Frequently Asked Questions

Can I track data for multiple businesses?

You are able to run more than one business from within your FreshBooks account. When set up, these businesses will run completely independently from each other; no financial information or any team members you may have will be shared between your businesses.

The only thing that will be shared is the Administrator's email address and the login page.


Setting up multiple businesses

  1. To set up an additional business, simply click on your avatar in the top left of your account, and choose + Add Another Business

  5. Once you've clicked Ok, got it, you'll be in your new business account and ready to start using FreshBooks for your additional company. Clicking on your avatar in the top left will give you the opportunity to change your logo, business name, and all of the administrative stuff you may wish to adjust.

How do I switch between businesses?
