How do I cancel this service?

In which part of the following did you fail to unsubscribe that requires human intervention?


You can cancel your QBO account on the Billing & Subscription page. Then, your data will be available in a read-only access for one year from the cancellation date.

Here's how: 

  1. Click the Gear icon on the top menu.
  2. Choose Account and Settings and click Billing & Subscription.
  3. In the QuickBooks section, select Cancel (paid subscription) or Cancel Trial (if you’re using a trial).
  4. Choose Continue to Cancel, then Continue to Cancel again.
  5. Finally, answer the exit survey questions (to help us make QuickBooks better), then scroll down and select Confirm Cancel.

Then, you'll receive an email confirmation that you canceled your online subscription plan.

For more details about canceling your subscription, you can check out this article:


The above is really the quickest way to cancel. But if you still need a human, click on Contact Us and request a callback 


Here's how to request a callback:

  1. Sign in to your QuickBooks Online company.
  2. Click the Help icon in the upper right of the screen.
  3. Select Contact US on the pop-up. 
  4. Enter what you're needing assistance with in the How can we help? field and choose Continue
  5. Click Get a callback.
  6. Enter your contact information.
  7. Select Call me.

After that, just wait to be contacted by a member of the support team.

The following is a brief video to serve as an example of this process:



Know that after your cancel your account, we hang on to your data for one year. This lets you pick up where you left off if you decide to come back. We delete the data after that.

  1. Go to the Help menu then select Contact us.

Let's ensure that there any other subscriptions you might have left uncancelled, pixelkat.


You can log in to your QuickBooks Online account through a private browser since it doesn't store cache files that might have caused the unexpected behavior. You can use these keyboard shortcuts to open one:


  • Google Chrome: Ctrl + Shift + N
  • Mozilla Firefox: Ctrl + Shift + P
  • Safari: Command + Option + P

Follow the steps on how to cancel your subscription as shared by my colleagues above. If you see that your accounts are canceled, you can switch back to the main browser to fully verify and clear the cache. Other browsers can also help you isolate these kinds of issues. 


If you get the same result, I'd suggest contacting our Phone Support Team so can cancel it for you. 


Keep me posted on how this works. I'm just around the corner to help. Take care!

I cancelled last month - you attempted to bill me this month and now its sitting with a suspended status. I do not want this service nor do I desire to be billed an additional time. Hence why I unsubscribed last month.  Please correct account - a human would understand the frustration in my text and respond with empathy over the phone while they reviewed the account.

Same problem, have been billed two months in a row now.  Crooked company,  putting the survey before the cancel process is not cool. Then they have a little barely visible continue and cancel as it already seems as though you did when leaving negative reviews.  They get those.   Dont give refunds back either.  really shady tactics company.

You're not stupid.  I cancelled online following the directions and they kept charging me for another month.  I'm on phone now with someone who is trying to get a manager to reverse a charge they made after I cancelled online.   This is ridiculous.
