I am trying to correct/restructure my chart of accounts for the Expense and Cost of Goods Sold areas and am running into several issues: 1). I use account numbers and sub-account numbers. QB will not let me change the account to which a sub-account is connected to. For example my #660 payroll expense sub-account currently points to account #6000-Operating Expenses . I want to change it to point to a new expense account #6500-Payroll & Benefits instead. But I get a warning about employees and 1099 preferences... what? No employees are 1099 eligible. 2). An account that was originally established as a Cost of Goods Sold account, is really an expense account. But QB will not let me change the account type from GOGS to Expense. At the account level, QB won't let me change because there are sub-accounts. At the sub-account level, QB won't let me change types because the master account has not been changed. It seems like a real "Catch-22" situation. So then how do I do this??
