Why is my paid on purchases showing up as collected on sales?


Hello there, malahideautosacc,

The transactions' amount might have been entered as positive instead of negative. Resulting to transactions showing as sales instead of expenses.

If the transactions are from the bank, you can exclude it. Then, download the transaction with its correct type.

If they are already in the register, you need to delete and recreate them.

Here’s how:

  1. Click Accounting on the left pane.
  2. Select Chart of accounts.
  3. Select the Bank Register.
  4. Locate, and click the transaction to open.
  5. Click Delete.

Stay in touch with me if you have more questions.

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.
