How do you send a 'paid' invoice or receipt of payment when you are paid before the invoice is created?
I'm here to assist you regarding invoices, mikeallenonair.
We're unable to create a receipt if there's no corresponding invoice. What I can suggest is to create an invoice and enter a dummy email address so you can save it. Once you mark it as paid, you can change the email address and send it to your client already.
Go to the Invoices tab and select Create invoice.
Enter the details required and enter a dummy email address. Click Send invoice.
From the Invoices tab, locate the invoice you created and click on Mark as paid.
On the pop-up, click Send. In the Recipient's email address field, enter the correct email address.
I'll forward a suggestion to our developers to have this kind of feature in QuickBooks Self-Employed. I've added this links to get more details about invoicing:
