If you'd like to take some time to try out QuickBooks Online, you can do so by using our sample company. For countries that offer multiple versions of QuickBooks Online, it's a QuickBooks Online Plus sample company.

It's a great way to dive in and try things you might not feel comfortable experimenting with in your actual company. The system doesn't save any of the changes you make, so you can experiment all you like.

To ensure your security, we don't allow bank connections in sample companies. If you try to connect your bank account, you'll get the message  "Something isn't working. An error occurred while validating the credentials. Please try again.". This issue doesn't affect regular accounts so you can use either an active or trial account of QuickBooks Online to access and test the online banking functionality. 1492
