Good day, I am looking for the OCR receipt capture feature but cannot find it on my QBO. Could you please let me know how this can be activated?

Hello there, @NIM06.

 

Let me share some information on how you can keep track of your receipts.

 

With QuickBooks receipt capture feature, you can now snap and store receipts digitally using the Optical Character Recognition (OCR). It extracts the necessary data, such as the vendor and the amount, to create a transaction record allocating the purchase to one of your categories for business expenses. There are three ways to add your receipts:

  1. Scan the receipts directly through the QuickBooks mobile app – more on that below.
  2. Drag and drop the image, or upload it into QuickBooks Online.
  3. Forward the receipt by email.

Currently, this feature is only available in US, UK, AU and CA version. In the meantime, you'd want to look for a third-party application that you can link with QuickBooks and support the feature you want.

 

Although, if you're unable to link the app, you can enter these receipts manually by creating an expense or a cheque. Then, attach the receipt on it. Here's how:

  1. Click the New or Plus sign (+) button.
  2. Select Expense or Cheque.
  3. Fill in the necessary fields, then click Save and close

You can read through this article to learn more about managing attachments: Attachments in QuickBooks Online.

 

Feel free to keep us posted if you have other questions or concerns. I'm always here to lend a hand.

You may need an additional app to do so.
