Is QuickBooks Accountant backward compatible? Can I use QuickBooks Accountant to work on client files from older versions of QuickBooks?

Some features in QuickBooks Accountant 2012 allow you to work on client files from QuickBooks 2011 depending on how you choose to work with your clients accounting records. QuickBooks Accountant 2012 is built to allow you to easily exchange and work with your clients' QuickBooks 2012 accounting files. There are three different ways to exchange QuickBooks accounting data, to suit how you work with your clients.

Accountant's Copy
Allows you to exchange, open and adjust virtually all your clients' prior period accounting records from QuickBooks Pro 2011 and QuickBooks Premier 2011. When you've finished making adjustments, your client can review and merge your changes into their ongoing accounting records.

Backup Copy
Open, adjust, and return full data files from your clients' 2012 QuickBooks files. When the client imports a backup file, it overwrites the current file. If you want the client to import your changes, they must stop work in their file so their work is not lost. You can open and modify files from prior year versions. However, files opened and converted in QuickBooks Accountant 2012 cannot be sent back to prior year versions of QuickBooks.

Portable Company File
All the benefits of a Backup Copy but in a much smaller file size making it easier to email. Contains only your company file financial data but doesn't have related files such as letters, logos, images, and templates.
