Glad to have you here, jim-p-borabora-p. I'm here to help you figure this out.

 

In QuickBooks Self-Employed, marking the invoice as paid will not automatically tag this as income since the Invoices page is not connected to your Transactions page. You would need to record the income through the Transactions tab by selecting the Business income on the transaction line, as the invoices are non-posting.

 

Here are the steps:

 

  1. Click the Transactions menu and select Add transaction.
  2. Enter all the needed information.
  3. Select the income category.
  4. Click on Save.

That's it! Feel free to comment below if you have any additional questions. I'm here to keep helping.

This is an absolute pain in the...!!! So, now I have to go back through months of invoices, retyping out all of the details to add transactions to show up as income? Why can't the system just automatically transfer this info across, otherwise what's the point in using this system at all if in the end it creates more work? Isn't there a quicker way of doing this? Is it something we / I should've done when invoicing in the first place to avoid all the extra time this will now require? Very frustrating and not clear at all.

Hello El Hutt, 

 

So in the Self Employed account, the invoice page is not linked to the transaction page. The invoice page is just for your reference only. You would still have to record the transaction in the transaction section.
