How does quick books handle advanced revenue in cash flow statement

Let me provide some details about the cash flow statement in QuickBooks Online, @lenw1.


In the Journal entry posting, both income and liability can't be increased. To create a journal entry, here's how: 

  1. Sign in to your QuickBooks Online account.
  2. Go to the + New button
  3. Select Journal entry.
  4. Fill out the fields to create your journal entry.
  5. Click Save and new or Save and close.

I also recommend following the advice of your accountant.
