Billable Expenses of $0.00 Saved

I am not sure why the Billable expenses feature is not working appropriately since early this week as 8/10/20. I have been used this feature for over 3 year, it has not issues at all. Here is my problem:

It shows $0.00 in Billable Expense entries after I pick the account and save (Photo 1). Additionally, it doesn't save the account I select (Photo 2). When I applied this to the customer invoices, it can't reflect the amount to deduct the invoices.  1.PNG2.PNG

You may be experiencing a browser-related issue, rickchenbird.


There are instances that an issue like this can be resolved by running some troubleshooting steps. 


To start with, let's try saving the billable expense on a private window. This is where we can identify any browser-related issue. You can use these keyboard shortcuts to open one:


  • Google Chrome: Ctrl Shift N
  • Mozilla Firefox: Ctrl Shift P
  • Microsoft Edge: Ctrl Shift P
  • Safari: Command Shift N


If you're able to save one, we can go back to a regular browser and clear its cache. A piled cache can also be the reason for some unexpected issues on the opened pages like QuickBooks.


You can also switch to a different supported browser like Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or Safari.


I've also added this article for more information when entering a billable expense: Enter billable expense.


Let me know if you still need my help. Stay safe!

Billable Expenses of $0.00 Saved

Hi Adrian, I follow your suggestion to try different browsers, but the issue isn't resolve. I don't think it is  browser-related issue. 


I think I found the real problem after I test several times. When I save the entry and select billable. It does save the amount in Billable Expense, but it has a small difference in the past. It used to show the account in the page of Billable Expense (Red Arrow in screenshot), but it doesn't show now. (Please see my screenshot). I find out the account is default to an Income account now, but when I try to change to another account as a liability account, it won't save as $0.00 as I mentioned in my previous inquiry. The problem is the system doesn't allow me to choose a Liability account, but I can do it in the past.
