Deposits made on an invoice.

I would like to change the date of a deposit or down payment made on an invoice to match the actual date we received the payment.  It defaults to the date the of the invoice.

Deposits made on an invoice.

Hi @lmoran,

 

Thanks for the question.  Regarding deposits, the deposit is part of the invoice transaction; there is no separating it It is always going to default to the date of the invoice.  If the deposit/down payment is on a different date from the invoice, and should be recorded as such, it should be recorded in QuickBooks as a payment, not as a deposit.

 

thanks,

Lucas

OK, but  deposit is always ahead of an actual payment, so this really makes no sense.  Why even have a deposit line if the date can't be changed?

Good morning, @lmoran,

 

I definitely understand where you are coming from. Let me see if I can clarify. The deposit field on an invoice is to record that the customer provided a deposit when the order/invoice was created. Anything other than this, should be recorded in QBO as a payment.

 

Thanks,

Lucas
