Carrying over Accounts Payable from previous Fiscal Year

I am helping a company set up their books. They transitioned from SAGE to QB Desktop. Their fiscal year is July 1- June 30. They have APs coming into their new fiscal year, but the expenses were booked in the previous fiscal year. The expenses were paid yet as those expenses were put on a CC and the statement didn't come until the new fiscal year. If I create bills under each of the vendors owed and put the bill date for June 29, and then apply the CC charge on the statement, will it show those bills as new expenses? Meaning they'll be booked in 2020 and 2021 since the company transitioned software. Thanks T
