Deleted account shows up on balance sheet with balance of adjustment made by a representative
There are two main factors why the deleted accounts show on the report, kmsbookkeeping.
The factors are the date range and how we filter the active columns.
If you filter the Balance Sheet report affecting the date range of the deleted bank account, the account will display on the report.
Also, let’s make sure that we have filtered the Show non-zero or active columns only field to Active. It’s possible that we have selected All in this field, that is why the bank account shows on the report. Let me show you how:
Click the Reports tab.
Enter and select Balance Sheet.
Filter the Report period.
In the Show non-zero or active only drop-down, select Active.
Click Run report.
With regard to the adjustment, the system automatically created it. When we delete a bank account that has transactions, QuickBooks will create an adjustment. Ths is to offset the amount so your account will have an accurate reporting.
