Can i use both quickbooks online and desktop at the same time?

Hi there, 


Running your small business with QuickBooks is an awesome choice! The best way to save you time and effort in your bookkeeping is to keep things streamlined all in one place. QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Online are two separate products, and I'd be happy to explain how to make the most of QuickBooks.


It's not recommended to use both QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Online for the same business. The reason for this is because you'd have to record each transaction or financial change in both versions of the program, as well as having active subscriptions for both products. 


If you're not sure which version of QuickBooks would best suit your needs, I'd recommend reaching out to our Sales team here: 1-888-829-8589. This team will be able to advise you on which product would best fit your requirements for your business. 


You're also able to touch base with our tech support team if you'd like to dive deeper into the capabilities of each product.


I hope this helps get you back on track.


Have a great day.
