Intuit Pushes Through Big Price Increases on QuickBooks Enterprise Desktop 2018 Edition

What is a Sales Receipt in QuickBooks and How Can It Help Me?

Ever notice the little icon on the QuickBooks desktop road map that says Create Sales Receipts and wonder what it's all about?

Here's the scoop...

A sales receipt is designed to post the sale of your product/service AND the payment for it all in the same transaction.

In the traditional invoice process (where you sell now and (hopefully) get paid later), there are three steps:

  1. Create the invoice
  2. Post the customer payment when received to credit the open invoice(s)
  3. Deposit the money in the bank

With the QuickBooks sales receipt process, if you're getting paid at the same time you deliver, you've now just cut the process down to two steps:

  1. Create the sales receipt
  2. Deposit the money in the bank

This results in 33% less work for you - how cool is that?

In fact, it is so cool, a client to whom I showed the sales receipt functionality exclaimed - "this is freakin' cool and will be an amazing game changer for our business!"

Love to hear things like that!

On the sales receipt screen, you simply plug in the payment details right there too as shown in the screen shot below:

Create the sales receipt, save it, and you're on your way to getting more done in less time.

Please share your experiences with QuickBooks sales receipts with us! Look forward to hearing how they work/don't work for your business...

Great post! Thank you. So what is happening if a sales receipt is parked in my bank account, and the. Now on my p&l, some of them are showing in a COGS as a negative amount? How can I change that?
