How do I add a second company to my account? I have been running a Limited company on Quickbooks and I have started a new, totally separate Limited company.

Hi there, info1400.

 

You'll have to sign-up for a new QuickBooks Online account to add a second company. Please note that each company you add will be a separate paid subscription, and you’ll access them all with the same login info. This lets you quickly switch between companies so you can manage everything more efficiently.

 

To put the second company under your existing Intuit ID, log into your current company when creating a new account. Follow the steps below on how to add a new account.

 

  1. Go to the QuickBooks pricing page and select the subscription you want. Then, you’ll see one of two sign-in pages. If you recently signed in to QuickBooks, you’ll see a page asking you to confirm the account you want to sign in under. If it’s the account you want to manage the new company with, select “Yes, that’s correct.”
  2. If you haven’t signed in recently, you’ll see a page that asks you to create an Intuit account to buy QuickBooks. Scroll all the way to the bottom and look for the small text that says “Adding a company to an existing account?” Select Sign in next to this. When asked, enter the same ID and password you already use for QuickBooks. Or get help if you can’t remember your user ID or password.
  3. Fill out all the information about your new company and you’re good to go.

 

Once done, you can switch from one company to another quickly. To do this, just select Settings ⚙️ and choose Switch company. For additional information, you can click this article: How do I switch companies?.

 

Please refer to this link to look for some information on how to organize your QuickBooks account and how to start creating transactions in the system and to run different reports: Help articles.

 

Let me know if there's anything that I can help you with. I'm always glad to help in any way I can. Have a great rest of the day.
