Hello! I am doing client clean up where they had not fully set everything up with Square when they started using it back in March. The square payments were transferred into Quickbooks, which of course put them in Uncategorized Assets.
My question is this, is it better to do a journal entry removing it from the uncategorized to square income, or would it better to run it through clearing accounts into checking? These are old charges from the first of the year.
In cases like this, you can continue creating a journal entry, especially when your books are already closed. However, before we proceed with the steps, I highly suggest consulting your accountant or accounting professional for guidance on which account receives the debit and credit side of the transaction.
To create a journal entry in QuickBooks Online (QBO), here's how:
Click the + New button in the left navigation menu.
Select Journal entry.
Fill out the fields to create your journal entry.
Pick Save and new or Save and close.
