One QBO account is for one company file. You can utilize the Location feature on QBO Plus and Advanced as a workaround but all companies will use the same invoice template.

Hi there SusanTH22,


It's important you have the software that suits the needs of your business. QuickBooks Online is a great tool able to help you manage your books for a business, while also being able to send invoices and other transactions to your customers. I can provide some information about a QuickBooks Online subscription.


As Fiat Lux - ASIA mentioned, a QuickBooks Online subscription is meant for one company. If you're looking of keeping track of multiple divisions, you could use the location feature within QuickBooks Online Plus or Advanced subscription, but if you need to have a separate invoice for different information, it would need to be tracked in separate QuickBooks accounts. Also, if you need to have separate tax filings for each division, they would need to be in separate subscriptions. If you want to upgrade your plan to Advanced or Plus, you can do so by following these steps. If you'd like to sign up for another account for the second company, you can do so on this page by selecting the plan you want, as well as entering the email for the existing account. This will allow you to have access to multiple subscriptions from the same login information.


If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out here.
