Regarding the Enter bill, from the invoice from the vendor, it has " products insurance cost" and "Claim" on it.
Because the containers were shipped from oversea, and the bill added insurance and deposit which is Claim.
I was wondering which account I need to create to enter the bill correctly?
Hello Desiree 869,
I'm glad to hear that you're still working through the different ways you can enter your bills and make sure that they're set up correctly for your books in QuickBooks Desktop. I remember in your last post that you mentioned working with an accountant, and I recommend touching base with him or her in this instance as well.
As a QuickBooks Team member, I'm able to offer you technical support advice. I'm not trained as an accountant, so knowing which account to pick or create for various transactions is outside of my scope. It's important to me that you get these details right, and I want to avoid steering you down the wrong path by telling you an account that doesn't work for your needs.
What I can do in this instance is let you know how to create an account if you're looking to make a new one. It's a fairly simple process and there are a number of ways to do it, including from a bill. I'll outline how to do it from the bill.
I've got an article that explains more about setting up accounts in the chart of accounts. Check it out here: Understand QuickBooks Chart of Accounts
That should get you on your way. Let me know if you need clarification!
