If you changed your business name or VAT #, you need to update them in several places in QuickBooks Online.

Step 1: Consider adding another company instead

There are a few reasons you might change your business name. But it might be best to to add another company instead of just changing your business info. This keeps your books distinct for tax purposes. And this is likely best if you’ll use a different VAT # for filing now.

Step 2: Update your company info in QuickBooks Online

  1. Go to Settings ⚙ and select Account and settings.
  2. Select the Sales menu on the left, then select the Messages section. Update your company name anywhere it appears here.
  3. Select the Company menu on the left.
  4. VAT #: Select VAT # and enter your new info.
  5. Business name or legal name: Enter your new info in the Company name field. This is your public business name that customers see ("Doing business as" name). If it's different than the name your company uses for tax purposes, clear the Same as company name checkbox and enter your info in the field there.
  6. If you use location tracking and have different business names for different locations, update your custom sales forms by location.
