SOLVEDby QuickBooksQuickBooks Online606Updated 3 weeks ago

Learn how to link a bank deposit to an invoice in QuickBooks Online.

When you receive bank deposits from your customer, you need to link them to an invoice. This keeps your records accurate and helps avoid errors when it's time to reconcile your accounts.

Before you link a deposit to an invoice, here's a few things to check:

Find and edit the deposit

You can find the deposit entry in your bank register.

  1. Go to Bookkeeping or Accounting, then select Chart of accounts (Take me there).
  2. Select Chart of Accounts.
  3. Find the account you deposited the payment to, then select View register.
  4. Find and select the correct deposit. Then select Edit.
  5. In the Add funds to this deposit section, find the deposit.
  6. From the Received From ▼ dropdown, select the customer from where the deposit came from.
  7. From the Account ▼ dropdown, select Accounts Receivable.
  8. Select Save and close.

Apply the deposit entry as an invoice payment

Once you update the deposit, apply it as a credit to the invoice.

  1. Select + New.
  2. Select Receive payment.
  3. From the Customer ▼ dropdown, select the customer’s name. This displays all unpaid and outstanding credits for your customer.
  4. In the Payment date field, enter the day you received the payment.
  5. In the Outstanding Transactions section, select the invoice you need to mark as paid.
  6. In the Credits section, select the deposit.
  7. Select Save and close.
