I am using quickbook plus, can I set up multiple companies?

Thanks for dropping by the Community, @info1081.

 

In QuickBooks Online (QBO), you're only allowed one company per subscription. For a second (or additional) company, you will need to sign up for a new QBO account, because they must have their own subscription. You can also use the same login credentials when signing up and/or switching between companies.

 

Here's how:

 

1. Go to https://quickbooks.intuit.com/online/.

2. Choose a version of QuickBooks.

3. On the signup page, select Sign in.

4. Enter your login information and follow the on-screen instructions to set up the second company.

5. After that, log-in to QBO.

 

Once done, click the Gear icon at the top right to get to the Switch Company. For more information, you can refer to these articles:

 

 

Please leave a comment below if you have any other questions or concerns. I'll be more than happy to help. Have a great day!

It’s nice to see you in the Community, Mody.

 

Allow me to join this conversation and help set up these branches in QBO.

 

Based on the scenario, you’ll have to subscribe to another account (depending on the number of branches). This is to ensure all transactions are properly tracked, and your records are in order. I suggest following the steps provided by @FritzF on how to add another account.

 

Since you want to use the same chart of accounts, export the data, and then import it to each subscription. The steps are quick and easy.

 

To export:

 

  1. In your existing QBO account, click the Reports menu on the left panel and enter Account List in the field box.
  2. Tap the Export icon and choose Export to Excel.
  3. Save the file to a location where you can easily find it.

To import the Chart of Accounts:

 

  1. Go to the Gear icon at the top to choose Import Data under Tools.import coa.png
  2. On the Import Data page, tap the Chart of Accounts icon to open the Import accounts page.import coa.1.png
  3. From there, click the Browse button to find the file and hit Open and Next to continue.
  4. Map the fields and make sure the information matches with the QuickBooks Online Field to Your Field.import coa.2.png
  5. Press Next to open the Import Accounts page.
  6. Review the information and click Import once you’re ready.  

The following links outline the complete instructions on how to export and import the chart of accounts into QBO. From there, you’ll see the step by step process to map the accounts before transferring them to the company.

 

This information will point you in the right direction tracking all your branches.

 

Don’t hesitate to get back on this thread if you have any clarifications about the process. I’m more than happy to answer them for you. Have a great day ahead.

@Mody 

If you have many branches with a unique tax id, consider QB Desktop with a single one time license to manage multiple company file(s). You may deploy a private cloud should you need to access your data by internet connection.

my company has many branches how can I create a particular company file for each branch on QB online plus or do you have any way to make the branches separated as I need specific user for each branch who does not have permission to see other branch's data and vis versa.

QBO Advanced is only available for US market. As I mentioned earlier, 1 QBO account is for 1 company file.
