Creating a New Account

Chart of Accounts

The Chart of Accounts in Zoho Books consists of a wide range of accounts that are generally used with any type of business. The accounts are classified into different types such as Income, Expense, Equity, Liability & Assets. If you are not sure about customizing accounts for your business or on different business scenarios, please take the help of your accountant or bookkeeper.






Chart of Accounts

Any extra account that you add from the other modules, i.e, adding an account in the banking module, adding an inventory account, creating a new purchase account in the inventory module, will be reflected in the chart of accounts.

Creating a New Account

To create a new account in the chart of accounts, navigate to Accountant > Chart of Accounts and select +New Account.
