Hi Kristine, 

 

I too am trying to enter a bill (enter it as a payment due and not an actual payment) into QBO and when I click the gear icon I do not see VENDORS.

 

Can you please assist?

Thanks

Quickbooks online how do I enter bills?

Hi,

 

When entering multiple bills, i was always able to select 'save and new' and this would automatically take me to the 'choose supplier' tab without having to click on it.

However, recently that has stopped and i always have to go with the mouse and click again on the 'choose supplier' tab.

Can you help?

Welcome to the Community, HR1.

 

I’m here to share some information. I tried creating multiple bills on two of my sample company files and verified that I have to click on the choose supplier tab each time to select a vendor for that transaction. 

 

If the function was available for you before, I’d recommend sending your insight to our Product Developers for this to be added permanently to QuickBooks Online.  Simply go to the Gear icon at the top and select Feedback

 

QBO is a program that’s constantly evolving based largely on request provided by users. You may also send your suggestion by going to the following link: QuickBooks Online Feature Requests. I’ll make sure to do the same thing on my end as well.

 

That’s it. We look forward to hearing from you soon. Post again in the Community if you need anything else. I’ll be here to help. Take care!

Hello MMalin1215,

 

Based on GraceC's screenshots, she activated the billable function and its related features. This is only available in QuickBooks Online Plus. 

  1. Click the Gear icon in the upper-right corner and select Account and Settings.
  2. Select the Expenses tab and go to the Bills and expenses section.
  3. Mark the Make expenses and items billable box.
  4. Mark the following boxes if necessary:
       • Markup with a default rate
       • Track billable expenses and items as income
       • Charge sales tax
  5. Click Save and Done.

If you're using Simple Start or Essentials, you'll need to upgrade to Plus to be able to use the feature.

 

We'll get back to you need additional help. Have a great day!
