Important: make a back up your business data file before continuing!

  • Improve your Sales Tax preference to Due on receipt of payment, which can be the cash basis option, before running the bucks Basis Balance Sheet.
  • Link transactions when you look at the Receive Payment window (A/R) –  Basically, you'll need Apply the payments.. also ensure that the customer payment is date on or following the applied invoice date to avoid these problems, you may either replace the payment date or the invoice date.  Note that QuickBooks applies income to Profit & Loss in cash basis in the payment date (if dated AFTER invoice date) or from the invoice date (if payment is dated BEFORE the invoice date)
  • Link transactions in the settle payments window (A/P) –  In other words, apply the payments to your bills…  observe that QuickBooks applies expense to Profit & Loss in cash basis on the applied payment date (if dated AFTER Bill date) or on the Bill date (if payment is dated ahead of the Bill date)
  • Make sure your service, non-inventory part, and other charge items are linked to income and expense accounts:
  • Choose Lists > Item List.
  • Try to find any balance sheet accounts (assets, liability, or equity) listed in the Account column.
  • Assure any items pointing to asset accounts are set up correctly. Some items (e.g., sales tax, retainers) should point to asset accounts.
  • Temporarily delete the transactions you identify as problems:
  • Memorize the open transactions and then delete them.
  • Print your money basis reports.
  • Reenter the transactions through the memorized transactions list.
  • Edit your journal entries (JEs):
  1. Separate the A/P and A/R portions of journal entries that combine several transactions involving B/S accounts, into separate JEs.
  2. Move the A/R portion into the first line (source) associated with JE. Those JEs which can be offset to an income or expense account will drop off the report. The JEs which can be offset to a balance sheet account will stay in the report.
