Intercompany Transactions

I have 3 accounts in QBO. The general operating account transfers money to the other two accounts. I have matched all transfer transactions in QB - matching the spent account to the received account. Is it necessary for me to create intercompany transactions/ journal entries like due to/due from since I already matched them and it balances to the bank? I'm so lost and need to get this done so I can reconcile the banks in QB. If I need to create intercompany transactions or journal entries in QB, what do I do ? Please help!!!

Intercompany Transactions

Thanks for providing us in-depth details of your concern, Mgillia2.


For the three accounts you have in QuickBooks Online (QBO), we only need to reconcile the parent account. This is because all the transactions in the subaccounts are rolled up into it.


You can check out this article for the steps and details: How to reconcile accounts.


For more details about setting up multiple subaccounts, just refer to this article: About bank or credit card subaccount setup


To create intercompany transactions or journal entries, I'd suggest consulting your accountant about this one. They'll provide you detailed information on how to best handle this one in your account. They'll also guide you on what posting account you need to use when creating a journal entry.


I've got a link where you can find articles about managing your bank transactions:

Intercompany Transactions

Transfers between bank accounts for one company are not "Intercompany" transactions.

They are just transfers between bank accounts.

Intercompany is when a company has multiple companies that are subsidiaries under a parent company.
