Can I use £GBP currency in one company file and US$ in a separate company file?Neither file will use multi currency as one business is UK, one is US

Can I use £GBP currency in one company file and US$ in a separate company file?

QB help keeps taking me to multi currency but that is not what I am trying to do. One company file is UK, the other company file is for a US business, each company trades only in its own currency


Hi there, sales.

The currency depends on the QuickBooks version you have if the Multi currency is not turned on. However, if you don’t like to turn on this feature, I’d recommend getting another QuickBooks license (either the UK or the US version).  

Please note that you’ll need to use US billing information for QuickBooks Desktop US.

Here’s the link where you can get and download QuickBooks Desktop:

You can also get and download QuickBooks through online retail stores.

I'll be around if you have any questions about QuickBooks.

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.
