Hello I'm new to QB and want to delete all my 2020 data so I can start fresh with January 2021. what do I have to do so I don't have to edit the whole year of 2020?

Hello there, @userjdavis8134.

 

You can purge the data of your account if your subscription is less than 60 days old. However, if it's more than 60 days I'd recommend adding a new subscription and cancel an old one.

 

Here's how to purge your data:

 

  1. Log in to your QuickBooks Online account.
  2. Change the URL to include /purgecompany.
  3. Example: URL shows https://qbo.intuit.com/c28/app/homepage, change to: https://qbo.intuit.com/c28/app/purgecompany.
  4. The next screen will provide a summary of the items to be deleted.
  5. Type the word “YES” once the data gets deleted, then click OK.
  6. Click Wipe Data once your selections are complete.
  7. Once the deletion is complete, you will be rerouted to your home page.

If not, you'll need to cancel your account, and start a new subscription.

 

To cancel your account:

 

  1. Sign in to your QuickBooks Online company at https://qbo.intuit.com.
  2. Go to the Settings, select Account and settings.
  3. Select Billing and Subscription and click the Cancel Subscription link in the subscription plan section.
  4. Follow the on-screen prompts and it'll walk you through the rest of the process.

 

To subscribe to a new one:

 

  1. Go to https://quickbooks.intuit.co+-0m01/choose-country/.
  2. Fill in the User ID and password section.
  3. You can use the same user ID and a password you previously had. This is the best option for you if you have activated payroll.

 

You can read through this article for additional information: Delete QuickBooks Online data and start from scratch.

 

That will provide you with information about your concern.

 

Please don't hesitate to let me know in the comment section if you have other questions. I'd be happy to help you in any way I can. Have a good one.

Open a new blank QBO account and cancel your old one.
