For security reasons, Intuit does not change company information or personal email addresses for you. Log in to QuickBooks Online and follow the outlined steps in this article to update your company information.

Change the Company Name

If you recently changed your company name, you need to update it in several places in QuickBooks Online:

  • Legal name: Name used to communicate with the government. Your company name will be automatically set as your legal name if this field is left blank.
  • Email Messages: Company name that appears on customer emails.
  • Location List: Applicable to QuickBooks Online Plus Only. Please ignore if you are not using location tracking.

Change a direct personal contact email address

To transfer the Master Admin role, see Transfer the Master Administrator role.

  1. Select the Gear icon at the top, then Manage Users.
