Unapplied Bill payment check to bill

My "Unpaid Bill" report is showing a "Bill payment (check)" and a "bill" for the same vendor. My QBO account is set for auto bank downloads and when reviewing the transactions in the "For Review" tab it shows a check I wrote that cleared the bank and it shows 2 records found as possible matches. One record is the "bill payment check" and the other is the "bill" with an open balance. How do I apply this bill payment check to the open bill? If I click on the record "Bill payment check" it takes me to a screen that shows the amount paid and on the right side of the screen it gives me an option to "add to bill" payment. If I do this will it apply the credits on the "bill payment check" to the open bill which will result in the bill being paid? Then I can match the check that has cleared with the "bill payment check"?

Re: Unapplied Bill payment check to bill

Thanks for sharing the complete details of your concern, ST11.

 

When a bill payment check isn't applied to a bill, it'll show as a credit to the vendor.

 

You're right. Simply click on the Record Bill Payment Check option to apply it to the open bill. This should let you match the transactions.

 

I'll show you how:

  1. First, go to Banking on the left pane.
  2. Click the For Review tab.
  3. Hit the transaction and make sure to click Match.

I'd appreciate if you can update me on how it goes. I'll be here if there's anything else you need. Have a good one.
