Good to see you here in the Community, wmjarelljones.

I can help you with adding a 1099-only client in QuickBooks Online Accountant.

You can add this client by setting it up as an Individual and selecting QuickBooks Self-Employed for the product.

Here's how:

  1. Go to your Clients tab, and choose Add client.
  2. Choose to set this client as Individual.
  3. Provide the necessary information.
  4. Choose either your firm (Wholesale Discount) or your client (Direct Discount) will pay for the subscription.
  5. Select QBSE for the product choice.
  6. Choose Save

You can check this how to create a client in QuickBooks Online Accountant article for more information.

That should create a 1099-only client. If you have any other questions or would like me to clarify anything else about adding a client, let me know. I'm always glad to help in any way I can.​ Have a good day.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
