You can make adjusting entries in the Make General Journal Entries window.
Adjusted journal entries are entered by accountants to make after-the-fact
changes to specific accounts. Accountants make adjustments for a variety of
reasons, including booking depreciation or amortization, reallocating accruals
and reversing accruals of prepaid income or expenses; adjusting sales tax
payable for interest, penalties, or discounts; and entering bank or credit card
fees or interest.
Note: All general journal entries written by QuickBooks Fixed Asset
Manager (QBFAM) will have the Adjusting Entry checkbox marked by default.
Note: Existing transactions from updated company files will not have
the Adjusting Entries checkbox selected by default. Similarly, transactions
made in QuickBooks Pro and Premier will not have this checkbox selected
by default, unless the transaction was already marked as an adjusted entry in
Premier Accountant Edition or higher.

careful not to enter a duplicate number.
