How to Reverse an Entry in Quickbooks


If you have made an entry in Quickbooks and need to reverse it, you may be able to. As of January 2010, there are two editions of Quickbooks that allows a user to reverse an entry. If you use QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions or QuickBooks Premier Accountant, you can reverse any journal entry that has been entered into the program. Reversing an entry in Quickbooks can be done quickly and easily and will keep all your accounts in balance.

Things You'll Need
