Chart of accounts - edit nominal accounts code description

I would like to modify the description.

For example the code may read “MOTOR EXPENSES” .
I would like to change it say to say “Motor Bike Expenses”

or Training Costs change to Courses, Training etc

How can I change the description ?


The names of some nominals that come with your account aren’t editable. You can however create another nominal code through the Chart of Accounts with a custom name.

Please let us know if you need any help with this

yes, but how do you edit the nominal codes that are editable?

Every code has a little cog wheel icon next to it in the chart of accounts, if it’s editable the icon is yellow and clickable, if it isn’t editable then the icon is greyed out.
