Record incentive received from a remittance


We're working to provide services through overseas clients who make payments through Worldremit or something that deposits the fund to our bank in local currency. Recently, the bank is paying incentives the amount varies depending on the amount of payment. 


How do I record the incentive I receive along with the payment? 


I created a misc income account under "Other Miscellaneous Income" type, but whenever I go to "New > Deposit", the misc income account doesn't show in the list. 


Thanks in advance.

Hi there, @azizultex.


I'm here to share insights on how to record incentives received from payments in QuickBooks Online.


The Bank Deposit in QuickBooks Online is the final step to ensure the money you receive from payments is accurately recorded. Also, this feature where you will record the deposit.

To ensure that the Miscellaneous Income Account will show up. We can use the Add funds to this deposit. Here's how:


  1. Go to the  + New icon in the left pane then select Bank deposit.
  2. Choose the Bank Account.
  3. Fill in the necessary information.
  4. In the ACCOUNT field click the drop-down button.
  5. Locate the Miscellaneous Income account.
  6. Hit Save and new or Save and close.


I provide screenshot for reference.
