To start off: I am new to bookkeeping and am finding out the lingo I use causes problems with actual bookkeepers and accountants, so if I use the wrong terminology, my apologies in advance.
The issue I'm having with QB Pro (online?) is setting up a credit card account. I have a utility bill that we have set up on auto pay with the company card. Historically, the company has tracked it only when the credit card statement comes through. The $ amount is filed under "Utility" for the expense account, and no big deal. However, I want us to get in the habit of actually tracking the original bill for the company, and then paying it by credit card within QB.
All the instructions I've found to set up a credit card account are simple, except that I do not have "Credit Card" as an option when setting up a new account. In fact, there are NO liability accounts from which to choose. Am I doing something wrong? I follow the instructions to a T until this point, and there is nothing to choose from. See attached screenshot.
