QB Issue Resolution:
When you inactivate a customer that has an open balance or uncollectable balance in QuickBooks Online (QBO), the system will automatically create an adjusting transaction to offset the balance. Doing so will ensure that you’ll have an accurate record in your books.
However, we don’t recommend inactive your customers who have an open balance. To accurately track your customers unpaid balance, you’ll need to record it as a bad debt. This way, your accounts receivable and net income are up-to-date.
- Go to the Gear icon.
- Under Your Company, select Chart of Accounts.
- Select New at the upper right corner.
- From the Account Type drop-down, select Expenses.
- From the Detail Type drop-down, select Bad debts.
- In the Name field, enter Bad debts.
- Click Save and Close.

I also recommend reaching out to your accountant. This way, you’ll be guided properly in ensuring an accurate tracking of your income and expense transactions.
