How to switch companies in QBO?

I have a QBO Essentials subscription for one company. I have just signed in with the same ID and Password from my subscription to do a free trial to another company with QBO Plus. I don't see any options to switch companies when I sign in. What am I doing wrong?

If you have multiple companies with the same User ID, you should see the companies listed when you sign in (like the screenshot below). Select the company you want to open and to switch company select the Gear icon on the top.


Something is wrong if you are not seeing Companies listed when you sign-in QBO. You may want to contact QBO support and let them review the account setup.
