Sorry it is not a question for the ATO. Its a question for QBO.
I have 2 new clients and need to set up SMSF ledgers.
The question I am asking is what type of organisation to choose.
The choice is:
-Private limited company
Thanks for the clarification. We won't be able to decide what is the correct company type for you and your client's business. Hence, it would be best to consult an accounting professional about this.
You can select the nearest company type that suits your client's business type. And can edit it later on. QuickBooks Online automatically creates the chart of accounts for you, but you can always add and create a new chart of accounts that suits or is needed for your business.
