Print Chart of Account WITH Account Numbers

Hello,

 

This feature is in QuickBooks Online.

 

1. Make sure you have account numbers turned on in Gear Icon/Account and Settings/Advanced

2. Make sure you have account numbers entered in the account number field for an account

3. From your Chart of Accounts, click "Run Report" in the upper right corner

 

This should give you a report of your Chart of Accounts with the account number.  You can also add or remove columns by clicking the customize button on the report screen.

Print Chart of Account WITH Account Numbers

I am setting up a small home business in QB desktop.  I am trying to find an example chart of accounts COA with standard account numbers. Is there such a report that gives me ideas on how to number my COA?

 

Thank you in advance for your time.

Hi there, Melissa!

 

I'd be glad to help you with your concern.

 

Great idea you have there. I can see having a report that can guide you on how to assign account numbers to your chart of accounts would be helpful.

 

Default account numbers are based on Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), I'd suggest consulting your accountant so you'd be guided in assigning them.

 

You'll want to go to your Preferences to enable the account number feature. Here are the steps: 

  1. Click the Edit button, then select Preferences.
  2. Go to the Accounting tab.
  3. Select the Company Preferences tab.
  4. Check the Use account number box.
  5. Click OK
