When you use a credit card to pay for goods & services, there are three ways to record those purchases into your QuickBooks company file. Pay your credit card in full each month - paper check or online #1 - If you pay your monthly bill in full, just Write a Check to the credit card company. You will then "expense" the charges in the accounting section of the check. Don't forget that yo u have two tabs in the section where you enter your expenses....one is for expenses, and one is for items (affect inventory & Cost o f Goods Sold). You can switch back and forth between the two tabs in order to record all expenses and items purchased with the credit card. The total of the two tabs should equal the total of the Credit Card Amount you wish to pay. If you pay your card online, you can enter "online" or the authorization number as the check number. #2 - Select Enter Bills to create a bill. Use the same method to "expense" the cha

Transfer Funds Between Bank Accounts

Image
If you are like most of us, you have two or more business bank accounts and often transfer funds between accounts. There is an easy way to do this in QuickBooks! You may have one account for your General Operating Funds, another for Payroll or Credit Card Processing, or a Business Savings account.

I'll use my business practice as an example: I maintain a separate checking account into which customer payments made by credit card are deposited. This allows me to track credit card deposits and the time it takes to post in a separate account. It also makes reconciling my bank accounts so much simpler. Once a week, I transfer the funds online from t he Credit Card Account to the Operating Account. Then I make a simple transfer in QuickBooks by using the BANKING module located at the center of the top tool bar in QuickBooks. From the
