Add Existing QuickBooks Online Clients to Your List

Amid the rush of adding your non-QuickBooks clients, it’s important to make sure your existing QuickBooks clients are in your list, too. This enables you to access their books, assign tasks and track their projects all from your QuickBooks Online Accountant dashboard. After all, the more efficiently you can manage your clients and their work, the bigger impact you can make on their business.

How to add existing QuickBooks Online clients:

  • Ask your client to invite you to their QuickBooks account. Alternatively, if you have your client’s QuickBooks credentials and permission, you can invite yourself. The steps are the same in both scenarios.
  • To send an invitation: In your client’s QuickBooks Online account, your client (or you) will go to the My Accountant tab in the left navigation panel, enter your email address and click Invite.
  • You will receive an email invitation to connect with your client. Accept the invite, and your client will be automatically added to your client list in QuickBooks Online Accountant.

It’s that easy. Now you’re ready to access all of your clients and their projects with one login through QuickBooks Online Accountant.
