How do I delete and change some accounts in the chart of accounts? The initial setup is a disaster. Using Quickbooks Online Essentials?
I have a client using QBO Essentials and none of the accounts in the Chart of Accounts have an option to Delete. The only options are Edit or Make Inactive - even accounts she created with no transactions in them. Is there a setting somewhere to allow Deletes - I haven't been able to find anything. Thanks!
