How to remove old account and add a new back account


How to remove old account and add a new back account

Hi horkanelectrical,


You can inactivate the bank account in the Chart of Accounts and create a new one. I'll show you how.


  1. Go to Accounting and select Chart of Accounts.
  2. Locate the bank you want to inactivate.
  3. Click on the Account history drop-down arrow and choose Make inactivate.
  4. Select Yes to confirm.

Then, create a new bank account once done.


If your bank account is set up to Bank Feeds, make sure to disconnect the online connection before inactivating it. Then, connect it to QuickBooks Online (QBO).


I've added a link that you can read and learn how to review bank transactions after you download them into QBO: Match and categorise bank transactions in QuickBooks Online.
