Import bills from Excel

I am trying to follow this guide for importing bills into QBO.

I cannot get past the first line because nowhere is there an option for "Import Bills" as described.

I’m happy to see you today, RyanErickson.

Welcome to the Online Community. I’m here to clarify why you’re unable to see the Import Bills option.

This feature is currently available in Canada and the UK versions. If you’re in the US, there’s not a direct way of importing bills into QuickBooks.


You may search for third-party applications that integrate well and provide seamless importing of bills. Though, we're unable to provide recommendations which one to use.


I suggest you visit the QuickBooks Apps site and look for an app that meets your business needs. You can also do this inside your company, just go to Apps on the left panel and then enter a keyword in the search field. 


For more insights check out the Apps that work with QuickBooks article. 

This should point you in the right direction. If you have any questions or concerns about QBO, please let me know by leaving a comment below. I’ll be right here to answer them.

I'm aware of 3rd party apps that perform this.

But why is there a guide describing something that apparently doesn't exist?

Thanks for getting back, @RyanErickson.


Allow me to step in for a moment and help share some insights about the guide for importing bills into QBO.


The article guide you're referring to is only applicable to Canada and UK versions. As what my colleague @Rasa-LilaM mentioned on this thread, this isn't available yet using the US version of QuickBooks.


If you need some references in the future, please feel free to access our site: Help articles for QuickBooks Online. To view the articles for QuickBooks US, make sure to change the flag beside the Go to on the upper right corner.


Keep me posted if you need anything else. I'm also here to help.

How disappointing! When will this feature be coming to the US instance of QuickBooks? ...certainly the framework is there to implement it.

  2. Under Vendors, select Bill.
  3. Select a vendor from the drop-down list.
  4. Complete other fields on this page.
  5. Use the Account details or Item details sections to enter bill information.
