What does checking Billable box do in QuickBooks Online

The billable feature is available only in QuickBooks Online with Plus plan.
When you select “Billable” Expense checkbox field, you must also select a Customer/Project field each split line that is billable. If you don’t select Customer/Project field, you will get an error message. You can’t the save the transaction. (If you’ve Markup percentage turned on from the settings, you can also choose that field to alter that billable invoice amount).

By selecting “Billable” checkbox and Customer/Project field, it will do two things:
1) It will create an expense from that vendor.

In other words, you will see all open expenses ready to be included when you are ready to create invoices. Just create an invoice, select customer and right side Add to Invoice panel will open. You can choose “Add all” or each billable item.


To turn on the Use Billable Expenses preference:

Choose the Gear icon at the upper right corner > Your Company / Account and Settings.
Choose Expenses from the menu on the left.
In the Bills and expenses section, check on the Edit icon.

Bank Deposit Customers Expense Expenses Invoice Reports

Why mark it billable to a customer and select “track returns for customers” box on a bank deposit

This has to do with reflecting accurate direct expenses related to customers on Income by Customer Report.

If you are depositing a vendor/supplier refund for an expense that was previously Billed to a customer, select “Track returns for customers” box and choose that same customer on the deposit and mark it Billable.

For example, if you buy a material for a customer’s job, you would bill the expense to the customer. But if the customer later returns the material to you and you return it to the vendor/supplier for a refund that you are depositing, you need to mark the deposit billable to that same customer and also select “Track returns for customers” box. Otherwise, it will show as customer billed for the material expense, and the vendor credit will not appear on Income by Customer Summary Report.


 





 
Here is an example of what happens when $1,000 billable purchase returned to the supplier for a refund and deposited that money in the bank. The goal is to show zero expense related to that customer.

1099 Bank Deposit Chart of Accounts Check Expense Expenses Vendor Vendors

Owner paid a subcontractor with his own money. How to make sure Vendor shows up on 1099 and still able to write the reimburse check to the Company Owner

First, you will need to create a new dummy bank account. You will also need a due to the owner as a liability type account to use it for later reimbursement.

Step#1 Use bank deposit form (create + sign > other > bank deposit) to record contributed amount by the owner to pay a contractor. Account to show as due to the owner liability type account. See screenshot below.

Step#3 Use Check form (create + sign > vendor > check) to write the reimburse check to the Company Owner. See screenshot below.

In case there is no need to reimburse the owner (step#1), you will use a capital contributed account which would be an Owner’s Equity type account.

Attachments Expenses Transactions

Is it possible to see which expense transactions don’t have a scanned receipt attached to it?

Yes, you can verify receipts attached to ALL your expense transactions.

From the home page screen > left navigation bar > expenses > choose baby gear (far right corner) > show more > select “attachments”

This will add “paper clip” column. Number means “you have receipt attached”. If it is blank, it means you do not have receipt attached to this expense transaction. You can attach receipt from here as well, just click that transaction.

It is a good practice to attach receipts to all your expense transactions. Also, this will go a long way in case you are audited.
