Edit an existing nominal ledger account

If you need to edit the details of a nominal ledger account, you can do so easily in Sage Business Cloud Accounting.

You can’t change the ledger name or category of control accounts or exclude them from the Chart of Accounts. Control accounts are marked with an asterisk.

  • 1. Go to Settings, then click Chart of Accounts.
  • 2. Click the nominal ledger account you want to edit.
  • 3. Make the necessary changes.

If you change the category of a nominal account, Sage Business Cloud Accounting doesn’t update any transactions posted to the nominal account with the new category. However, it will change where they are listed in reports.

  • 4. Click Save.
