Delete an account

You can delete an account from your chart of accounts if all these statements are true:

  • No transactions are posted to the account.
  • The account is not a control account with subsidiary ledgers.
  • The account was not automatically activated when you enabled a tab.
  • The account is not Retained earnings, a mandatory account present by default in all businesses.

Under Settings, click on Chart of Accounts, then Edit next to the account you want to delete:

If no Delete button is available, one of the other conditions has not been satisfied. In other words, Manager will not let you delete an account needed for proper functioning of the tabs you have enabled or necessary for proper maintenance of your account records.
