Thank you for posting here in the Community, nkalloo.
I can help you with creating another company for your QuickBooks Online.
You'll need to sign-up for a new QuickBooks Online account to create another company. One company file is equivalent to one subscription.
To put this company under your existing Intuit ID, log into your current company when creating a new account. Simply click on the Add another company button when creating another account (I'll be adding a screenshot for reference). From there, you'll only be asked for an Email address and Password (you should be using the same email address).
Check this International versions article, then choose your country to create a new account.
Once done, you can simply switch from one company to other quickly. See this how do I switch companies article for more information.
That should do it. Let me know if you need further assistance in creating a new company by leaving a comment below. I'm always glad to help in any way I can. Have a great rest of the day.
Hello there, @IStone,
The Add another company link will appear on the signup page after choosing your new QuickBooks plan. You may be seeing it in the current company settings. This could be the reason you're unable to see this option.
To help fix this, let's go to the International Versions article to help you add a second account. Then, proceed with the steps below:
The screenshot below shows you the sixth and seventh steps. For detailed instructions, go through this article: Create or Add Another Company.
Once done, you can switch between companies you're subscribed to.
After that, you can now use your new QBO account. To help you get started and learn more about the program’s features, visit this website: QBO Global FAQ.
I’m looking forward to your business success in using QuickBooks, @IStone.
Just click the Reply button if you need anything else. I'll gladly help.
This is absurd. First, you morons force us to upgrade to the cloud version because the desktop version can't download PayPal accounts correctly anymore (yeah it used to work). Then you limit us to just having one company file unless we pay for multiple subscriptions!!! What about those of us who have 10 years of back data in our company file and just want to start with a clean slate for a new decade with cleaner categories??? We're basically screwed unless we...A: Pay for two monthy accounts, B: lose all our old books and pray the IRS doesn't want to see our books.
Well, screw YOU!!! I'm opting for option C... Switch to a different bookkeeping platform altogether.
I know you guys like to screw us over like we're all big corporate fat cats, but the reality is most of us are just two person companies trying to scrape by and being raped by your policies.
Im using QB Online and I have 2 different companies I do books for but I have them under 2 different email and would like to be able to sign in with just my 1 main email I use daily. One of them in under my proper email and the other when I started it I used a second gmail account. Can I switch it so they are both able to sign in under 1 email account. Hope Im being clear:)
Yes, you can do it, 9130347993151966.
QuickBooks Online has the option to change your email address. This way, you'll only have to use one credential in accessing your two companies. I can definitely guide you in doing it.
I've added an article that will help you add Intuit's service email addresses in your email's list of accepted senders. This way, you'll receive important email messages from us.
There you have it! The Community has your back, so please let me know if I can be of any additional assistance. Wishing you well.
Hello there, @Drex!
You can manually create the opening balance of your new company by entering it directly from your chart of accounts.
In addition, here's an article you can read to learn more about your opening balance entry: Enter opening balances for accounts in QuickBooks Online.
Lastly, I've you these helpful articles for reference about tasks related to your company and accounts: Help Articles for QuickBooks Online.
Fill me in if you have any other questions. I'll be always around ready to lend a helping hand.
I have both a Quickbooks online acoount (original purchase) and adde Quickbooks Self-Employed several months ago. I would hit my icon, Quckbooks came up and all working fine. I had my other comapny sown on top of pages and only ned click on one or the other to brig up what i wanted. Just recently, tat all was gone. I have to go to internet and request Quickbooks Self - Employed to access the account. If I go to switch company, all I get is my Quickbooks oline account (company). Why not working now? I tried what you noted above but to noavail. I am not too computer smart at all and d not know whee to go. online Quickbok help is of no use.
Hello there, @RKT1.
Currently, switching from QuickBooks Online (QBO) to QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE) is unavailable.
While QBO gives you the option to upgrade your service, you can't migrate directly to QBSE. This is because they're totally different programs and are designed for different types of businesses.
In the meantime, if you want to open the two accounts at the same time. You'll need to use a different link to open it.
For future reference about QuickBooks Online and Self Employed, here's an article for more information.
We're here to help if you have any other concerns.
Hello there, maggy02,
We can easily create another company using your existing QuickBooks Online login credentials. Here are the steps that we need to take:
Every time you log in to your account, you'll now see the the list of company associated to it. Then, you'll also have the Switch option that allows you to toggle from one company to the other without logging off.
Meanwhile, you can only associate a single email address for QuickBooks Self-Employed. You'll need to use a different one if you want to sign up for a new QBSE account.
Feel free to get back to us if you need additional assist regarding the process. Have a great day!
One QBO account for one company file.
Another option, consider switching to QB Desktop with a single one time license to manage multiple company files. Deploy a private cloud if required to access your files by internet connection.
As I mentioned earlier, one QBO account is for one company file. Consider using QB Desktop to manage multiple company file with a one time license instead. Deploy a private cloud if required.
I'm here to help you add another QuickBooks Online company.
As mentioned by other users and my colleagues, you can use the same credentials to add another company to your account.
Go to this link and choose your country (where you operate your business): https://quickbooks.intuit.com/choose-country/.
Next, click the Buy now or Free 30-day trial button then select your plan. Use the same existing credentials then follow the steps to finish creating your new QuickBooks Online company.
If you want to switch to other companies, simply click on the Gear icon then select Switch company.
After getting a new company, you can set it up based on how you operate your business. QuickBooks Online automatically adds accounts (in the Chart of Accounts) for you to use immediately. Though, I would recommend consulting with an accountant so they can guide you in setting up your Chart of Accounts properly.
I'd also recommend checking out our articles under the Getting Started topic here. The articles can help you set up your new QuickBooks Online.
If you need a reference about the steps, open this article: Create or add another company file to QuickBooks Online.
If you need help recording transactions or setting up your vendors or customers lists, you can check out other topics here.
Should you have any other concerns with your QuickBooks Online companies, do let me know. I'm here to offer help and some guides.
One QBO account is for one company file. You may manage branches/divisions by utilizing the Class/Location feature available in QBO Plus. Otherwise you should open a new account.
Another option, consider using QBD. You may have multiple company files with a one time license. Deploy a private cloud if required to access your data by internet connection.
I currently have the "Advanced" subscription for my existing company. I am adding a second company soon but it only required the "Simple Start" subscription.
Could you have two companies with different subscription types under the same account?
Yes, you can, Baze0719.
In QuickBooks Online, you can have more than one account with the same login credentials. Each account you create requires an additional subscription. For each QBO account, you can have as many companies as you'd like.
Here are the steps to add a new company:
Once you log in to your QuickBooks Online account, you'll see the two companies and switch between them.
