Vendors in a wrong Account Payable

Each time I create a Vendor it goes to a wrong Account Payable, only one Vendor is affecting the correct account and I created it the same way as the others . Can I change the account of each vendor? Why is this happening? I have multiple Accounts Payable, but just one for vendors

 

Please I will appreciate your help!!

Re: Vendors in a wrong Account Payable

Hello there, @lyhadi.

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community. I can share some information about the Accounts Payable.

 

QuickBooks automatically has an Accounts Payable (A/P) and this is not set up per vendor. To resolve your accounting problem, we need to make sure that there's only one A/P account. To do that, you can merge them:

 

Just a gentle reminder, the merging process is permanent and cannot be undone.

  1. Click Accounting.
  2. Enter Accounts Payable on the search field.
  3. Click the drop-down icon under the Action column.
  4. Select Edit.
  5. Change the Name to Accounts Payable (A/P).
  6. Click Save and Close.
  7. Click Yes on the Confirmation window.

 

For more details about merging accounts, please refer to this article: How to merge accounts.

 

Let me know if there's anything else you need or if you have follow up questions. I'm still here to help you more. Have a good one!

Hi there, tamaracastro.

 

Thanks for getting back to us. Allow me to address your concern, so let me get this straightened out. 

 

My colleague HoneyLynn_G provided you the exact information, there's only one A/P account in QuickBooks Online (QBO). Currently, there's isn't an option to separate multiple A/P accounts. I can see how this feature would be beneficial to your business, I recommend sending feedback directly to our Product Developers for future update.

 

Here's how you can send feedback: 

  1. Click the Gear Icon.
  2. Select Feedback.
  3. Click Next and choose Feedback under Category option.
  4. Select Save.

Please know that you're always welcome to post if you have any other questions. Have a good day ahead.
