You will need to create a few new accounts in the Chart of Accounts:
Clearing Account (Category Type = Banking)
Income Account (Category Type = Income)
Overage/Underage Expense Account (Category Type = Expense)
To create new accounts (left blue navigation bar > transactions > chart of accounts > new)
You will need to create Products/Services associated with the following account types:
Sales categories = Sales Income account (make it taxable if your charge sales tax)
Cash= Undeposited funds
Checks= Undeposited funds
Visa/MasterCard = Undeposited funds
American Express = Undeposited funds
Discover = Undeposited funds
Overage/underage (for drawer shortages) = Expense account
To create products/services list (from the home page screen > company gear (upper right corner) > lists > products/services > new (upper right corner)
You will also need to enable sales tax settings (if needed).
Sales tax = (left blue navigation bar > sales tax > add/edit tax rates and agencies). QBO will automatically create a Sales Tax Liability account. You do not need to create sales tax account in the Chart of Accounts separately.
Now you need to create recurring Sales Receipt template (from the home page screen > company gear (upper right corner) > lists > recurring transactions > new (upper right corner).
Now you are ready to create a Sales Receipt for each day based on end of the day Cash Register run (from the home page screen > company gear (upper right corner) > lists > recurring transactions > use under action column).
Note: By recording all of the Sales as positives and all of the Payments (Expenses & Cash Shortage) as negatives, the net amount of the Sales Receipt should be Zero.
In this example, at the end of the day, you have $1,000.00 in Sales, $80.00 in Sales Tax. The cash register count for Cash is $200.00, ‘Checks’ is 300.00, Visa/MasterCard is $390.00, American Express is $80.00, Discover is $80.00 and Cash Shortage is $10.00. The sales report that day shows $1,080.00 in Sales ($1,000 sales income plus $80 sales tax).
In case of additional expense payments from the cash register, create new products/services mapped to appropriate expense category of Chart of Accounts.
Finally, go to Undeposited Funds and record the deposit for the amounts actually deposited in the bank.
To do this (from the home page screen > create + sign > other > bank deposit). Select deposit date in QBO based on bank posting date.
Note to Simple Start users: since there is no “Recurring Transactions” feature available in Simple Start, you will need to follow all the setup instructions and create a Sales Receipt for daily sales. Transactions will be recorded the same way in QBO.
