Change your business name, contact info, or EIN in QuickBooks Online

SOLVEDby QuickBooksQuickBooks Online954Updated June 07, 2022

Here’s how to change your business info in QuickBooks Online. This is for the info that customers see on sales forms and invoices, or your internal info on file with Intuit.

Change your business info in QuickBooks Online

Use these steps to update your business contact email, address, phone number, EIN, and more.

  1. Go to Settings ⚙, then Account and settings.
  2. Select Company.
  3. Select any item you want to update. More fields will appear when you select an area, and the question mark for each field will tell you what it’s for. See the sections below for more info on some items.
  4. Select Save and Done to finish.

Note: When you use the steps above, you can change the email address customers see on your sales forms and where you get emails from Intuit. You should only list one email in the Company email field. For other email changes, see:

Business name and tax info

If you changed your business name or EIN, you need to update them in several places in QuickBooks Online.

Consider adding another company instead

In some scenarios, it might be best to add another company instead of changing your business info. This keeps your books distinct for tax purposes. This is likely best if you’ll use a different EIN for filing now.

Update your company info in QuickBooks Online

  1. Go to Settings ⚙, then Account and settings.
  2. Select Sales, then select the Messages section. Update your company name anywhere it appears here.
  3. Select Company, then Company name.
    • EIN: Select EIN and enter your new info.
    • Business name or legal name: Enter your new info in the Company name field. This is your public business name that customers see. If it's different than the name your company uses for tax purposes, uncheck Same as company name and enter your Legal name.
  4. If you use location tracking and have different business names for different locations, update your custom sales forms by location.

Note: If you can’t edit these fields, or you see Error -7000, you’ll need to edit your company info in your payments or payroll accounts, as outlined below.

Update your company info in payments and payroll

If you have QuickBooks Payments or payroll services, you need to update your company name and tax info in those accounts separately.

  1. Update your payroll services info first if you have payroll.
  2. Update your QuickBooks Payment info if you have payments.
