What if I have more than one location?

If you have more than one location, all of those locations can be added under the same Lightspeed Accounting account.

Each location will need to be connected to Lightspeed in use at that location and each location will need to be connected to the accounting system and company in use for that location.

Locations can share accounting connections, if all locations are part of the same accounting company (sometimes referred to as "legal entity") or each location can have its own connection, or some combination of the two.

If you have more than one location but have several locations that are part of the same accounting company, QuickBooks and Xero both allow you to assign additional data "tags" to your data so that you can still individually report on each location in the accounting system itself.

QuickBooks has two options (depending on your version of QuickBooks):

  • Tracking Classes
  • Locations

Xero allows you to self-define or name up to two tracking categories.
