In QuickBooks Desktop, how to Enter Cash Receipts


Entering a cash receipt in QuickBooks desktop is simple and straightforward if you follow the steps below:

  • Select Create Invoices from the Customers menu.
  • Choose or add a customer.
  • Fill up the blanks with pertinent information. You can also specify the transaction’s terms.
  • Select Cash Account when choosing an account to which the transaction belongs.
  • Select Save.


QuickBooks has now added your cash receipt on the desktop. If you produced an invoice for the transaction, however, you must label it as paid.


Follow the steps outlined below to do so:

  • Select Customers from the drop-down menu.
  • Choose Invoices from the drop-down menu.
  • Click Mark as Paid on the invoice that corresponds to the cash receipt.

If you don’t designate a transaction as paid, you’ll run into problems while preparing reports or reconciling statements in QuickBooks.
