Re: Link ACH payment to the bill

Hi there, @innaangeloci.


It's nice to have you on the Community. I'd be happy to help walk you through in linking the ACH payment to the bills in QuickBooks Desktop. 


You can use the Pay Bills to record the payment. Let me show you how:

  1. From the Vendors menu, select Pay Bills.
  2. Select the appropriate account from the A/P Account drop-down.
  3. Select the bills you want to pay from the table.
  4. Choose the PAYMENT Date and Check as the Method (though you're not paying with an actual check).
  5. Select Assign check number
  6. From the Account drop-down, select the appropriate account from which you want to pay the bills.
  7. Select Pay Selected Bills.
  8. You can leave the check number blank, or you can enter something to indicate the type of payment, like, ACH.
  9. Click OK then Done.

I've attached an article for additional reference: Pay bills in QuickBooks Desktop.
