Learn how to create a statement charge in QuickBooks Desktop.

A statement charge allows you to add a line item directly to a customer’s account register. It affects a customer’s balance but it doesn’t require you to send them an invoice.


Step 1: Add a statement charge

  1. Go to Customers, then select Enter Statement Charges.
  2. From the Customer:Job  dropdown, select the name of your customer or job.
  3. You can change the date of the statement charge if you need to.
  4. In the Item field, enter the item you use to track this kind of charge.
    Note:  You can change the description or amount of an item if you need to.
  5. Enter the quantity in the Qty field.
  6. Select Record.
