How do I archive nominal accounts in Sage 200?

November 28, 2023

In Sage 200 if you have nominal accounts that you no longer wish to use the recommended approach would be to mark them as hidden.

This is quicker and easier than deleting the nominal account and has the advantage that the transaction history remains intact, and it can be undone if required.

The option to hide nominal accounts was added to Sage 200 from the 2018 release.

To hide a nominal account, amend the account:

Nominal Ledger > Nominal Accounts > Amend Account Details

A hidden nominal account does not appear in list views and cannot be selected when processing transactions.

The Sage 200 help file gives more details of what happens when you hide a nominal account.
