How Do I Add and Manage My Businesses in My Account?

When you first sign up for FreshBooks, your first business or company becomes your primary business. You can add more businesses or companies under the same login and quickly switch between any of them. Each business you set up will run independently from each other; no financial information or any team members you have will be shared between your businesses. The only thing shared between businesses is the same login information.
Only two trial Businesses can be active at a time, upgrade or delete a Business to create more after.
