How do I enter checks/payments into QuickBooks as quickly as I receive them, rather then waiting until I make a deposit and listing everything then.
I have taken over the "Treasurer's" position for a Non-Profit board and am working with QuickBooks 2010 Premier. It has been so long since I've worked with QuickBooks. A little refresher/tips would be appreciated with this question: We receive membership applications/renewals year round. How do I enter those checks into QuickBooks as quickly as I receive them, rather then waiting until I make a deposit and listing everything then. The membership applications are not sales or invoices generated in QuickBooks so this would be the first "entry" of them into the system. To name a few accounts we have off hand, we have "Checking - Bank", "Membership Dues - Income", "Undeposited Funds - Other Current Asset." Any tip where to file these prior to entering a deposit and then what to do when entering the deposit would be greatly appreciated! Sorry for the Accounting 101 question.
