Marking Invoices as paid

When I receive checks from customers I want to make sure I enter it correctly so that the payment will make it to the income statement.

Sometimes checks from different customers and invoices are taken to the bank under one deposit for the total amount. What is the proceedure so the single deposit on my check register shows the breakdown of who made the payments.

Thank you

Marking Invoices as paid

Let me provide you some information about customer payments, JohnT3.


If multiple payments have been deposited, you can split the amount to show the breakdown of each of your invoice amounts. To do this, follow the steps below.

  1. Go to the Transactions menu.
  2. Find the transaction you want to split.
  3. Select Split from the Type column.

This opens the split transaction window:

  1. Select Percentage or Amount from the Split by ▼ dropdown.
  2. For each split, select Business or Personal from the Type ▼ dropdown.
  3. If you select Business, select the link in the Category column and select the category you want the split to go into.
  4. Enter the amount or percentage for each split.
  5. To add additional splits, select Add line.
  6. If you need to exclude a split, select the Exclude checkbox.
  7. When you're done, select Save.

In addition, make sure to categorise correctly your transactions on the correct line of your Schedule C to show it on your income statement. 


You can also manually add transactions from the CSV file if you're unable to connect to your credit card and bank accounts.
