I am starting a business with a partner and we both want access to the QuickBooks account. Do we need 2 separate sign ins. Or can we just use same password etc

Hi there, 

 

I'm excited to hear that you're going to be using QuickBooks Online to help you run your business! You'll love the flexibility of a cloud-based program, and how easy it is to use. I'll explain how you can create multiple sign-ins for both you and your partner. 

Depending on your specific plan level (EasyStart, Essentials, or Plus), you can add additional users to your QuickBooks Online account so that you each have a unique username and password. I'll explain your user options below based on the plan type. 


EasyStart - 1 user, plus 2 accountant users.

Essentials - 3 users, plus 2 accountant users. 

Plus - 5 users, plus 2 accountant users. 

 

Here's more information about the different user types in QBO: User types in QuickBooks Online.

 

To add a new user, follow the steps in this article: Add, delete, or change user access

 

That's all there is to it. If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to our tech support team

 

Cheers.

You may start from QBO ES as the lowest plan to minimize the cost and share your login credential with your partner. In term of audit purpose, I will not recommend such policy. You have to upgrade the plan to Essentials in due course.

Just my 2 cents.
