Requiring Accounts for Transactions in Quickbooks
Selecting this option means that you cannot record a transaction unless you have assigned the transaction to an account. If you disable the option, QuickBooks will create accounts for uncategorized income and uncategorized expenses, which makes producing accurate reports impossible. To make sure that this option is enabled:
- Choose Edit | Preferences from the QuickBooks menu bar.
- Click the Accounting icon on the left pane to open the Accounting preferences, and click the Company Preferences tab.
- Check to be sure that the Require Accounts option is selected in the QuickBooks preferences
