How do I stop my quickbooks account?

Hi there,


I'm sad to learn that you'd like to leave QuickBooks. Is it something we did? 


If you'd like to try a plan with different features, you can upgrade your subscription.If you’d like some help with QuickBooks before you decide, you can find an accountant. Or, you can watch our video tutorials.


If you’re using QuickBooks Online Payments, you’ll need to cancel your Payments account separately. Once you finish any open transactions, follow the steps to close your Payments account.

Cancel your QuickBooks Online subscription


  • Purchased your subscription from iTunes or Google Play? Find out how to cancel your subscription through an app store.
  • Make sure you are signed in to QuickBooks from a web browser. You can't cancel your account from the QuickBooks mobile app.


Watch the video and learn how to cancel your subscription.


To cancel:

  1. Sign in to QuickBooks Online as an admin user.

Note: If you can't sign in, you should reset your password.

If you're cancelling your free trial:

  1. Select Settings ⚙ and then Account and Settings.
  2. Select Cancel your trial.
  3. Select Continue to cancel.
  4. Follow the steps on the screen.
  5. Select Submit and cancel subscription.
  6. Select Got it.

If you have a subscription:

  1. Select Settings ⚙ and then Account and Settings.
  2. Select the Billing and subscription tab.
  3. In the QuickBooks section, select Cancel subscription or Cancel online.
  4. Select Continue to cancel, then select the Continue to cancel button (if it shows on your screen).
  5. Follow the next steps.
  6. Select Submit and cancel subscription.
  7. Select Got it.

Once you're done, we'll send the account administrator an email that confirms we cancelled your subscription.

If your account is suspended, you need to resubscribe before you can cancel. Or, we’ll cancel your subscription after three failed attempts to charge your payment method.

Learn what happens to your data after you cancel

  • For paid subscriptions, we hang on to your data for up to a year. You can pick up where you left off if you decide to come back.

Tip: Consider printing forms and reports you might need in the future.

  • If you subscribe again after a year, you won't have access to your previous data.

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