Hi there, ann.


I'm here to help you manage your duplicate funds transfer in QuickBooks Online (QBO).


Considering the information you have provided, it would be advisable to create a journal entry (JE) to transfer the duplicate cash transfer from the previous financial year to the current financial year. However, I recommend seeking guidance from your accountant or accounting professional to ensure that you choose the appropriate accounts for this transaction.


To create a JE, here's how:


  1. In QBO, go to the + New button and choose Journal entry.
  2. On the first line, select an account from the Account field. Depending on if you need to debit or credit the account, enter the amount in the correct column.
  3. From the next line, choose the other account you're moving money to or from. Depending on if you entered a debit or credit on the first line, enter the same amount in the opposite column.
  4. Enter information in the memo section so you know why you made the journal entry.
  5. Fill in the other necessary fields.
  6. Hit Save and close.


To learn more about creating JE, check out this article: Create journal entries in QuickBooks Online.


I'm also adding this article that tackles managing and transferring funds in QBO, consider checking out this article: Transfer funds between accounts.


Please let me know if you have additional questions about this or anything else. I'm always here to assist. Take care.
