Can I run two businesses off the same quickbooks account?

Nice to have you in the Community space, @J_A.

QuickBooks Online only allows one Company per subscription. For a second (or additional) Company, you’ll need to sign up for a separate QBO account. This means each Company you create will have its own subscription. But, if you already have an existing account, you can use the same login credentials when signing up and switching between companies. Here’s how:

 

1. Go to https://quickbooks.intuit.com/online/.
2. Choose a version of QuickBooks.
3. On the signup page, select Sign in.
4. Enter your login information and follow the on-screen prompts to set up the second company.
5. Then, to log-in to your account: http://qbo.intuit.com. You'll have the option to select the company you'd like to work in. Once signed in, you can click the Gear icon at the top to Switch Company. Here is an additional article you may find helpful:

Please let me know if I can clarify anything further about your QuickBooks Online subscription, or anything else! Have a great day.

@J_A 

One QBO account is for one company file. You may manage branches/division by utilize the Class/Location feature available in QBO Plus and Advanced. Otherwise you should open a new account.
