Connect with and learn from others in the QuickBooks Community.
I've just signed up to Quickbooks and my business is a little unusual in that it is an investment company.
The company receives dividend and interest income from investments. Does anyone have any pointers in how best to set up and manage this?
Any help is gratefully received.
Hi and welcome to the community. I am sure as investments company your know-how of accounting and bookkeeping will be quite good.
This may not be a complete solution for your query but it will be helpful -
Also I think Rustler and EmilyMockett could give us some of their valuable insights
Many thanks for your message and link. I will have a read. Have a good day.
Interesting link, but it is wrong.
interest and dividends received are income, some folks post them all to the same named income account, others create two named income accounts, either way works.
You can make a service item named for each, and select the income account on the item screen. Use that item on a sales receipt for the investment broker as a customer, then deposit the funds
go to make deposits, select the income account as the source (from) account for the deposit and enter the amount.
Using an item and sales receipt is better in that it allows you do good reporting
