Yes, you can record a refund in your QuickBooks Online (QBO) account, @officecuriouscre.


You can use the Expense feature in QBO to record a refund to your customer. Let me guide you how.

  1. Click the + New button.
  2. Select Expense, Add expense or Check.
  3. Choose the customer you'll issue the refund from the Payee drop-down arrow.
  4. Enter the needed details and click Save and close once done.
