Hello tictopsales,

Let's get your company file purged.

If you are a new customer within the first 60 days of setting up your account, you can delete all of the existing data and start over from scratch by purging your company file. Additionally, please take note that the purging process is only available for QuickBooks Online Plus and Essentials.

Based on the link that you have provided, it seems like you're using QuickBooks for UK and the reply you provided () is Spanish. That could be the reason why you're unable to purge your data file. Let's make sure to use the correct language based on the version you're using when purging QuickBooks. 

Here's how to purge your company file:

  1. Log in to your QuickBooks Online Company.
  2. Change the URL to include /purgecompany.
    Example: URL shows https://qbo.intuit.com/c28/app/homepage Change to: https://qbo.intuit.com/c28/app/purgecompany
  3. The next screen will provide a summary of the items being deleted. In order to confirm that you understand the data will be deleted you must type in the word Yes and click OK.

Please let me know if you're able to purge your company file. I'm here to assist you the best I can.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
