I have been trying to get my restaurant based sales inputted into my quickbooks. I have tried doing several different daily sales receipts and I can never get the deposits to match. I have talked to several people including several cpa's who have not been able to help me. Quickbooks employees have been even less help. I am looking for someone who has actually used Future POS and successful used the Quickbooks G/L Integration software included with Furture POS. I just want to make sure I am setting up the accounts correctly, and no one has been able to give me solid examples. Please respond with helpful information, I am really getting tired of people posting help links and guides that offer me no real answers. Thank you ahead of time.

I have lots of problems with my daily sales receipt. Here are my starting points. I have adjusted cash, which is the total cash collected by a server minus the credit card tips she was given. The adjusted cash is then submitted to the office. If the adjusted cash is negative, the server then goes to the bar (our only active cash register) and the bartender issues a tip out(payout) of the remaining credit card tips given to the server. Taxes... we have two sets of taxes that we must pay. Va State sales tax 5.3% and then a local meals tax of 5%. I did use a tax group to account for that. Retail items (shirts, mugs, glasses, etc.) are the only items on menu that doesn't have the additional 5% attributed to it. We used to use to have house tips. I broke down and purchased a book titled "Restaurant Accounting with Quickbooks" published through the Sleeter Group. I thought it would set me in the correct direction but I fear not. I set up a new company file using a method of zeroing the Z-tap, but I am not 100% sure I am looking at the right thing.. I really want to be able to track sales per server, however once I put in all the server reports my deposits screen doesn't match my deposits from the credit card processing company. I am completely lost and the only phone number of someone who could help me, has stopped responding to me. I hope you all can help. I have over a month's worth of sales I need to get into my company file correctly.. Thank you ahead of time.
