It's not advisable to mix your self-employment transactions into your business/LLC financial data. Instead, you can subscribe to Quickbooks Self-Employed. This version is perfect for contractors.
Though, you can still add your contractor data into your LLC using class tracking feature. That way, you can run a separate report to show only the income and expenses for your self-employment. Please read this link on how to turn on and set up class tracking in QuickBooks Online. Please check this article to see the different reports you can use: Run reports by class.
Post again if you have more clarifications. Wishing you all the best!
I have an LLC and also work as an independent contractor. Can I add my 1099 expenses and income to QuickBooks separate from the LLC?
Is there any reason why you cannot conduct the "independent contractor" work as your LLC? End result of taxes will be no different but it will grant you some protection of assets in case a customer sues you over a job.
And some have suggested that since a single member LLC and a sole proprietor are in essence no different that with PLus or Advanced you could separate the LLC from independent by using Classes to separate them. I do not support that idea since ou need separate forms filings and would have to pull out the one side.
Less expensive than two full QBO companies is one full QBO for the LLC and one Self-Employed for the independent work. Mileage apps work better with QBSE than with QBO, but...........
as Rustler said, in the long run QBDesktop will be far less expensive - you just have to weigh the portability and ability to run QB while on the job
