Vendor Bills and How it shows on Balance Sheet.

I entered a vendor bill and offset it to the proper expense. The bill has not been paid if I look at my balance sheet the amount is showing up under Accounts Payable - Flooring account # 20200. I would like it to show up under Accounts Payable account #20100. How do I change the accounts payable account in quckbooks online? Thanks

QBO will only post bills to the default A/P account, set up at the beginning  -  even if you change its name, which it appears you may have. Your choices are to change the name of this A/P account (merge if desired) or to enter a journal entry to move the bill from one AP to another.  There is no option to select which to use when bills are entered (although the feature has been requested numerous times)

How do I tell what default AP I picked? Can I change the default?

Hey there, @CK18

 

Thanks for reaching out. I'll be happy to provide some insight into the accounts payable account.

 

As of right now, QuickBooks Online only uses one accounts payable account when entering a bill. There's not an option to pick a specific accounts payable account. If you'd like, I can submit feedback to our product developers team so this can be considered in a future update. 

 

In the meantime, check out: Manage default and special accounts in your chart of accounts for more details. 

 

Please let me know if there is anything else that I can assist you with. I'll be around if you need me. Have a good one!
