QuickBooks For CPAs With Multiple Companies

Don Gray's Profile

I am a retired CPA who wants to do some bookkeeping services on a telecommute basis for some companies.  My question is, will QuickBooks Pro 2015 allow me to record transactions for 2 or more companies?  Thanks.

As far as I know, there is no such limit you can create 2 or more companies in QuickBooks Pro 2015.

I'm a QBOA Pro Advisor. There's no limit like Kundan said. In fact, the number of clients you have will give you better status (silver, gold, platinum). You can offer wholesale prices (50% Off) once you're in the Pro Advisor Program.

@Lewis: He isn't referring to QBO - he's referring to QB Desktop 2015.

But not sure exactly what this is asking. Do you want to add two different entities to the same company file? I wouldn't but you could with class tracking. If you are asking if you can create different company files for each entity in QB 2015 then yes of course. You can create unlimited company files.

Hello. I have a question on top of the multiple companies. Assume you have 5 clients and each client owns the software. Let's also assume they update the day to day transactions and as the accountant, you review and prepare the month-end entries. Is there a functionality within QuickBooks Pro that enables you to access the clients files remotely? Or does this have to be done outside of Quicken through file transfers or remote software? Thank you

Michael, check out the "Accountant's Copy."
GoToMyPC or Right Networks are also great options.

Private message me if you'd like to hear more.

What are you trying to do?
What type of transactions? [generally depends on the access allowed by the client]
What do you mean "2 or more companies"? Within the same client QB file or separate files?

For the Desktop version, you can log into the client's file remotely:

1. Through 3rd party Remote PC Access connection like GoToMyPC or LogMeIn
2. VPN connection through the client's computer system
3. QB Accountant's Copy sent to you directly or through an Intuit subscription by client
