Paying Bills

I entered the bills. Printed the checks but they are still showing as open in my list of bills to pay. How do I make them go away since I have already paid them?

Paying Bills

Hello tinawoo!

 

Allow me to help you in fixing the issue of the bill.

 

QuickBooks Desktop closes the bill once you paid it. It's possible that you created a check instead of using the Pay bills feature. Creating a check remains the bill open and unpaid. If that what's causing this error, we need to link the check to the bill.

 

Follow these steps:

  1. Open the check you created and change the Expense account to Accounts Payable.
  2. Tap Save and close.
  3. From the Vendors menu, select Pay Bills. Then, select the bill where you need to link the check.
  4. Select Set Credits, then go to the Credits tab.
  5. Put a check on the credit. Tap Done, then select Pay Selected Bills.

 

Another way to fix this is by deleting the check. Open the check and click the Delete button. Once done, simply use the Pay bills feature that you can select from the Vendors menu.

 

You'll want to browse these articles. These will discuss more on how to settle your bills in QuickBooks Desktop:

 

Also, visit our Expenses and vendors page for more references in managing your expenses, bills, checks, and suppliers.

Gracias por unirse a este hilo y hacérnoslo saber, Ejca1.

 

Me gustaría ayudar y asegurarme de que pague sus facturas en QuickBooks Desktop.

 

Hay dos formas diferentes de pagar sus facturas. Si tiene el pago de facturas en línea, puede pagarlo a través de la ventana de pago de facturas. Puede seguir los pasos a continuación.

 

Como esto:

 

  1. Vaya al menú Proveedores, seleccione Pagar facturas.

  2. Seleccione la (s) factura (s) a pagar y luego establezca cualquier descuento o crédito que desee aplicar.

  3. En el menú desplegable Cuenta, elija la cuenta corriente con el servicio de pago de proveedores en línea.

  4. En el menú desplegable Método, elija Pago bancario en línea.

  5. Puede agregar el número de referencia o cambiar la fecha si es necesario.

  6. Haga clic en Pagar facturas seleccionadas para registrar el pago de la factura. Se abre la ventana Resumen de pago para mostrar las facturas que se registraron correctamente.

 

Además, para obtener más información sobre el flujo de trabajo de Cuentas por pagar en QuickBooks Desktop, puede consultar este artículo: Flujos de trabajo de Cuentas por pagar en QuickBooks Desktop.


Avíseme si aún tiene otras preguntas sobre facturas y pagos. Estaré en contacto. ¡Que tengas una buena semana!

Thank you for joining this thread and letting us know, Ejca1.

 

I'd like to help out and make sure you pay your bills in QuickBooks Desktop.
 

There are two different ways to pay your bills. If you have online bill pay, you can pay it through the pay bills window. You can follow the steps below.

 

Like this:

 

  1. Go to the Vendors menu, select Pay Bills.
  2. Select the bill(s) to pay, and then set any discount or credits that you want to apply.
  3. From the Account dropdown, choose the checking account with the online vendor payment service.
  4. From the Method dropdown, choose Online Bank Pmt.
  5. You can add the reference number or change the date if needed.
  6. Click Pay Selected Bills to record the bill payment. The Payment Summary window opens to show the bills that were successfully recorded.

 

Also, to learn more about the Accounts Payable workflow in QuickBooks Desktop, you're free to check out this article: Accounts Payable workflows in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

Let me know if you still have other questions about bills and payment. I'll be in touch. Have a nice week!
