How do I remove contractors and if I do, will their past records be saved? Thank you

I have 3 contractors that I will not be bringing back and I am being charged for them, how to I take their monthly billing amount off?


Hi green4folder, 

We can inactivate the contractor so the name won't appear on the list when making a bill payment. Let me show you how to set the contractor as inactive.

  1. Click Vendors on the upper menu.
  2. Select Vendor Center.
  3. Choose the vendor.
  4. Right-click and select Delete Vendor
  5. A pop up message appears, click Make Inactive.
  6. You'll receive a warning if the vendor has a balance and confirmation if you want to make inactive, click Yes

Also, you'll only be charged if you process bill payment through direct deposit.

I have this article for more information about paying bills through direct deposit: Pay Bills For Vendors Through Direct Deposit.

Let me know if you have further questions. I'm here to help.

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.
