Show Past Due stamp on invoices

While scrolling through the invoices, it is easy to overlook those that are past their payment dates. Showing a “Past Due” stamp helps you identify these invoices so you can take action and minimize delayed collection of dues.

You can also email and print these invoices with the stamp to send to your customers.

This feature is available in QuickBooks Desktop for Windows 2018 and later, and QuickBooks Desktop for Mac 2019.
