Delete a bank statement line in Xero

If you've imported a duplicate (or the wrong) transaction from your bank account into Xero, delete the bank statement line in Xero that represents that bank transaction.

Deleting personal expenses

Personal expenses from a business bank account are recognised as money drawn out of the business. Instead of deleting the bank statement line, business owners often code personal expenses to a drawings account.

It's best to check with your accountant or bookkeeper to make sure you're handling personal expenses correctly.
