I just purchased another QuickBooks account. How do I add the new account to my existing accounts, so that I can view them all from one app?


I'd like to help with your QuickBooks account, Tobijah.


Did you use the same email address or User ID when the new account was purchased? If so, it'll be added automatically to the list of companies under your account. Then, you just need to switch between companies. Here's how:


iOS devices

  1. Go to the main menu and scroll down to Settings.
  2. Tap Switch Company.
  3. Select which company you'd like to open.

Android devices

  1. From the main menu, tap the drop-down list next to the current company name.
  2. Select which company you'd like to open.

If a completely different information was used, you can go to the web version of QBO and follow the steps in this article: Sign In To Multiple Companies With One User ID.


Also, make sure to use the existing ID in case you'll be adding more companies in the future. Here's how to add them under your existing user ID.


I'd be glad to get back and help you again in case you have follow-up questions.

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.
