Welcome to the QuickBooks Community, christinaleeml-g. My priority is to provide you with information about recording a commission and transferring it to the broker. With this, please allow me to share details on how you can enter them in our program by following the steps outlined below.
To start with, QuickBooks Online currently does not have the option to directly record a commission and use them when a project is done to a broker.
Meanwhile, I recommend depositing the amount of commission to a Trust account. This way, you'll be able to keep the money in the bank and use a specific Income account. To ensure your records are in shipshape, I suggest consulting an accountant before performing the process. They can provide suggestions on how to properly handle the entry, especially with the category to use.
If you haven't created an account, you can follow the steps on how to create a new one.
Once done, you can start depositing the commission. Then open this article for directions on how to complete the processes: Record and make bank deposits in QuickBooks Online.
After that, you'll have to create cheques once you already paid the broker. This is to track all the money out and make sure to use the Trust account you've created. Please follow these steps:
Lastly, you may refer to this article to view details on how to run a specific report to reflect all payments made to suppliers or expenses: Run a report with supplier totals.
I'm only a post away if you still have other concerns about recording commission in QBO. I'm always here to keep helping. Wishing you a wonderful rest of the week, christinaleeml-g.
