Loading converted data into
Virtual Office or SaaS hosted UltraTax CS

You can restore or proforma converted data into UltraTax CS; do not use both methods with the same converted data. If you restore your converted data, you should proforma the restored client data directly from the prior-year UltraTax CS, rather than proforma'ing clients from the converted data.

Review converted data

After you restore or proforma your data into UltraTax CS, you should carefully review the data. Refer to the Checklists for reviewing converted data to assist in your review.

Congratulations! Once you have converted and reviewed your data, you are ready to process returns.
