Can I make a bank account inactive

Yes, you can inactivate a bank account info.


If the account has a balance, QuickBooks will create a journal entry to zero it out. Please know that the transactions in the account will remain on your records and will still affect you reports.


To inactivate an account:

  1. Click the Gear icon and choose Chart of Accounts.
  2. Click the down arrow beside View register in the ACTION column.
  3. Choose Make Inactive.
  4. Select Yes to confirm.

To see your list on inactive accounts, you can click the Gear icon above the Chart of accounts table. Then, place a checkmark in the Include Inactive checkbox.


Please let me know if you have additional questions about inactivating your account.
