Quick books self employed

I am currently using quickbooks self employed however it's for the business I just started. When I go to pay the quarterly taxes and file taxes at the end of the year, can I just replace my name with  the company name and use the company EIN instead of my ssn?

Welcome to the Community space, DeVoe-ted0424.


I'll share some information about changing your company information in QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE).


The company name displayed on your account depends on the details you've entered in the Personal Info tab. You can change your company name in the Name section. I'll show you how to do it.


  1. Sign in to QBSE.
  2. Go to Settings ⚙, then select Intuit Account to open the Intuit Account Manager.
  3. Choose the Personal info tab. Then enter your company name in the Name field.
  4. Click Save.


On the other hand, the option to use your EIN isn't possible in QBSE since this is designed for Independent Contractors. You may consider switching to QuickBooks Online (QBO) and choosing the version that suits your needs. Please visit this article for more insights: Switch from QuickBooks Self-Employed to QuickBooks Online.


Once you've switched to QBO, you can now change your business info. I've got this resource for a complete guide: Change your business name, contact info, or EIN in QuickBooks Online.

I don't have any employees as of yet, and i was having a hard time trying to use qb online, due to i don't have payroll or taxes taken out from the income i make. will the qb online still give me my est. quarterly taxes that i owe? i've never done the books or taken any accounting classes, this is all new to me and very confusing!
