in to your online business
  • If the error persists, the simplest solution is to open a new online account. Before you start, make sure you cancel your previous membership.
