can I backdate a payment receipt?

 I am inputting 2018 receivables and when I click on paid, it defers to today's date, but was paid in 2018.  Need help.  Usine self-employed version of QB.


I’m pleased to have you here in the Community, Alison R. Seay

QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE) is designed to mark the payment as paid for today’s date. Currently, there isn’t an option to backdate the payment receipt to 2018.

We’d love to hear your ideas on how we can make QBSE better for you. While this option is not yet available, let’s share with our product engineers about your suggestion. This way, they'll use this feedback for future program updates.

Here’s how to submit your valuable feedback:

  1. Go to
  2. Select QuickBooks Features.
  3. Type in your comments and suggestions.
  4. Enter your name, e-mail, and address.
  5. Click Submit.

Please let me know how it goes on your end, Alison R. Seay. Feel free to add a comment below if you have other concerns. I’ll be around to help. Have an awesome day!

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.
