Thanks for reaching out. I see you've tagged QuickBooks Self-Employed as the product you're using for this post, but it sounds like you're using QuickBooks Online. QuickBooks Self-Employed is a simplified version of QuickBooks that doesn't operate with a Chart of Accounts. Not to worry, I can explain what you're looking for in QuickBooks Online to get you set up.
I'll start with numbering. It's as easy as toggling the ability in the settings and then adding numbers to your accounts. Follow these simple steps.
Now when you add or edit accounts, you'll see a field for adding account numbers as well as the other relevant information. Go to the Accounting tab in the left menu, then click New to add new accounts. To edit existing accounts, click the drop-down arrow in the Action column and choose Edit. Read the Add or edit the Chart of Accounts article to learn more.
That should get you on your way. Stop by anytime with more questions. :) I'm here to help!
I can not seem to find the Chart of Accounts...so I can add new accounts. I am considering the Self-employed package.
If I do purchase this is there a way to move all my info under my current QB's online 23/mth package?
Thank you - Leslie
Hi there. Since QB Online and Self-Employed run on separate platforms, you'll have to manually transfer an enter your data into QB Self-Employed. I recommend using third-party apps such as Transaction Pro and Excel Importer to import and export your data. Feel free to contact our support team using this link for further assistance.
