A question I get from desktop users is: how do you set up multiple businesses in Quickbooks (assuming each business files a separate tax return)?  Use the Advanced/Detailed Setup to go through the Easy Setup interview for each company file.  You might also create a new file if the old file is beyond repairing and you want to start over.  If you want to start over, consider this option; choose File>Utilities>Clean Up Company Data.  Quickbooks will delete all transactions but will keep the lists and preferences, so you don’t have to start from scratch. Email me at with your Quickbooks questions, and also check out my website for all my bookkeeping services.
