    Quick Books - Customer Journals

    I am hoping someone here can assist.

    I personally have never worked with QB (Pastel fan all the way) - one of my clients uses QB and needs to process customer journals (writing off bad debts/discounts, etc) - I had a look and found the section for general journals but nothing that remotely resembles a customer journal.

    Could any of you QB fundi's point me in the right direction please.

    You do a general journal. The trick is to add the client account in the Name column for the Accounts receivable credit entry line.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

  3. Thanks given for this post:

    Be careful - work too much with QB and you might get converted

    lol!! doubt it - the ease of which one can randomly change entries makes the accountant in me sceptical.

    Two tips on that:
    • Audit trail (think of it as a honey trap)
    • Closing date - the ability to lock down all entries prior to a certain date.


    ps - my auditors used to feel the same way. They have been converted.

    The concerns really arise from not being aware of all the features of the product.

    Hi Martin,

    It was a bundled 5 user licence upgrade special at the time for about R2 500.00 (from memory), a deal I haven't seen since (or anything even remotely close).

    I'm planning to upgrade to a later version and it seems I'm in for about R4 000.00 per licence for the Premier edition with no sign of a bulk deal in sight. (Current versions of Pro don't seem to have all the features that Pro had in 2003.)
