Receiving Cash

Companies that make cash sales need to record these sales, just as companies that issue invoices record their sales. If yours is a cash business, such as a retail store, you might not keep a list of all of your customers. For sales to anonymous customers, you can create a customer and name it something like Cash Customer or simply Customer and still record your sales properly in QuickBooks.

  • orange_circle_1.gif Select Customers, Enter Sales Receipts, or click the Create Sales Receipts icon on the Home page.
  • orange_circle_2.gif Enter a generic name for the cash customer in the Customer:Job field.
  • orange_circle_3.gif Select Quick Add to add this name to your customer list if the name has not been used previously.
  • orange_circle_4.gif Verify the date of the sale.
  • orange_circle_5.gif Enter the item(s) sold.
  • orange_circle_6.gif Enter the quantity and rate.
  • orange_circle_7.gif Indicate if you want the invoice to be printed or emailed, or you can choose to print the invoice now by clicking the Print button at the top of the form.
  • orange_circle_8.gif Save the form.
