One company two different locations with two checking accounts, will this work?
We own two tire stores with one federal id number, can we use one quickbooks company with two locations and enter bills for each location, payroll for each location, and do P&L's for both locations with one main company?

If your company has different Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) for two locations, you'll need to set up another QuickBooks company file.
