How To Use QuickBooks For More Than One Company

Posted by Randal DeHart on Wed, Mar 07, 2012

QuickBooks Allows You - To keep track of the accounting needs of multiple companies. You are limited only by the resources of your computer.

A Question We Get - Is will my computer hold more than one QuickBooks company file? The answer depends on how much space you have available on your computer.

For Example A Construction Company - With five employees and annual sales of $1,000,000 could expect the QuickBooks data file, (the actual company records, not including QuickBooks software), to be approximately 200 MB.

This Means That - A typical computer with 500 GB it could hold roughly 2,500 of that size QuickBooks Company files.

To Learn How To Find - The size of your QuickBooks file watch this short video and see the screen shot below:

You Should Be Able To - Store several QuickBooks company files on your PC or Mac computer easily.

Now If You Want - To have more than one company open at the same time, or have more than one person in QuickBooks at the same time you will need more licenses. To be on the safe side we recommend you speak with someone at QuickBooks (877) 683-3280 and they will help you.

If You Want To Access - QuickBooks Desktop Version Online Cloud Based we can help you with that. We have a relationship with an Intuit Authorized Commercial Host that stores and maintains QuickBooks desktop version that when you see it on your computer you will think it is running on your local PC or Mac. It is that good!

With This Option - You can access the desktop version of QuickBooks from anywhere you have internet using a PC or Mac and if you want multiple people to access QuickBooks we can arrange that for you as well!

We Will Even - Handle some or all of your Bookkeeping, Invoicing, Sales Tax Reports, B&O Tax Reports, Employment Security Reports, Labor and Industry Reports, Bank Reconciliations, Payment Applications. Just about any and all of your Accounting and Bookkeeping needs.

We Can Replace - Your current bookkeeper with one that is on-call, on-demand around the clock and never talks back or gives you any grief!
