How to delete company in QuickBooks online and start over

if you are within the first 60 days (90 for non-US accounts) of starting your subscription Log into your QBO account, then look at your home page URL, it ends with /homepage, replace the homepage with purgecompany and hit enter (this deletes everything in the accounting)

other wise you either delete everything one transaction at a time

or cancel this subscription and start a new one
Note: Purge does not work at all for simple start, cancel and start a new subscription

How to delete company in QuickBooks online and start over

Let me give you a clearer view of what Rustler said, 1122.

 

If your account has been active for more than 90 days, you'll need to cancel your current subscription, and subscribe to a new one. This is also applicable if you're using QuickBooks Online Simple Start.

 

If your account has been active for less than 90 days, we can do the purge process to delete the data. This process is only applicable for QuickBooks Online Essentials and Plus versions.

  1. Log in to your QuickBooks Online account.
  2. Edit the URL and include /purgecompany.
    For example, your URL shows https://sg.qbo.intuit.com/app/homepage. You'll need to change it to https://sg.qbo.intuit.com/app/purgecompany.
  3. This will display the summary of data that will be deleted. Type Yes.
  4. Click OK.

You can use this article for your reference: Deleting Online Data and Starting Over.

 

Let me know how this goes so I assist you more if necessary.
