How to eliminate unapplied cash bill payment expenses on my P&L? I create a bill to pay credit card liability for employee reimbursement and that is causing this problem.

Hi minassian5,

 

An unapplied payment will show up if one created bill payment prior to creating a bill, or if a payment was unapplied from a bill. In your case, you can pay the bill with the unapplied payment to remove it from your Profit and Loss report. I’m happy to show you how.

 

Open your bill and click on Make payment. Then, select the unapplied payment in the Credits section, as shown below. Please note that you can only do this if both transactions have the same payee. Please refer to this article for more details: What to do if you see unapplied cash bill payment expense on your profit and loss?

 

 

If you have more questions on about the payment, please go back to this thread so we can assist you further.

I do not see this option.  After I create a bill, when I make a Bill Payment, I only see Outstanding Transactions with the option to select the Bill to pay.  I do not see Credit Section below like you showed.

I do not see the same options.  When I create a Bill, I make a bill payment and I only see outstanding transactions to select.  I do not see a Credits Section.

We’re glad to have you back, minassian5.

 

No need for you to create a bill. All you have to do is to open the bill as mentioned by my colleague JessT.  You can actually go to the Search icon  and either enter the amount or the name of the payee to load the transactions. With that, you'll be able to find the bill there.

Then, you can continue following the steps provided by my colleague above. At this time, you'll be able to see the Credit section.
