How to create 2 accounts receivable accounts in G/L in desk top

I can help you with that, exumaacctgsoluti.


With QuickBooks Desktop, you can create multiple A/R accounts to efficiently track, group, and sub-total your open receivables. I'll show you how to do it:


  1. Launch QuickBooks.
  2. Select Lists from the top menu bar, then choose Chart of Accounts.
  3. Click Account at the bottom of the list, then select New.
  4. From the Other Account Types menu, choose the Accounts Receivable option and click Continue.
  5. Enter the name of the account in the Account Name field.
  6. Click Save & close to exit and save the account or Save & new to create a new one.

Once done, you can now assign your invoices to those A/R accounts by selecting the Account drop-down menu. This way, they'll reflect in your General Ledger report.


I also recommend reading this article to help you organize your cash flow, and track sales, receivables, and profitability more accurately: Accounts Receivable workflows in QuickBooks Desktop. Please take note that this is a US-based article since there's no Desktop version in ROW.


Keep me posted if you have any other concerns or further questions about reports and accounting. I'll always have your back.
