I have someone else that sells goods for me and I pay her the credit card fees associated with those sales.Is there a way to do that on the supplied invoices?
Hi there Tammy L,
Accurately accounting for bank and credit card fees is an important part of managing your business' books. QuickBooks Online makes it easy to account for these fees and I'm happy to show you how.
One way you can do this is to create a Non-inventory item to represent the credit card fees you're paying. When entering a bill or expense for your supplier or seller, you can simply enter it as a line item. If you need to include this item on an invoice for a customer, you can enter it as a negative amount so that it subtracts from the amount that the customer owes.
You also have the option to create a supplier to represent the credit card company. You can then create expenses or bills and select the credit card company as the supplier.
When it comes to selecting appropriate accounts and categories for these transactions and items, it's best to consult your accountant. They have the know-how to provide you with advice that is best suited to your business. If you're already working with an accountant, navigate to the My Accountant tab where you can invite them to work on your books with you.
