How do I delete and reset my Quickbooks Expenses? I set up two blank ones and they are not tied to active banking information. How do I reset the entire system?

This is really annoying.


Let me help you sort this out, craintrain13.

If there are no transactions listed under the account, you can proceed with deleting the expense account. However, if there are transactions recorded on it, you can make it as inactive instead.

First, ensure to create a backup of your company file prior to re-setting your bank’s connection.

Here’s how:

  1. Deactivate Bank Feeds for an account
  2. Create a new bank account.
    1. Click Lists from the menu tab.
    2. Select Chart of Accounts.
    3. In the Chart of Accounts window, right-click anywhere and select New.
    4. Select Bank for the Account Type.
    5. In the Account Name field, enter the name of the bank.
    6. Choose Save & Close.
  3. Set up the merged account for Bank Feeds.

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.
