QuickBooks Online lets you delete a bank account or register in your Chart of Accounts. This is especially helpful if there are accounts you no longer use.

Delete a bank account

  1. Select the Gear icon on the Toolbar.
  2. Under Your Company, choose Chart of Accounts.
  3. Find the account you want to delete.
  4. Select the drop-down in the Action column, then choose Delete.
  5. Select Yes to confirm the action.
What happens to bank transactions after deleting?

Deleting an account doesn't automatically remove its transactions. They remain in the company file and you can still access them through reports. To completely remove transaction data, you have to delete all of them.

Delete bank transactions

Currently, you can only delete one transaction at a time in QuickBooks Online. Perform these steps on all transactions that need to be deleted.

  1. Select the Gear icon on the Toolbar.
  2. Under Your Company, choose Chart of Accounts.
  3. Find the account you want to delete.
  4. In the Action column, select View register/Account History.
  5. Select a transaction, then select Delete.
  6. Select Yes to confirm the action.
