How to Change Company Start Date in QuickBooks?

In QuickBooks Desktop software, while opening the company files, the users have to give the start date which shows the starting point of the transactions. This way, QuickBooks can organize the accounts effectively, without making any changes to the accounts and transactions. If however, for some reasons, the starting date is given wrong or you need to change the starting date, the account balance prior to that date becomes the opening balance. So, while entering transactions, if the starting date needs to be changed in the middle, the user has to adjust this opening balance and should make the new entries in such a way that the entries can be adjusted with the new date.

Let us check out below how to change company start date in QuickBooks

The steps are as follows:

  • Go to menu bar of QuickBooks
