Good to have you back, usher.

 

In the Pay Bills window, there isn't an option to show both the bill date and the due date. However, you can pull up the Transactions History of your bill instead. This will show your Bill information. Please follow these steps:

  1. Locate the bill.
  2. Click the Reports tab at the top.
  3. Select Transactions History.

Please see attached screenshot for your reference:

 

Also, you can pull up the Transaction List by Vendor report and customize it. I'll show you how:

  1.  Go to the Reports menu, select Vendors & Payables, then choose Transaction List by Vendor.

    2. Click Customize Report

    3. In the Columns section, search for Due Date to add it on the report.

    4. Click OK

 

Take note that in the report, you'll see all the transaction type. However, you can filter it to only show the bill by exporting it to Excel.

Keep me posted with the results. I want to make sure this is taken care of.

Hello, @usher.

 

Thanks for visiting the Community.

 

The due date appears so you'd know how much time is left for you to pay the bills. At this time, there isn't an option to hide the due date and only show the bill date.

 

I can see how this feature to include the bill date when paying bills in QuickBooks Desktop. Rest assured, I'm taking note of this suggestion for future enhancement.

 

For you to keep updated on our latest updates and features,  you can check your QuickBooks account. 

 

Here's how:

 

1. Go to Help menu.

2. Click the New Features.

3. Select either New Features Tour or What's New tab.

Yes you can. What i do is i set up a new TERM. I name it Cash Term and set Net Due in 0 Days. Every time i enter a bill, i will choose Cash Term. In this way, it will mirror the Invoice date as Due date in the system, making it easier for me if i want to pay by certain date.

 

I have attached a sample picture. Hope this helps.
