Removing erroneous accounts from GL

I am taking over some bad bookkeeping.  There are accounts in the GL, with balances, for assets we no longer own.  How do I remove these balances from 2017 & 2018?  HELP!!

Removing erroneous accounts from GL

Thank you for posting here in Community, @wenhap.


To change the balance of the account you can create a journal entry. Journal entry can be used in making an adjustment on the account and it will be posted to your GL.


To create a journal entry, here's how:

  1. On your left navigation pane, click +New.
  2. Choose Journal entry, fill out the needed information to create your journal entry.
  3. Click Save and New or Save and Close.

Let me share Video tutorial about journal entry: Create a journal entry in QuickBooks Online.
