How do I include a supplier credit in a bill payment, in addition to the individual bills included in the payment?

Hello,

 

QuickBooks Online helps you create supplier credits quickly and easily so that you're able to put them towards future bills. If you have a bill you'd like to apply a supplier credit to, I'd be happy to explain how simple it is to do this. 

 

Follow these steps to pay bills (or partially pay bills) using supplier credits:

 

Step 1: Enter the supplier credits

  1. Select + New.
  2. Select Supplier Credit.
  3. In the Supplier field, select the appropriate supplier name.
  4. Enter the Date, Amount, and Account (the account used here is typically the original expense account on the original bill).
  5. Select Save and close.

Step 2: Pay the bill using the supplier credits

  1. Select + New.
  2. Select Expense or Cheque. Note: Both Expense and Cheque recognize and record the expense. When you use Cheque, the transaction adds to the list of cheques that you can print.
  3. In the Choose a payee drop-down, select the supplier name.
  4. Leave the Ref/Cheque no, Date, Amount and Memo fields blank.
  5. In the Add to Expense or Add to Cheque section, select Add for the outstanding bill and supplier credit.
  6. Select Save and close.

Now your supplier credit has been added to the outstanding bill! For more information about this process, take a look at this helpful article:
