Hi Here.

Thank you for contacting Community.

There is a way to match your sales receipts to your bank payments yes. The system does have a way of matching transactions against duplicates if both the date and the amount matches. So if you had already entered in a manually income of £10 and also had the same transaction on your card. You could select the Find Match option on the banking page. You can find this by clicking on the line of the transaction in review.

This would allow you to match the bank transaction and the manual transaction to prevent duplicates.

You could however, if the total of the transaction is all recorded on your banking page simply add the transactions from the banking page. You would still be able to select the account and category but you wouldn't have to manually enter the transaction as you would be adding it directly from the online banking page.

Let me know if you have any queries. Or, if you'd like to go through this over the phone, you can call our dedicated team who will be happy to assist you. Our contact details can be found here along with our opening hours.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
