URGENT News Flash – Do Not Click on QuickBooks Security Notice

We’ve had several clients report receiving emails supposedly from Intuit with the title QuickBooks Security Notice or QuickBooks Update.   These emails are not genuine.  DO NOT click on the link.

Here’s what it looks like – note non-USA date formatting.  It’s a dead giveaway.  The link varies, but it’s never an Intuit website and every one I’ve seen this morning has an international domain (.de or .ch instead of .com).  You can normally see what a link’s URL is by hovering over it.  I removed it below because I don’t want anyone accidentally clicking on it.

How to Collect Annual Dues in QuickBooks

I would like to know if it is possible to use QuickBooks to collect annual dues. The help text on QuickBooks doesn’t address this. Thank you.

Both QuickBooks 2011 and QuickBooks 2012 has a batch invoicing feature which works really well for collecting recurring charges. If you’re using an older version, you can use memorized transactions.

How to Track Sales Tax or VAT that You Can Claim Back QuickBooks

Hi Ruth. I noticed there are two ways in which you can enter expenses such as Telephone Bills, Car Hire, etc. You can either set-up items to do this or enter it directly as an expense. I was wondering what you opinion is on the prefered methods. I would think the latter is the correct way but I cant see where you enter the VAT element on an expense (the Tax that you can claim back). Many thanks

Most people don’t even notice that there is an Items tab on bills, checks or credit card charges, which is used primarily to do job costing.

Neither option automatically tracks VAT, but you can create a separate account to keep track of it in your chart of accounts and use it on the Expenses tab. Or you can create an item that’s mapped to the account and use it on the Items tab.

In either case, it shouldn’t be an expense account. I’d either use a current asset or a current liability account (which would have a negative balance).
