How to Delete Everything and Start Over?

Sometimes you want to start from a fresh slate. Understandable! If you want to delete everything and start over, you certainly can.  

A couple of notes about starting over:

  • GoDaddy Bookkeeping automatically "closes the books" when the tax year comes to an end on December 31.  The number beside the sun/clouds at the top of the screen is a Year-to-Date profit or loss number; it does not contain anything from last year.  It is not necessary to delete last year's data if you don't want to! 
  • Remember, once you've deleted an importer, you'll lose ALL the historical data that it contains.  Even if you decide to re-add it later, you won't be able to go back as far! 

The easiest way is first to delete any importers you have attached to your account. Deleting your importer(s) will automatically remove all of the old transactions and make the next step a lot easier:

After your imported accounts are deleted, you'll want to remove any transactions that were manually entered or those that you got into GoDaddy Bookkeeping via CSV import:

If any QFX files were manually uploaded, use these steps to delete the account(s), and it's transactions:

Then, you would want to remove any data-mappings that were previously created:

Using these steps will get you as close to a 'fresh' account as possible.
