Hi

We are currently using quickbooks, we did wrong entries a couple of months ago, for example we hired a guys to help us reorganize the wires in the server room, the bookkeeper recorded them as computer equipments,  now we now that's not computer equipments, it should be recorded in Consultant Expenses.
Can i directly change my entry(entered 2 months ago), or do i have to enter a current credit on Computer expenses and enter a new debit on Consultant fee.
In other words can go back in time and just edit the previously entered transaction or do i have to it with the current date.

Please explain and advise

Yes you can go back and change it. QB will ask you if you are sure, since its in the past.

Yes, QB will let you go back and directly change entries (Assuming there isn't a closing date and password set), but whether you should or not would depend on your accountant and how your books are done.  

If all your doing is changing accounts, and no reporting to 'government like' agencies have been done since they were entered, you should be alright in changing them.  As no one here knows your books, I would strongly suggest talking with your accountant/tax professional for their suggestions.

Not changing ammounts, just changing categories.
