How to delete a bank transaction

Hi, My client added their bank feed but the uploaded transactions include dates prior to the current year. (these were accounted for in another software)

I want to delete these transactions but I do not see how. I use the bank rec screen and click on the transaction but I cannot see a delete option, I only see 'Split' or 'Add'. When I click on the 'plus' button on the upper right hand of the screen I also do not see a delete option.

Where should I be looking instead?

Re: Hi, you can exclude and delete the downloaded transaction...

Hello!
I am having the same problem. There is no option for delete. 

I am using Quickbooks self-employed. When I go to view my bank, I can edit the bank name, but there is nothing that says I can see those transactions and delete them. What should I do? 

thanks!

Hi,  storywildstudios 

 

Move to the Transaction screen > checkmark the transaction > then from the top bar select Exclude ( same option is available by clicking the small triangle icon then checkmark Exclude this transaction (this is for duplicates, reimbursements, customer refunds, and returned purchases) )

 

OR to Delete the entire transactions delete the Bank/Credit card and add again to download last 90days transactions ( most banks allow only last 90 days transactions so check, PayPal allows to download transactions older than 90 days ) transactions older than the 90 days need to be uploaded manually.

Note: You can filter the transactions to display such Unreviewed, Transfer, Excluded etc.

Re: How to delete a bank transaction

What if the transaction is in the bank reconciliation list but not in the Review Tab, which is the problem I have.  It is also in a prior year.  It is still floating around as an uncleared transaction but it doesn't need to be there at all.  How does one remove these?

Thanks for joining this conversation, @darronk.

 

If the transactions are not showing on the For Review tab, but are on the bank reconciliation list, you can delete them through the register.

 

Here's how:

 

1. Go to the Gear icon at the upper right.
2. Pick Chart of Accounts under Your Company column.
3. Locate the bank account, then click View Register under Action column.

4. Select the transaction, then Delete.
5. Hit Yes to confirm.

That should do the trick. Please let me know if you need anything else in the comment section. I'll be here to answer them. Cheers!
