trying to separate two different businesses that I have in quick books one has an LLC behind it one does not what the easiest way to do that


Hello there, titus.roberts983,

You can sign up for a QuickBooks Online account so you can separate one of your business that is a Limited Liability Company (LLC). This way, you're compliant with the IRS mandated roles.

To create a QBO account, kindly follow these steps:

  1. Go to the QuickBooks pricing page.
  2. Select the subscription you want. 
  3. Fill out all the information needed for your new company.

Once done, you can input all necessary information manually or import your list to QuickBooks.

If you have your other business under QuickBooks Self-Employed, it'll support you in tracking your business-related transactions. It is specially designed to help independent contractors track miles, income & expense, record invoices and accept payments, and file the Schedule C.

You can refer to this article for the detailed steps you need to take in creating a Limited Liability Company: How To Create A Limited Liability Company (LLC).

Here's an article that'll guide you in choosing the right QuickBooks version you need to use for your business: Choose the Right Version of QuickBooks.

Please let me know if you have other concerns about creating QuickBooks accounts. I'm just around if you need help.

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.
