I posted some invoices and then later had them paid but they do not appear in the profit and loss account under income. where could they be?


Thank you for posting here in the Community, vincentapiyo.

Let me share some information on how to locate this missing income from your Profit and Loss report.

Please check the date that you’ve set for your invoice. If you’re having a cash basis report, you will use the invoice date in generating the report.

When receiving a payment, that will affect your Accounts Receivable and your bank account. Make sure to have the invoice created for the customer itself.

Check this article for more information about this: Income and expense transactions missing from my Profit and Loss report.

That should help you find your missing income on your Profit and Loss report. Let me know if you have follow-up questions in generating this report by leaving a comment below. I'm always here to assist. Take care and have a great rest of the 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.
