Unassigned Payments

I am receiving recurring payments from Intuit. They are not showing in my income. In tracking down the issue they are appearing as "Unassigned Payments." How do I assign them so that they will show in my P&L as income?

Hello, tlsisco.



You’ll just need to apply these payments to their corresponding invoices. You can find your open invoices by viewing your A/R report. Here’s how:

  1. Go to Reports from the top
  2. Select Customers & Receivables
  3. Choose A/R Aging report.  

Let us know if you have additional questions about QuickBooks.

Thank you SO MUCH fro your response.


This may sound like a dumb question, but do I need to create an invoice for each payment received if none exists in order to assign the payment?

Hi there, tlsisco.


Thanks for getting back to us. Allow me to help and provide some additional information about unassigned payments.


I appreciate you for following the steps provided my colleague. To answer your questions, you'll need to create an invoice in order to record and assign the payment. This will also keep track of your account receivable. 


To create an invoice, here's how: 

  1. At the top menu bar, click Customers.
  2. Select Create Invoices.
  3. From the Customer: Job drop-down, select a customer or customer job.
  4. Fill in the relevant information at the top of the form like the Date Invoice #, Bill to/Sold to and Terms.
  5. In the detail area, select the item/s.
  6. Select Save & Close.
