We have contracted with company to collect water/sewer payments and send the money to us after expenses are taken out. How do we record gross amount collected as income?

We show expenses under expense line items; however, we need to capture the gross amount collected as income.  We only receive a check for the net amount, after expenses are taken out.

When someone else is handling your money, treat it like a bank account - one that you enter manually. Create a QB bank account for the service.

Record the gross payments in and out this account as they occur - just like any other bank account. 

When you receive the net proceeds it will appear as a deposit in your regular bank - and code it against the service account.
