How to Save as an Estimate as a PDF in QuickBooks

I have Simple Start 2007 and I am trying to email a estimate.. obviously outdated, but saving as a pdf is not an option in the file menu… any suggestions? Thank You
This will work for all versions of QuickBooks, not just Simple Start. In fact, it’ll work any time you need to print a pdf in any software.

Instead of Save choose Print and select a PDF printer. QuickBooks usually installs a PDF printer for you, but you can also use the free version of CutePDF.

How to Check when no Federal Taxes are Withheld in QuickBooks Payroll

Hi Ruth… I just set up a new employee with 1 exemption in Intuit Online Payroll. After inputting his hours (16.86), I viewed his check and there is no federal taxes withheld. His gross pay is $202.32 and he’s Married with 1 exemption. Is that normal?
He doesn’t make enough yet to have any withholding. I ran your information through Intuit Online Payroll’s Paycheck Calculator and it matches up to his paycheck perfectly.

Does the License Ever Expire for QuickBooks?

Does the license ever expire for QuickBooks?

The license never expires, but after three years it’s no longer supported. For instance, only 2009-2012 are currently supported and 2009 will stop being supported next year, probably in May. Once it’s no longer supported, not only can you no longer get tech support but many features stop working like payroll, merchant services, online banking, and even the ability to email forms and reports.

So most people upgrade every 3 years. But there’s no requirement that you do so and as long as you aren’t having problems with your current version you can keep using it as long as you like.

How to Book Payroll Paid with Cash Sales in QuickBooks

I have a client that pays their employees with cash. The payroll service runs the payroll every week and gives my client “slips” that are given with the cash to the employees every week. The cash comes from sales. How do I record the “debit to net payroll payable” and “credit to sales?”
You shouldn’t credit sales. Instead, you should deposit the sales into a petty cash bank account and write a check from petty cash. If you deposit any of the sales into the checking account, you should make that deposit too. You need to find out where sales are deposited now. Are they all sitting in undeposited funds? Are they all being deposited individually into the checking account? You need to make sure they’re deposited into the correct bank account.The tricky part is that your payroll expense is more than the net payroll. You’ll need to enter gross payroll to the payroll expense line and then negative lines for all the payroll deductions mapped to payroll liability accounts, leaving the net payroll as the check amount. It’s complicated which is why I recommend using QuickBooks for payroll instead of an outsourced payroll service. You can still use the petty cash account to pay cash paychecks.
