How Can I Record Sales Commission Upon Invoice Payment?

Hello,

 

I owe my salespeople commission when we get paid. Right now we record the expense and liability manually. Is there a way to automatically create the expense and commission liability upon invoice payment? I know this is possible upon invoice creation. Thank you!

Good to see you here in the Community, FabianaT.

Let me help you record the sales commission when creating an invoice in QuickBooks Online.

 

You can create a service item for the sales commission and add the item when creating an invoice in QuickBooks Online.

 

To create a service item:

  1. Select the Gear icon on the Toolbar, then choose Products and Services.
  2. In the Products and Services window, select New.
  3. Select the product or service type.
  4. Enter the new product or service information then select Save and close. (Note: When adding non-inventory items and services, check the I sell this product/service to my customers box in order to make these items and services show up when creating invoices and bills.)

You may also add an item to your Products and Services list while inside an invoice:

 

  1. Select the Plus icon (+) on the Toolbar, then select Invoice.
  2. While inside the invoice, select a row under the Product/Service column.
  3. Select the drop-down box, then choose to  Add new.
  4. Select the product or service type.
  5. Enter the new product or service information then select Save and close. (Note: When adding non-inventory items and services, check the I sell this product/service to my customers box in order to make these items and services show up when creating invoices and bills.)
