QB auto generated closing entries

Let me add a few pieces of information, Drhaley.

When you close your books, our program will create year-end adjustments automatically based on your fiscal year start month. It helps you prepare for the coming year. We're unable to delete them.


However, in your case, you never added a date or password, I suggest reaching out to our customer care support so an agent can take a better look at your reports. Here's how:

  1. Click Help inside QuickBooks.
  2. Go to QuickBooks Desktop Help.
  3. Click Contact Us.
  4. Enter "Closing of books" in the description field, then click Continue.
  5. Select either Message an Agent or Talk to a Specialist

The Community is available 24/7. Don't hesitate to let us know if you have other concerns. We're around to help you.

QB auto generated closing entries

Just to update anyone ending up on the last page - it is my understanding that the problem was not / is not about actual closing entries - it is about the way reports are generated.

The problem is that it appears QB automatically created the entries, when it was only a "bad" function of the report engine for that specific report (Which in my case is a quick report on an account that spans over the new year).

Note that the solution was posted, which is to use a different report that does not total amounts from the prior year. Please see the start of this forum post for the steps required.
