Why is my credit card beginning balance negative

You will first need to check the account TYPE in the Chart of Accounts.
If you’ve manually entered the credit card balance as a positive number when, creating a new account in the Chart of Accounts, on reconciling screen, your beginning balance should also be positive, not negative.

You will need to check the TYPE on your chart of accounts. For credit card account, the CATEGORY TYPE should also be “Credit Card” not Bank or something else. If it’s not setup as credit card type, you will need to edit from pull-down arrow next to view register in the chart of accounts.

How to track donated inventory stock items by your business in QuickBooks

These are the specific steps you can follow in QuickBooks Online (available in plus plan only) if you are donating or giving away tracked quantity on hand inventory items.

Create ZERO Value Sales Receipt for Inventory Items:
1. From the Home Page screen > click Create (+) Sign (top middle bar) > Customers > Sales Receipt and create a Sales Receipt for the inventory item.
2. Choose a customer (name of donating company). Add new if needed.
3. Select Item Donation as your Payment Method. Add new if needed. Optional.
4. For “Deposit to” field, select Add new and create bank category type account. Name it clearing account. (This will create just a zero dollar transaction. You would not have any actual banking transactions in this bank register).

To record this:
1. Click Create (+) sign > Other > Journal Entry.
2. In the Account section, choose the expense account used to track charitable contributions (for example, Charitable Donations Expense).

5. The cost of the product/service entered in the field above will populate the Credit field.
6. Click Save.
