To enter a bill for an Item Receipt
- From the Home page, select Enter Bills against Inventory.
- On the Select Item Receipt window:
- From the Supplier drop-down, choose the correct supplier name.
- To keep the original inventory availability date, put a check mark on the box Use Item receipt date for the bill date.
- Select the Item Receipt that corresponds to your bill.Note: If there are multiple Item Receipts, convert each bill separately.
- Select OK. QuickBooks converts the Item Receipt into a bill.
- When you are ready to pay the bill, proceed to Pay bills.
