A frequently asked question: How do I record a refund received from a vendor in QuickBooks? I deposited this refund into my bank account... The Problem: The deposit window can be used to record of any funds received for deposit including refunds, but doesn't include an item column for inventory and units on hand tracking purposes, and doesn't include a customer / job column for job costing purposes. Also, if you've previously entered a bill credit to account for the inventory, making an entry in the deposit window using the associated expense account will not be applied against the vendor account, leaving the credit on the account unapplied. The Solutions: (Skip to the bottom of this page for a video tutorial) Option 1 - If you're not using QuickBooks to track job costing, AND aren't using items to track on hand quantities for inventory tracking purposes, AND are on the cash basis of accounting for reporting purposes, just use the deposit window to record the refund. Note the vendor name in the "Received From" column and use the expense account that was used on the original bill or check. If you plan to use this option, be sure you understand the reporting implications or check with your accountant if needed. Click here to Contact Us if you think we could help too. Option 2 - If you do use QuickBooks to track job costing, are using items to track on hand quantities for inventory tracking purposes, or are using the accrual basis of accounting for reporting purposes, follow these steps to record the refund:
