Add accounts

Although Flare's chart of account groups and accounts are probably sufficient, you may want to add your own account groups and accounts.


Account Group: a broad category such as "Cash & Bank".

Account: an account within a group, such as "Checking" within the group "Cash & Bank" to which transactions are recorded.

To add accounts, do the following:

  1. Click the Settings gear icon in Flare's top menu (1 below) and then click Chart of Accounts (2) in the Settings left menu.


  2. Click a category tab (3 below) and click the + icon of the account category to which you'd like to add an account (4).

  3. Enter an account number, and account name (5 below). Make sure the Active checkbox is checked.

    Entering account number and name

  4. Click Save (7 above).
