How do I change my company name

Hi,

On the menu bar, go to "Company" and then go to my company, once there you can edit to correct spelling by using the icon marked like a pencil (in the upper right corner next to legal name) and you can make your corrections.

Hope this helps.

How do I change my company name

Welcome to the Community, dennis w.

 

I'm here to make sure you can update the company name in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

Thanks a lot for trying the recommended steps above. Since the OK button when changing the company name is grayed out, I have additional troubleshooting to resolve it.

 

First, let's update QuickBooks Desktop to the latest release. This will help download the changes, improvements, and fixes that were made to QuickBooks.

 

Here's how:

  1. Go to Help at the top menu bar, then choose Update QuickBooks.
  2. Choose Update Now at the top.
  3. Select the updates on the table
  4. Click box next to Reset Update.
  5. Choose Get Updates.

Once done, go back to the Company menu and update the company name. Follow the steps below:

  1. Choose Company at the top.
  2. Select My Company.
  3. Click the Edit button.
  4. Under Contact Information or Legal Information, update the Company name.
  5. Click OK.

Signing in to QuickBooks account can also help ensure you can save the company name (refer to the red arrow on the screenshot).

 

That information should get you back in order.

 

Let me know the results after trying the steps above. I'm always here to provide any additional assistance if you need anything else. Have a good one.

Changing your company name from made on your Company Information should show when you print invoices. If you're experiencing it the other way, you can try verifying and rebuilding your data in QuickBooks Desktop. This help detect and resolve data issues within your company file.

  2. Go to Utilities.
  3. Select Verify.

  2. Go to Utilities.
  3. Select Rebuild.

Thanks for joining this thread, J-Mashtriod.

 

Let's perform other troubleshooting steps by running the repair tool. This will help fix the unknown issue you've experienced with the Company menu in QuickBooks.

 

Let me show you how:

  1. Back up your company file.
  2. Restart your computer to ensure there are no programs that may affect the repair.
  3. Open the Windows Start menu, then select Control Panel.
  4. Choose Programs and Features, then Uninstall a Program.
  5. Select QuickBooks from the list of programs, then Uninstall/Change.
  6. Click Continue.
  7. Hit Repair, then Next. The repair should start right away, but it may take a while to finish. You can leave it running, and come back once it's done.
  8. Click Finish once done.
  9. Update your QuickBooks to the latest release. This makes sure you have the most recent fixes and security update.

If you encounter an error during the process above, please refer to the Repair your QuickBooks Desktop for Windows. Then, go to What to do if you get an error during a repair for the detailed steps on how to get rid of this.
