Categorizing your expenses in detail is a great way to keep your bookkeeping on top.
QuickBooks Online offers you to set up sub-accounts under parent account so that you can break down your expenses into details. I'll show you how to do it.
Go to Settings and select Chart of Accounts.
Choose the account type and detail type.
Select Is sub-account and then enter the parent account.
Give your new sub-account a name and add a description if possible.
Select a When do you want to start tracking your finances from this account in QuickBooks option. Note: Only some account types need this, like a bank, credit card, asset, and liability. If you need help, you can learn more about opening balances.
