Missing class column when entering and paying a bill

Hello @missymarykay55,

 

You can turn it on and make sure to assign a class to your items when entering and paying your bills. Let me show you how.

  1. Go to Edit.
  2. Select Preferences.
  3. Click Accounting.
  4. Under Company Preferences, select Use class tracking for transactions.
  5. Put a checkmark on the Assign classes to selection.
  6. Select Items.
  7. Click OK.

In addition, here's an article you can read to learn more about how you can utilize class tracking: How to track account balances using different classes in QuickBooks Desktop?

 

Lastly, I've also included this reference for a compilation of articles you can use while working with us: Expenses and Vendors for QuickBooks Desktop.

 

If you have any other questions, please let me know in the comments below. I'll be here to lend a hand.

Missing class column when entering and paying a bill

Since you helped me so much with my last problem hopefully you can help me with my next one.  I have on my chart of account Home Depot Gift Card.  The company I work for uses Home Depot a lot for maintenance items and they get gift cards.  Instead of entering in a new gift card all the time I have entered it into my chart of accounts just once.  I just want to add an amount each time he gets a new card to the one I have on my accounts.  I know to debit the gift card but what do I credit when I add more money to the gift card?

Good afternoon, @missymarykay55

 

Thanks for reaching back out to the Community. Allow me to provide you with some information about what to credit when adding more money to a gift card. 

 

I can see how beneficial a direct answer to this question would be for you. However, consulting your accountant to be sure would be the best route. They'll be able to give you the best accounting advice for your business. If you don't have one, no worries. You can find one near you using this link.  

 

Let me know what the accountant says when contacting them. I want to ensure that you're taken care of. Should you need any more details, don't hesitate to ask. Wishing you and your business continued success!

he doesn't have an accountant at this time so I put the credit to ask my accountant so when he does his taxes the accountant may know where to put it.  I was just trying to make things easier by crediting an account but obviously you don't know either.
