How I can input a deductible payment to sent the bill to the insurance????? How I can put a discount on the invoice...


Thanks for reaching out to the Community for assistance, willysautoglass,

I’m here to share information about the available features in QuickBooks Self-Employed.

Currently, the option to send a Bill is not an option. This feature is available in QuickBooks Online. You may also want to check other QuickBooks versions which have this feature. Here’s a comparison:

As for the deductible payment, you can manually enter it to the transactions page.

To do this task, follow these steps:

  1. Click Transactions from the left navigation bar.
  2. Click Add transaction from the upper right hand.
  3. Enter the details for the specific deductible payment.
  4. Select a category.
  5. (Optional) Add notes for the specific transaction.
  6. Click Save.

For your other concern, to add a discount to your invoices, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Click Invoices from the left navigation menu, then click the Create invoice button at the upper right hand.
  2. Enter customer information.
  3. Go to the DESCRIPTION section, then click Add work link.
  4. Enter the specific item, use Flat rate and enter Amount.
  5. Click Add to invoice.
  6. Click Add work link again, then in the description field, enter the specific discount name.
  7. Use flat rate and enter negative amount for the discount.
  8. Click Add to invoice.
  9. Click Send invoice button.

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.
