I took an existing sample file and deleted EVERY transaction, Customers, Vendors, Employees, Items, and Left a basic set of Accounts. The purpose of using this file is to have a BLANK file that is great for training and testing, specifically for PAYROLL! Should work in 2014 up to 2022 Pro, Premier, and Enterprise, but not on mac.
For the Sample File we are discussing above, Download Portable File
Alternatively, if you are looking for a TOTALLY BLANK QuickBooks File that is NOT on Sample File mode, you can download this backup file I created for QuickBooks 2014 all the way up to 2022. This one has Inventory and Sales Tax Enabled.
