In QuickBooks Online, it’s only one entity is allowed per subscription. For a second (or additional) entity, you will need to purchase a different subscription. But you can switch between the multiple entities under one user ID.
Note: There is no option to create multiple companies from one paid subscription in QBO like in QuickBooks Desktop versions.
To add a second (or additional) company in QBO:
You can log on to both with one ID if you do the following:
- Go to http://quickbooks.intuit.com/pricing
- Click Buy Now under the version you want.
- Click “Already have an Intuit account from TurboTax, Mint or Quickbooks? Sign In.” (See screenshot below for “Sign In” link reference)
- Enter your login information (email address or User ID) and follow the on-screen prompts to set up the second company.
And then to log-in to your account ( http://qbo.intuit.com / ), you will have the option to select your companies.
Once you’re signed in, click the Top Gear icon to Switch Company.
