Older invoices did not show up this way. I have tried making new 'fake' invoices. They don't show up there. I have paid the 'fake' invoices and the 'fake' ones still don't show in the account register. How can an invoice show up essentially as a check (PAID/Debit) item in the register??
Solved! Go to Solution.
I just checked and all items are either service or non-inventory parts and point to an income account. I did notice that preferences had check auto-apply all payments? How Do I get rid of them?
For QB Desktop, edit your Items that you both buy and sell, incur and charge, and checkmark the box on the left. That Opens Two Sides. Now you link the left side to Expense and the right side to Income. When you save this change, QB offers to move existing data for you, separating income and expense.
When you purchase a Service, Noninventory, Inventory, or Other Charge type item, use the Item on the Items tab. When you sell it, that creates Income, because you told the system how to separate and track the data depending on where you listed that item. Please see my attachment.
