Is there really no way to set up a distribution code for a vendor online? Do you know if they plan on fixing this? My business is wasting precious hours on this flaw.

Hello dryacucci,

 

Currently, QuickBooks Online can only set distribution codes for customer transactions. Instead, you'll need to calculate and enter the amounts manually for the vendor transactions.

  1. Click the + New button and select Expense, Check, or Bill.
  2. Enter the Payee, the Payment or Bank account, and the Payment date.
  3. Go to the Category details section and calculate the total amount with the distribution rate.
  4. Select the account for the distribution code in the CATEGORY column. 
  5. Enter the calculated amount in the AMOUNT column.
  6. Enter other necessary details and click Save and new.

I'd also recommend reaching out to your accountant to see if they have another way to do this.

 

We'll be right here if you need anything else.
