Unapplied Cash Bill Payment Expense

I entered a bill in December of 2018, but didn't pay the bill until January of 2019.  When I run the P&L for 2019, it still shows the bill as open in the unapplied cash bill payment expense on the P&L.  When I run the P&L report for 01/01/18 to 04/12/19 it no longer shows up as unpaid in the unapplied cash bill payment expense.

Unapplied Cash Bill Payment Expense

Hello there, @KKollmann,

 

I've come to share some clarifications with you about the bill is under the Unapplied Cash Bill Expense account on the P&L report.

 

This account shows up when you've sent vendor payment checks but not yet applied to a vendor bill. This can also occur when a bill is create for a credit card account balance. If an incorrect amount is showing in this account, you'll need to apply the bill payment to a bill dated before the bill payment. 

 

You can also check this out for additional information: What to do if you see unapplied cash bill payment expense on your profit and loss.

 

I'd appreciate if you can provide more details on what you see after clicking the amount. I'll be waiting for your response. Thank you and have a wonderful day ahead.
