Credit Card Cash Advance

Our company has taken a cash advance on our credit card.  I need to enter the transaction so I've gone to Make Deposits and chose the correct account to deposit to but I don't know what to put for Received From.   The money hasn't come from a customer, it's a cash advance from the bank.  Thank-you in advance for your help!

Credit Card Cash Advance

I appreciate you for adding more details about your concern, mjoal.

 

When making a deposit, the account entered in the Deposit To field should be a bank and not a credit card. The desktop program will prompt you the following message if you select the Visa Credit line” This account is the wrong type for this field”. Make sure to use the correct account type to properly track the transaction.cash ad.png


There’s no need to set up another account since you already have created the credit card account. All you have to do is input the cash advance in QuickBooks.

 

  1. Go to the Banking menu at the top to choose Make Deposits.
  2. Tap the Deposit To drop-down to select your bank account and enter the correct date in the appropriate box.
  3. In the Received From column, go to the first line and select your credit card vendor. For example, Visa Credit Card.
  4. Click the From Account drop-down and pick your Visa Credit line account.
  5. Type in the cash advance amount in the Amount (USD) field.
  6. Click Save & Close to keep the transaction.cash ad.1.png

If you still want to use your credit card information in the Deposit to and Received From fields, I suggest consulting an accountant. They can guide you on how to handle this type of scenario, especially for the posting account. I'm adding a link where you can search for an accountant in your area: Business is better with a ProAdvisor. 


You can bookmark this guide for future reference. It contains instructions on how to combine multiple entries into a single record and steps to record payments into the Undeposited Funds account: Record and make bank deposits in QuickBooks Desktop.

Leave the Received From field blank, or enter your CC vendor (the vendor you pay the CC bill do), and then use your CC account in the From Account field.

When I choose Deposit To and enter the CC account (where the $$ has gone into) then From Account can't be the same CC account .  I want the $$ deposited into the CC account but what then do I put for the From Account?  Do I need to set up the bank as a vendor?

Thanks for getting back to us, @mjoal.

 

Yes, you need to set up the bank account of your vendor so you can deposit the cash advance taken on your credit card. I'll show you:

 

  1. Go to the Lists menu and then choose Chart of Accounts.
  2. Select the Account drop-down at the bottom, then choose New to create a new account.
  3. Select an account type, then Continue.
  4. Enter the account details.
    1. Select the Subaccount of the checkbox if it's a child account.
    2. From the drop-down, choose the parent account.
  5. Hit Save and Close.

 

You can refer to this article for more info about the steps above: Create, edit, or delete account in QuickBooks.

 

Once done, you can now make a deposit the cash advance. I've added a sample screenshot for visual reference.

 

Also, here is an article you can read more about reconciliations in QBDT: Reconcile an account in QuickBooks Desktop.

I apologize, I still don't understand.  I see on your screen shot you have deposit to: Vendors Account and From Account: chequing.  We have a Visa Credit Line so the money is coming from the Visa Credit Line via the bank and was deposited to the Visa Credit Line so we now have a credit card statement showing the cash advance on it.  What is the second account I need to set up?  I have the Credit Line account set up in Chart of Accounts but I'm confused what I do next.  Thank-you for your patience in explaining this to me!
