I recently linked a business credit card to our QB account, and am in the process of recording all the charges/payments. We make intermittent payments on the credit card through the cards website (the payments are made from our checking account, which is not currently synced to QB...they are input manually. Working on getting checking account synced...will most likely be my next post ;o). The payments that were made are showing up as "CC Credits" in the synced transactions, and I am not sure what to do with them. Here are the questions I have...
1. Do I record them, and if so do I need to "match" them to the payment we made from our checking account?
2. When recording, what "payee" and "account" do I put them under? I classified all the other expenses to their appropriate expense account, but dont know how to handle these!
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide!
Hello there, @NoviceButTrying. I can help you with how to record transactions in QuickBooks Desktop.
It appears that you entered your credit card account information in the account area at the bottom of the credit card credit transaction. This results in a debit and a credit to the same account, which cancel out.
A credit card allows you to borrow money to make purchases or pay expenses. You can use QuickBooks Desktop to set up your credit card account and keep track of the charges and payments you've made.
I added this article on how to set up, use, and pay credit card accounts in QuickBooks Desktop.
I also suggest consulting your accountant, who can advise you on the best accounts and methods for your specific books.
Additionally, here are some article that can help you manage your banking transactions.

I do not understand the response!
Our CC account was linked through the Banking Feeds, and the transactions were pulled over through WebConnect by downloading the statements/transactions. In the transactions list, all of our charges appeared, as well as the payments we made. The payments show up as CC Credit.
So as of now, we have classified all the CC charges...but I still have (4) pending transactions that are CC Credits (these were the 4 payments we made on the card. The payments were made through the CC website, prior to us connecting the account to our QB file...which I believe is the reason they show up as CC Credits on the statement).
Should we record these CC Credit transactions or delete them?
