You can delete any Nominal Code (Local/Master) within an accounting period provided that the account does not contain transactions. Local accounts are identified by this   icon, which appears in the Local column.

Delete a Local Account

  1. Select the account by clicking in the left most column in the row that contains the account.
    An arrow appears in the selected column and the row is also highlighted. 

Row selection in the Chart of Account grid

  1. Press the [Delete] key or select Delete from the Task Bar.
    CCH AP asks for confirmation before deleting the account.

If the account cannot be deleted, either because it contains transactions or it is a master code, an appropriate message is displayed.
