I erroneously deleted a Sales Invoice of a prior month. Can this be undone so as not to affect my previous tax filing?


Hi jcn.admn,

At this time, restoring a deleted invoice isn't possible in QuickBooks Online. You can recreate the transaction and use the details in the Audit Log. Let me guide you on how to check from there.

  1. Click the Gear Icon at the top right
  2. Select Audit Log.
  3. Click the drop-down arrow beside Filter.
  4. Select All Users and All dates.
  5. Under Events, tick the radio button beside the Show only these events option.
  6. Check the box beside Transactions and click the Apply button.
  7. Look for the invoice, and click View.
  8. Click the time to show the details.
Once done, recreate the invoice with the same date avoid any discrepancies in your current month tax return. 

I've got this article in case you want to add and match bank transactions: Match And Categorise Your Downloaded Bank Transactions.

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.
