Learn about usage limits in QuickBooks Online

SOLVEDby QuickBooks9Updated 1 month ago

Usage limits are the maximum number of users you can have at one time in QuickBooks. Depending on your subscription, you have a specific usage limit. These limits apply to how many billable users you can add to QuickBooks. Here's how to view and manage usage limits and what to do when you reach your limits.

User Limits in QuickBooks Online

Note: Only administrators and standard users count toward your billable user limit. Some user types like reports only and time tracking only don't count toward the user limit. Make sure each user in QuickBooks has the access that's right for them.

Here are the usage limits for each subscription level:

QuickBooks Online Simple Start1 billable user + 2 accounting firms
QuickBooks Online Essentials3 billable users + 2 accounting firms
QuickBooks Online Plus5 billable users + 2 accounting firms
QuickBooks Online Advanced25 billable users + 2 accounting firms

What happens when I reach my limit?

When you reach your usage limits and can’t add any more users, don’t worry. You can either upgrade your subscription, or reduce your usage. If you have more than one company, you’ll need to check usage for each one.

To reduce usage, you can delete an account user if you have too many users in your account.

Note: If your accountant manages your QuickBooks account, contact them to update your subscription.
