Intuit Account - Multiple companies

I'm having trouble sorting out how I should create Intuit IDs with the new requirement in Quickbooks Pro.


I have an Intuit ID from a deactivated T-sheets account that is not connected to a quickbooks company. (In the past, I've just used tsheets tracking for use with my payroll company. We're currently not using hourly employees so I've deactivated tsheets, but still have the Intuit ID.)


I'm being required to update to Intuit IDs for my Quickbooks Pro 3 user license. I have 4 different company files for different LLCs. I'm not sure how to proceed with the mandated update to Intuit IDs in Quickbooks. Do I need to set up 4 different additional Intuit IDs, one for each one of the company files? Does each need a separate unique email? Can I use the email or the ID from the tsheets Intuit ID previously created. (I may reactivate at some point.) How should I set this up? I'd rather not have to have 4, possibly 5, Intuit IDs to manage. 


Appreciate any advice! Thank  you!

Good day, Stefa35.


The Intuit account ID helps you to easily manage your connected Intuit products and services. You can access different company files using one Intuit account ID.


Please check this link for more details: Create or open a company file using your Intuit account ID.


Post again here if you have more questions. I'm looking forward to assisting you again.

Thank you for the reply. Glad to hear I can use one ID login for multiple companies.


Should I just use the intuit id I set up via tsheets? Or should I create a new one?


Thank you!

Thanks for coming back to this thread, Stefa35.


You can definitely use the Intuit ID you've set up for your TSheets account. This way, you can easily manage all your QuickBooks product and company files using a single credential.


Additionally, this ID is your universal user account for most of our websites. It allows you to access multiple Intuit websites and applications with the same user ID and password. Once you sign in to your Intuit account, you can see your orders, download your products, and make some changes to your stored information. 


You can refer to the article provided by my colleague AlexV, in creating or opening a company file using your Intuit account ID.


If you've forgotten your previous user ID or password, you may follow these simple steps to reset your account:

  1. Go to
  2. Select Forgot your Password? or Forgot your User ID?
  3. Follow the steps to retrieve your Password or User ID.
  4. Try to log in again.

Lastly, I encourage reading these articles to help better manage your account:
