Is it easier to make a three column spreadsheet with date, description, and category and upload it? Thanks.

Hello there, @Yehsherpa.

 

Thank you for joining this thread. Allow me to step in and share some more information about uploading transactions in QuickBooks Online.

 

Yes, you have the option to import bank transactions using Excel CSV files. You can either use the three-column or four-column format. This allows you to save time and effort in manually entering the transactions.

 

If you prefer automatic download of transaction from your bank to your QuickBooks account, you can also add and connect bank and credit card accounts.

 

Let me know which option you prefer, Yehsherpa. I'm still here to help you more if you have additional question about banking. Just drop a comment below.

Is the credit card account an asset in the chart of account (visa receivable / bank account?) or is it a liability (visa payable)?

Is the credit card bank account considered an asset (visa receivable) or a liability (visa payable)? I'm a little confused with which category to put our visa expenses on and how to mark down a visa payment with our checking account

Hi Reganrolfes,

 

It's not an asset, visa doesn't owe you money, you owe them thus a liability. If you are manually capturing these expenses on a journal entry, then you debit the expense acct for the individual charges and credit credit card payable. When you pay the credit card, debit the creditcard payable acct and credit the bank you paid from. If you are using the bank feed to ad, then you add/allocate the expenses to the proper exp acct and when you pay the creditcard you record as "credit card payment" on the options, select which card etc. Hope that helps.
