Adding another business to quickbooks

A warm welcome to the Community, sensorycircustri.

 

I'd be glad to help you add another business in QuickBooks Online account.

 

You'll need to sign-up for a new QuickBooks Online account to create another account for your business. One company file is equivalent to one subscription.

 

If you want to put this company under your existing Intuit ID, log into your current company when creating a new account. Simply click on the Add another company button when creating another account.

 

Here's how to add a second account:

 

  1. Go to https://quickbooks.intuit.com/choose-country/.
  2. Select your country and choose the version of QuickBooks that fits your business.
  3. Select Buy Now or SignUp for a free 30-day trial.
  4. Type in the country, click Choose.
  5. On the signup page, type in the same email address.
  6. If it prompts you that this email address is already taken, select Sign in.
  7. Enter your existing Intuit email address and password.

To switch between companies, here's how:

 

  1. Click the Gear icon on the upper right corner.
  2. Select Switch Company on the fourth column.

You can get more details in this article about adding another account in QuickBooks: Create or subscribe to another company.

 

That should do it. Let me know if you need further assistance in creating a new company by leaving a comment below. I'm always glad to help in any way I can. Have a great rest of the day.

If you have to open a new QBO account, make sure to click the Buy button to get the discounted price for up to 3 months. If you purchase from the trial account, you have to pay the regular price.

I don't have the switch business option?

Thanks for checking in with us, Dianadoesbooks.

 

The Switch company option is available if you have added additional company files in QuickBooks Online (QBO). Just click the Gear icon on the top menu and tap the Switch company option.

If that option is unavailable, it means you only have one company or QBO subscription. One company file is equivalent to one subscription. If you want to add a new one, we can create or subscribe to another company or create a new company and add subscriptions.

 

Visit the Manage your account page for more insights about managing your QBO account and subscription. 

 

I hope that this response finds you with a smile. Keep me posted if you need a hand with running your business in QBO. I'm always here to ensure your success.

What if you already created another company and signed up for a new subscription? How can I synch my new company that I already created with my other companies on QB's online?

Hi Sydnamariani, 

 

You just need to make sure you have invited yourself into both companies with the same email then you'd be able to switch in between once you logged in. 

 

Hope this helps and please let us know if you require any additional assistance.

@sydnamariani 

What do you mean with "sync"? Do wish to manage 2 QBO accounts with the same data in real time, migrate data between QBO accounts, or else?

@PizzaDude77 

Just to clarify. Do you have a QBO Plus account to manage 3 company data or a QBO Accountant account to manage them?

Do you have QBO AU account or QBO Accountant account?

Hello there, @ConnieSue.

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. I'd be glad to help you today.

 

Do you want to add a new company and add subscriptions in QuickBooks Online? If so, let me guide how.

 

To create a new QBO company:

  1. Visit https://quickbooks.intuit.com/au/pricing/.
  2. Choose either Buy Now or Free 30-day trial to subscribe to QuickBooks.

To add company subscriptions:

  1. Visit https://quickbooks.intuit.com/au/pricing/.
  2. Choose either Buy Now or Free 30-day trial to subscribe to QuickBooks.
  3. Select either Sign in or Subscribe here.
  4. Sign in with your previous or current user ID and password for other company subscriptions. Follow the onscreen prompts to set up a new subscription under your existing login.

On the other hand, if you have a QuickBooks Accountant Online company, then you'll need to add a client to your account.

 

Feel free to review this article for more details: Create a new company and add subscriptions.

Hi Rose,

 

I am located in UAE and I want to add a new company which is in the Philippines.

 

I got the link from our Philippine contact for the local Quickbook version but it will not allow me to pay or add from my existing account here in UAE.

 

Appreciate your advice!=)

 

Cheers

@Jose Christop 

What error message did you encounter? QBO AE version is not same with QBO Philippines version.

https://quickbooks.grsm.io/Arab-Emirates

 

Anyway, why was your posting appear in AU community, not Global Community? Are you located in AU now?

Hi, apologies I did not realized that this is an AU site. Your discussion came out when I goggled the topic!=)

 

The error I had was the link given from our Philippine contact did not allow me to pay for the subscription from UAE. I have now resolved this by setting up a new company using the country option. Still gives me the Philippine version but I will be able to pay and set-up from UAE. I guess the sales person from the Philippines will no longer get his commission.

 

Thanks!=)
