Receipt Capture for Asset Categories



When using the QB App and receipt capture, the category drop down only allows expense accounts and not Asset accounts. Is there a setting I can change to allow asset categories?

Receipt Capture for Asset Categories

It's good to see you here, @EMCPhx. Let me provide some information about receipt capture in QuickBooks mobile app.


I can see how relevant it is to have an asset account as an option in the dropdown menu when using the receipt capture feature. Currently, you can only select an expense account. 


You may also review this link to learn more about uploading receipts and bills to QuickBooks Online. It also includes some ideas on how to review, add, or match receipts and bills.


In addition to that, I've attached an article that you can utilize for future use: Email your expense receipts and bills to QuickBooks Online.


Fill me in if you have further questions about uploading receipts in QuickBooks. I'll be happy to help you. Keep safe and have a pleasant day!
