Updating item to a different income account

Hi,

 

I have a item that i have created and now 3 months down the track i have reasised i should have put a different Income Account on this items to seperate it. Is there a way to update the items and update all previous items to this or do i need to do each transaction individually?

 

Thanks

    Thank you for your post and welcome to the Community Forum.

     

    Future bills will be impacted by updating the item's income account, the account utilized in the previously recorded transaction remains unchanged. It is not possible to simply alter the income account used in previously recorded transactions, instead, you must drill down into each transaction, make changes to the selected account, or remove and reenter the transaction line before saving it. 

     

    Therefore, instead of updating all the past sales individually, it would be better to record journal entries to transfer the applicable value from the original income account to the newly created one. You can use reports to work out the total value to be transferred. 

     

    I hope this helps. If you need further assistance with this or if you have questions and concerns, please feel free to post again. We are happy to help.
