Sync QuickBooks and Clio  Connect QuickBooks to Clio

Clio is an effective and useful management platform for lawyers that help them in working efficiently and performing tasks like tracking time, managing matters and generating invoices.

To integrate Clio with QuickBooks, users must have a QuickBooks Online account. The integration allows users to sync contacts between Clio and QuickBooks Online. The contacts and customers originating from QuickBooks Online will not be automatically synced over to Clio but should be manually entered into Clio. The contacts with Approved invoices (unpaid) will sync from Clio to QuickBooks Online. After getting synced, if a user updates a Clio account in either application then it will get updated in the other application. It will sync invoices from Clio to QuickBooks Online. The payments and credit notes applied to Bills in Clio will also get synced to QuickBooks Online. The integration will also sync trust transactions from Clio to QuickBooks Online (one-way from Clio to QuickBooks Online).
