SOLVEDby IntuitEasyACCTUpdated July 27, 2021

Before you start

You can also set up customers on the fly by entering a new customer ID number in the A/R Transaction Entry screen.

  1. Go to Accounts Receivable > Update Company Files > A/R Setup Wizard and enter the default items for alerts, service charge codes, and typical payment terms. Entering these now will speed up the process of setting up customers.
  2. Select the Update Products Services screen and define your billable items.

To add customers

  1. Go to Update Company Files > Customer Information and select New Record.
  2. Enter a unique alphanumeric ID number and the customer contact information.
  3. Go to the Std. G/L Account field and enter the G/L Accounts Receivable account number for the customer invoice.
    • This field is used for tracking G/L distribution and for posting to the general ledger module.
    • If an account number isn't entered, the posting will use the account number assigned in the A/R Setup Wizard Sales Terms.
  4. In the Tax Code field, select the Sales Tax Code to be used for the customer.
