hello, i double checked all my bills and all are entered 2-4 weeks prior to my bill payment. i select pay bills and pay them that way. I still have unapplied bills showing up. none of the forums i have found seem to answer this directly. i've got almost $2000 hitting my profit and loss for january incorrectly and i cant seem to remove them
there are no duplicate bills listed. i have double checked and it almost seems as if random bills are showing up in the unapplied section. if i follow the help guidelines and create a new bill i assume i'll get double the expenses. im just about ready to figure out how to do an offsetting journal entry just to wipe this out
There can be a recurring bill that's causing the duplicates. We can further check by following these steps:
Go to the Gear icon and select Recurring transactions.
Look for a bill recurring transaction that has a similar vendor and amount as the unapplied bills.
If you want to delete or stop it from occurring, you can click the drop-down arrow under the ACTION column.
Click Delete or Pause.
However, if there's no recurring bill, you can use a journal entry to write off the unapplied bills. To help you with the accounts to be used, I'd suggest reaching out to an accountant. Feel free to run a report to get an overview of your vendor transactions: Common custom reports in QuickBooks Online.
Let me know if you have other questions. Take care and have a great day!
