Understanding User Roles in Quickbooks Online

If you need help establishing your best practices, ZümiFi is here to help.

It is important to understand the various roles within Quickbooks Online. If you were asked, “Who is the owner of your company’s books?” As your business owner, you would not hesitate to say that you do. In addition, if you are a client of ZümiFi, that would be the correct answer.

For other service providers, that is not always the case. As a result, most owners leave it up to an accountant or a bookkeeper to handle the set-up process.

  • If the individual happens to make themselves the master administrator, then they have total control of your books.
  • If you are the company administrator, you have complete book access.
  • The master administrator is the account owner and has access to your QBO subscription, the rights to change company settings, the ability to invite/delete users, and can edit users’ access. Most importantly, the master administrator is the only one that can transfer this role.

If you have decided to part ways with your “Master Administrator,” things can turn ugly if the parting is on a sour note. Just because you trust your accountant or us, this is one role you cannot trust anyone with. Being the company administrator of your account is not enough. It would be best if you were the master administrator of your QuickBooks Online account. Your books are important, and they belong to you.
