Thanks for your query! :)
Currently, QuickBooks Online can only handle one company profile per subscription. If you have multiple companies, you'll have to sign up for once QuickBooks Online account per company. But the good thing is, you can use the same user ID for all your companies so that the accounts are listed in one place when you log in.
Please check on the link below to know how to create multiple accounts using one User ID:
Hope this helps! :)
Thanks for coming back, ellen7855

It seems silly that QuickBooks is pushing updates constantly (my 2017 Desktop Pro version is now unsupported), so now I'm looking to "upgrade" to either the new desktop version or move to the QB Online, which is clearly what QB wants me to do. The problem is that I manage books for 3 different companies, but I can't justify paying for 3 separate subscriptions. I would like to switch to QB Online, but I won't be able to do so until you will allow for multiple companies to be run under one subscription.
So are you forcing me to buy the current version of Desktop again so I can run my three companies? Please help me. thanks.
Hello there, deebo,
You can still use your QuickBooks 2017. However, if you're using payroll or other online services it will be unavailable. Furthermore, updates and new releases will no longer be available.
As for using QuickBooks Online, you can only have one company per subscription since it's a cloud-based accounting.
Check out these articles for future reference:
Let me know if you have other questions.
You may have already settled this, but I wanted to pass this along for your knowledge.
Was this the only solution? I switched from desktop to online and now have a cluster mess with all transactions in a single database.
I also bought just one subscription, like I had for the desktop version.. I have seven bank accounts for 4 business's. Two account are escrow (non-profit). Cant beleive that I need four, or maybe 7 subscriptions.
