New LIMITS--Are SUB-ACCOUNTS counted toward the limit allowed for Chart of Accounts for QBO Plus?

We have many accounts in our Chart of Accounts that we do not use and have a ZERO balance so I am working on inactivating those---The question lingering however is:

 

For QBO PLUS the Usage Limits stat 250 accounts are allowed under Chart of Accounts. Are SUB-ACCOUNTS counted toward this limit?

 

Some of my sub-accounts have numbers assigned to them (just like all of the parent accounts have numbers), but other sub-accounts do not have numbers assigned. Does this matter?

I have some clarification to provide on your question regarding sub-accounts, @VM2018.

 

Sub-accounts do count towards the Usage Limit total. However, as you've mentioned, Inactive accounts and items will not. If you've been meaning to take an opportunity to clean up your books and rid of the Accounts you're not using, now's the time!

 

For more information on Usage Limits, I recommend checking out our detailed guide on the matter here. If you have any questions about this or QuickBooks Online Advanced, I'm always available right here in the Community to lend a helping hand.

 

Please reach out to me here should you have any additional questions or concerns, I'll be your number one resource for QuickBooks. Thanks for dropping in, I look forward to hearing from you again.

You think they are? Does anyone have a direct answer to both  of my questions?
