Recording payment

We have started to rent booth spaces to vendors within our shop. Our vendors are invoiced monthly and their rent is generally paid with the month's sales. How do we record a payment to the invoice from those sales without affecting the taxable sales total?


I have tried entering in a credit to the invoice, but it reduces the taxable sales, which we need to remain the same for income and sales tax reporting. 


For example, rent is $100, they have $70 in sales, therefore their remaining invoice balance would need to become $30. BUT that $70 of sales still needs to remain a taxable sale.

Recording payment

Hi there, @Jjhog2019.


Glad to have you here in the Community. Allow me to share some insights about recording a taxable payment in QuickBooks Desktop.


Are you referring to adding amount to the partial payment of your invoice? If so, this option isn't possible. When recording a taxable payment in QuickBooks Desktop the entire invoice amount will have it's entire taxable amount. If you added a partial payment, the taxable amount will be attached to the remaining balance. For example the invoice amount is 100, it has a sales tax for 20. When you added a partial payment for 70 the remaining balance will be 50 since its counted together the tax amount. 


However, I'd encourage you sharing your suggestion to our developers. Doing this helps them understand where we can improve and what features should be added so we can better serve you.
