Multi-company discount under the ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing Program
FAQs

 

FOR QUICKBOOKS ONLINE MULTI-COMPANY SUBSCRIPTIONS ADDED ON OR AFTER JULY 15, 2021.

 

What is the multi-company discount under the ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing program?
With the launch of ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing, the new multi-company discount will be: Buy one copy of QuickBooks Online Plus (considered the “parent” or “primary” account) at the ProAdvisor discount price, and add up to 10 (“additional” or “child”) companies for $20 each per month for two years.

 

Who is eligible for this multi-company offer?
Any firm registered for QuickBooks Online Accountant during the offer period. Small business clients that would qualify the accountant for this discounted pricing are limited to clients running multiple companies out of a single instance of QuickBooks Online Plus subscription.

 

How does the offer work?
A firm will need to purchase the first QuickBooks Online Plus subscription (i.e. the primary/parent company) at the then current ProAdvisor Preferred billing price. As part of the same order, the firm can purchase up to an additional 10 QuickBooks Online Plus subscriptions at $20 each per month for two years. The primary company and the additional companies will all need to be purchased as part of the same order. Reach out to the Accountant Sales team by calling 888-241-3279.

 

What is the term of the offer?
The offer is for the first two years starting with the bill date of the primary (parent) company. After two years, the monthly pricing for each multi-company subscription will revert to the then current monthly ProAdvisor Preferred billing price. The pricing for the primary company will continue to remain at their then current monthly ProAdvisor Preferred billing price.

All multi-company inactive subscriptions must be activated within 30 days of offer signup. Full multi-company terms can be found here.

 

Which QuickBooks Online products are eligible under this offer?
Only QuickBooks Online Plus is eligible.

 

What if the primary company subscription is cancelled?
The multi-company discount will continue as long as there is one primary company and one additional company remaining on the QuickBooks Online subscription. One of the additional companies could become a primary company, and the rest of the companies would remain additional (child) companies.

 

What if the primary company subscription is moved out of the ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing program?
The multi-company discount will continue as long as there is one primary company and one additional company remaining on the QuickBooks Online Plus subscription.

 

What if the primary company subscription is downgraded to Simple Start?
The multi-company discount will continue as long as there is one primary company and one additional company remaining on the QuickBooks Online Plus subscription.

 

What if one or more of the additional company subscriptions are moved out of the ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing program?
Any cancelled additional company subscription will no longer qualify for the multi-company discount. This action will not impact the pricing and discount status of all remaining active QuickBooks Online Plus subscriptions. The multi company discount will only remain if one primary company and one additional company remains on the QuickBooks Online Plus subscription.

 

What if one or more of the additional company subscriptions are cancelled?
Any cancelled additional company subscription will no longer qualify for the multi-company discount. This action will not impact the pricing and discount status of all remaining active QuickBooks Online Plus subscriptions. The multi company discount will only remain if one primary company and one additional company remains on the QuickBooks Online Plus subscription.

 

What happens to the overall bundle pricing if a primary or additional account upgrades or downgrades?
For multi-company bundles, any upgrades or downgrades for primary or additional companies will receive the adjusted discount for that company to the then current ProAdvisor Preferred billing price. This will not change the price or discount for the other members in the multi-company bundle.

 

If there are multiple additional companies in a multi-company bundle and one additional company upgrades or downgrades, as long as there is one primary and one additional company in the multi-company bundle, the discount stays the same for the remaining additional companies, but the additional company who upgraded or downgraded will receive the new ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing discounted price at 30% for twelve months, after which the client will be charged the then-currently monthly list price.
If the primary account is upgraded, downgraded, or cancelled, then a new primary account is designated (one of the additional/children) at the then current primary price. As such, one of the additional companies loses the discount and becomes the primary, but the remaining additional companies retain their multi-company discount.

 

There are some exceptions and you read about them here.

 

What happens to pricing if multiple parent companies merge?
Multi-company discounts are set up with one primary (parent) and at least one additional (child) company. We cannot add parents nor children to the multi-company discount once it’s been set up but we can delete children accounts. Pricing remains the same for the parent company and children accounts. The other company will also retain their current eligible pricing.

 

There are some exceptions and you can read about them here.

 

If I have clients on the current wholesale discount, can I move them to the new ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing (e.g. I want the employee discounts for Payroll)?
Yes, it is possible for your client to move to ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing by contacting customer support at 888-333-3451. To do so, all firm-billed subscriptions for the requested client must be moved to ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing discounts.
