How do I set up reoccurring monthly expenses?

Welcome to the Community, @david-welch.


Setting up a recurring transaction in QuickBooks Online is fast and easy. Since you're going to create it for an expense, you can set up a recurring bill.


Here's how:


  1. If you already have an existing bill, you can locate and open it. Otherwise, create a new one by clicking the + New tab.
  2. Click Bill under Vendors.
  3. Enter the data that you want to include on a recurring basis such as vendor, account or item details, description, amount, and others.
  4. Go the bottom of the bill and click Make recurring.
  5. QuickBooks Online creates a copy of the bill and adds a "Recurring Bill" section so you can set the recurring bill's preferences.
  6. Enter a template name.
  7. Select Monthly and specify the interval and start date of the recurring transaction.
  8. From the End drop-down, specify if you want it to end that transaction after a number of occurrences, by a set end date, or to not end recurring.
  9. Save Template when done.
