How can I add new expense categories to QuickBooks? Thanks, Jennifer

This is something that I can walk you through, Jennifer. 

 

You can go to your Chart of Accounts to create a new expense category. Here's how:

 

  1. Go to the Accounting menu, then click Chart of Accounts.
  2. Click New in the upper-right hand corner.
  3. Select Expense or Other Expense for Account Type
  4. Choose a Detail Type.
  5. Enter the name of the new expense category.
  6. Type in all other details such as Number or Description.
  7. Click Save and Close

Here's an article that also talks about creating new accounts and sub-accounts in QuickBooks Online: How Do I Create A New Account Or Subaccount In QuickBooks?

 

Let me know if you need more help getting around QuickBooks. See you around!

Hello Ljc2,

 

Are you using QuickBooks Online or QuickBooks Desktop or QuickBooks Online Mobile App?

 

The Accounting section is found in the left navigation tab in QuickBooks Online. Please see the image below.

 

 

 

For QuickBooks Desktop, please click on the List menu and select Chart of Accounts.

 

 

For QBO Mobile App, there's currently no option to add an account. You'll have to do  it using by logging your QBO account using a web browser. 

 

Let us know if you have more questions. Thanks!
