I have a customer that's using QuickBooks 2006. He has a number of separate entities and we would like to use the same chart of accounts for all. Is there a way to copy the chart of accounts when I'm setting up each entity? It would save me some time for sure.

You can easily export/import any list in QuickBooks, including your chart of accounts, customers, vendors, items, etc. First, export the chart of accounts by going to File > Utilities > Export > Lists to IIF
and selecting the chart of accounts. Save it somewhere easy to find like your desktop.
Then open the new file and import the chart of accounts by going to File > Utilities > Import > IIF Files and selecting the file you exported.
