How can i give a read-only access to my audit team. I want them to view all my quickbooks data but i dont want them to be able to change any thing. Is this possible?

I want my audit team to be able to view all my quickbooks entries and data to review my data entered to date. So that they can suggest any corrections or compliance related issues to my accounts team. But i dont want the audit team to be able to change anything in the system. Is this possible for me to create a user with only read only rights to my entire quick books account?

I am not certain about International but US versions allow an "unlimited" number of Read Only users that do not reduce the number of regular users your subscription allows. If your version has this option you will see that selection for user type and/or restrictions when adding a user

Reports Only (QuickBooks Online's Read Only access) - These users have read only access to all reports (except Audit Log and Payroll Reports). They can create a group of reports, memorize a report, and drill down as far as transaction reports but they don't have the ability to view the actual transaction. This user is only available in QuickBooks Online Plus.

However, the OP may want their audit team to be able to view actual transactions, which a Reports Only user cannot do (seems like QBO needs another user category or ability to allow a user to view all transactions yet edit none

They can "drill down as far as transaction reports but they don't have the ability to view the actual transaction", so transaction report should be enough, as I think that shows everything that's on the actual transaction, if you can add columns. But I would think they want to see the audit log
