If I deposited a check to my business account that should have been deposited to my personal account (along with other business checks) what is the best way to fix it?

The deposit now shows up among my banking transactions. Should I delete or exclude that deposit and use the "receive payment" function for the other checks in the deposit, and then transfer the money back out of my business account and delete or exclude that transaction also, when it shows up among my bank transactions?

Hello, sharperedge. 

 

You got me here, and I'll help you with this. 

 

Yes, you can exclude the business check on the bank feeds of the business account. This is to prevent the entry from showing up when you reconcile the bank. Then, make sure to move transfer the deposit to the personal account in QuickBooks. Here's how to do it: 

 

  1. Go to Banking from the left navigation bar 
  2. Select the business account, then go to the For Review tab. 
  3. Mark the deposited check. 
  4. From the Batch actions drop-down, choose Exclude Selected 

Upon sharing this, I still recommend reaching out to your accountant for advice on these transactions. He/She might have specific instructions on how to handle the deposit. 

 

Once done, you can record your customer's invoice payment. You can refer to these articles, to record in different ways: 

 

That should do it! This will allow you to record and deposit your customer's payments systematically in QuickBooks.
