Why is QuickBooks POS (Desktop) allowing return of one items from same sales receipts more than once. Item summary report shows a negative sales figure for that item?

I was able to return one item in same sales receipt twice. I sold one item (Qty  = 6). Returned it twice mistakenly and now in item summary it shows negative sales figures.


Thank you for posting, sawadh.

Let me provide some information about what causes the negative sales figure for your items.

QuickBooks has no control on the number of times you'll process the return. This negative figure was caused by how you process it. Here are the ways on how to process returned items:

To correct or reverse this returned item, I suggest reaching out to our Support Team. They can view your account in a secure environment and help you with the process. Check this article on how to reach them: Intuit Support Professionals.  

That should get you in the right direction. Let me know how the call goes. If you have other concerns about your account, let me know by leaving a comment below. I wish you continued success with your business. Enjoy the rest of the week.

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.
