Quickbooks Invoice Numbering

Can I reuse old invoice numbers?

Didn't find your answer?

I just have a question regarding invoice numbers for a small business. Our invoice number sequence is a very long number. We started with #1001 in 1995 and now it's getting close to #200000. We still manually enter written invoices into Quickbooks and the longer the invoice number gets, the more often it's being entered incorrectly. Can we restart with the #1001 and set it up in Quickbooks so the duplicate invoice number message doesn't pop up when the original invoice is dated back so far? Another question- All of our Quickbooks records are still in Quickbooks dating back to 1995. Is it customary to keep those records in Quickbooks for 20+ years? Thanks for your help!

A number of accounting business owners have chosen to go for QuickBooks Online (QBO) because they think it is convenient and more economical.

Yes you can, some clients also add a period which helps with the QBs warning pop-up.
