Enter A Delayed Charge
Step by Step: Enter A Delayed Charge
1. To open Quick Create click the + sign in the top right of QuickBooks; if you don’t see the expanded view, click Show more.
2. Click Delayed Charge. A delayed charge is a non-posting transaction; you’re telling QuickBooks you will need to invoice a customer for something in the future. Let’s say you are a landscaping service and do gardening for multiple customers. Every day you record where you gardened that day, but you invoice only once a month. You can record that activity in QuickBooks as a delayed charge and, at month end, create an invoice.
3. Enter Amy’s Bird Sanctuary. In the Date field type a w to select the beginning of the currently-displayed week. Enter Gardening under the Product/Service column. Enter 4 under the QTY (Quantity) column and $35 under the Rate column. Click Save and new.
4. Enter Amy’s Bird Sanctuary. In the Date field, type a k and +. K brings you to the end of this week and the + advances a day, which brings you to the beginning of next week. Enter Gardening under the Product/Service column. (Some of this might be there already, if the Automation preferences are set to Pre-fill forms with previously entered content in Account and Settings.) Enter 3 under the QTY column and $35 under the Rate column. Click Save and close.
