I have 2 different business accounts and I need to manage every account separately through Quickbooks, How can I do that ?

Hello Anas1,

 

I love that you're looking to use QuickBooks Self-Employed to manage two different sets of business books. I know how vital it is to keep those details separate for accurate tracking of taxes and other important business details and it's great that you're looking into these options. I can help you make sure you have the best fit for you.

 

When it comes to QuickBooks Self-Employed, managing a different set of books means starting a new subscription. Using a different set of login credentials, including a different email address from one already associated with an account, you can start another Self-Employed subscription to manage these sets of books. It's just as easy as that. Once you've set up the accounts, simply log into the one you need at any given time.

 

If you're hoping to be able to use the same login credentials for all the accounts, I recommend considering QuickBooks Online. Like Self-Employed, managing a new set of books requires a new subscription to keep the details in separate accounts, but you'll be able to use the same login details and switch between them more easily with the Switch Company tool built into the program. This version of the program also has a wider set of features, like a Chart of Accounts and vendor transactions to really help you with precisely managing your data.

 

The final option is QuickBooks Desktop. With this version of the software, you can create as many company files as you'd like under a single subscription. You'd simply close out of one and then create or open another when you need to enter transactions and information for another business. This is our most versatile QuickBooks option as it really allows you to get hands-on with your books.

I hope that gives you more insight into your choices. Don't be afraid to ask more questions!
