Is it possible to add custom fields to QBO UK Version? I'm looking to add approximately 5 custom fields to customers to match my US QBO and then consolidate


Hi amvietti,

You can add custom fields to appear on your sales forms. Let me show you how.

  1. Click the Gear icon on the Toolbar.
  2. Choose Account and Settings.
  3. Select Sales, then go to the Sales form content section.
  4. Click the pencil icon in that section.
  5. Enter a Name into each dialogue box beneath the heading Custom fields and select whether you want the field to be internal (only displayed in QuickBooks), or public (displayed in QuickBooks and displayed/printed on sales forms).
  6. Click Save and then Done.
These fields will now appear on your sales forms. 

Here's an article for your future reference about customising sales forms. How to Customizing Invoices, Estimates, And Sales Receipts.

Keep in touch if you need anything else. I'm right here to help.

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.
