How To Unapply a Credit From an Invoice

file0001680678086Did you accidentally apply a credit to the wrong client’s invoice? No matter how hard you try to prevent it, mistakes such as this are bound to happen. Thankfully, Intuit has included a simple solution to fix this type of error. In just a few easy steps, you can “unapply” a credit from an invoice. This week, we’re going to walk you through these steps, revealing exactly how to unapply a credit from an invoice within Quickbooks.

Steps To Unapply a Credit From an Invoice:

  1. Find and open the credit memo in your Quickbooks account.
  2. Display the history associated with the credit memo by pressing Ctrl + H (shortcut command for history).
  3. Double-click the invoice on which the credit was applied.
  4. Click the Apply Credits button.
  5. Clear the current credit selection in the Previously Applied Credits window.
  6. Click Done on the Apply Credits window.
  7. Click Save & Close on the invoice to remove the credit and save your changes.

Assuming you followed the steps mentioned above, the credit should now be removed from the invoice. Sorry if you were expecting more, but that’s all it takes to unapply a credit from an invoice!

Intuit allows allows you to transfer credits from one bill to another, which may prove useful in situations where you add the credit to the wrong bill. This method is somewhat similar to the one published above, but there are a few notable differences. In order to move a credit from one bill to another, you must first open the bill in which the credit was originally applied. Once open, enter the asterisk key in front of the vendor’s name and press the Tab key. Next, click Quick Add to the vendor not found window (his will allow you to delete the vendor name once the credit is removed). Click Save & Close.

In the recording translation window, click yes when it asks you if you want to change the transaction. Now, go back to the original bill and choose the vendor from the drop-down menu. Click Save & Close. Click yes once again when it asks you if you want to change the transaction. Access Vendors > Pay Bills, and you should see the original bill is now unpaid.

If this sounds like too much work, you can always delete the bill and create a new one. However, the tutorial outlined above should walk you through the steps of unapplying/removing a credit.

Intuit Acquires Cloud Service Company itDuzzit


In an effort to further boost its cloud computing capabilities for small-to-medium-sized businesses, Intuit has acquired the Chicago-based startup company itDuzzit for an undisclosed amount.

itDuzzit isn’t your typical provider of cloud-based services, however. Instead, they offer what’s known as “if this then that” (IFTTT) services. The easiest way to describe IFTTT services is that it’s a combination of web and mobile applications integrated together on the cloud. Intuit’s goal with the acquisition is to add itDuzzit’s IFTTT capabilities to its Quickbooks platform. “This acquisition brings us closer to achieving our mission of helping every small business app connect to the QuickBooks platform,” said Avi Golan, VP and GM, Intuit Partner Platform.

So, what should you expect if you are already a customer or client of itDuzzit? Details of the acquisition remain undisclosed, but Intuit confirmed that it would not be taking down the itDuzzit platform. You can rest assured knowing the service will continue to operate and function as intended.

Of course, Itduzzit isn’t the only player in the IFTTT market. One of its direct competitors is Zapier, which offers a similar service linking web and mobile services to the same platform using cloud technology. Itduzzit stands above the rest, however, in several ways, including its sophisticated, user-friendly integration that requires little-to-no coding. It’s often difficult for small businesses to use services such as this due to the steep learning curve.

Thankfully, Itduzzit solves this problem by offering a quick and easy solution that anyone can use, regardless of his or her experience level. It’s an incredibly easy to use service that integrates seamlessly, without the need for extensive coding. And now that Intuit owns this service, we’ll likely see it implemented in Quickbooks and other Intuit products.

Intuit announced the acquisition of itDuzzit on the official company blog, saying the following:

I have very good news – Intuit has acquired itDuzzit! As you may know, itDuzzit is a cloud-centric integration platform that offers tools and pre-built integration solutions for hundreds of web-based and mobile applications.

Beyond purchasing the technology, we are really happy to welcome itDuzzit’s two founders– Joe Dennis and Steve Mendoza to Intuit. Joe and Steve created the core technology that makes it simple and fast to sync data between cloud applications – connecting apps in minutes.”

How To Print Pay Stubs In Quickbooks

Large_format_printin_239127_lStill trying to figure out how to print pay stubs in Quickbooks? Even if you happen to forget your voucher checks, you can still fire up Quickbooks to print stubs for your employees. Quickbooks will print the stubs in a landscape format, meaning the pages will contain multiple stubs. This allows for a fast and efficient method for creating pay stubs.

To print pay stubs in Quickbooks, access the File Menu > Print Forms > Pay stubs.  Now go through the list of available checks and their respective dates. If you don’t see the check you wish to print listed here, click the drop-down arrow next to Bank Account and choose another account from the list.

It’s important to note that Quickbooks automatically fills in date for each check stub by default. If this date is incorrect and/or you wish to change it for whatever reason, enter a new starting and finish date in the Checks Dated and Thru field. Double-check this field to ensure it’s correct before proceeding, because you won’t be able to change the date on your pay stubs once they are printed.

You should now select the paychecks for which you need the stubs printed. Quickbooks will automatically print the entire list by default; however, you can click on individual checks within the list to remove them. If you wish to print all but one check in a list, for instance, you should click on the check to omit it from the printing task. Alternatively, you can select None to print individual checks instead of an entire list.

When you are finished selecting the checks you wish to print, click OK, followed by choosing a font (optional) and the number of print copies.

What should you do if Quickbooks isn’t printing your pay stubs? First, check to make sure the correct printer is selected in Quickbooks. If you have multiple printer drivers installed on your desktop or laptop computer, it could be trying to print from an old printer — one that’s no longer connected to your computer. Nine out of ten times, this problem is caused by Quickbooks trying to print via a disconnected or non-existent printer. If the right printer is selected and your pay stubs still aren’t printing, refer to Intuit’s help section for more information.

Google Boosts Cloud Capabilities With Acquisition of Zync

Photoxpress_2881383Google recently boosted its cloud computing capabilities by purchasing the San Francisco-based video and special effects company Zync, Inc.

Zync is known for its role in a number of big-budget Hollywood movies, including “Transformers,” “Star Trek Into Darkness” and “Looper.” The special effects company offers its graphic rendering service to movie production companies, allowing them to use their cloud-based computing processes for a fee. Most people are completely unaware as to how much computing power is necessary to render CGI and special effects in movies such as these. It’s companies like Zync who are able to create realistic computer-generated images, essentially making the viewer feel like he or she is in the movie.

In the past, a large portion of the cloud-based computing processes for tasks such as these went through Amazon Web Services (AWS). With Google now at the helm, though, rendering services may soon be switched over to Google’s cloud rather than AWS. While Google has yet to disclose what (if any) major changes they will make to Zync, they did state that services will be sold on a per-minute basis.

Cloud technology has become a hot topic as of late, with several major tech companies — Google, Microsoft, Intuit, Amazon and Adobe — jumping on the bandwagon. As the race for the “best” cloud services heats up,Google is pulling out all the stops to try and keep up. Its latest acquisition of Zync is just one more signal that cloud computing is here to stay.

The search engine giant announced the news on its cloud computing blog, issuing the following statement:

Today we are announcing that Zync Render, the visual effects cloud rendering technology behind Star Trek Into Darkness and Looper, is joining the Google Cloud Platform team.

Creating amazing special effects requires a skilled team of visual artists and designers, backed by a highly powerful infrastructure to render scenes. Many studios, however, don’t have the resources or desire to create an in-house rendering farm, or they need to burst past their existing capacity.”

So, how much did Google pay for thi

  • Bitspin

  • Imperium

Intuit Acquires UK Payroll Service PaySuite

hQ2zu1he_400x400Intuit, maker of Quickbooks, announced the acquisition of the U.K.-based payroll service PaySuite earlier this month.

According to a blog post made by Intuit, Quickbooks is used by some 1.7 million users worldwide, making it the most popular business accounting software. Intuit also shared some insight into its decision regarding the acquisition of PaySuite, stating that it will help them accomplish their goal of achieving “best-in-class add-on services that integrate seamlessly with our core accounting application.”

So, what exactly is PaySuite? And why does Intuit believe it will boost their presence in the accounting software market? PaySuite is an all-inclusive business payroll service based out of the U.K. Unlike most payroll services, however, PaySuite offers a variety of helpful tools and features to streamline the process of running a business. Of course, this is a similar approach used by Intuit, which also offers a variety of tools and features in its Quickbooks products.

Another reason why PaySuite shines above competing payroll services is because it’s designed with an emphasis of simplicity and ease of use. Once you’ve entered the number of hours worked by employees, it will automatically calculate the appropriate tax, generate an electronic payslip, and then send Real Time Information (RTI) submission to the HMRC. This hands-off approach is one of the many reasons why so many U.K. businesses choose  PaySuite for their payroll services.

Intuit notes that the recent acquisition of PaySuite is part of a larger plan to offer small businesses a full-range of cloud-based software. With PaySuite under its belt, Intuit can help small businesses integrate their payroll data directly into Quickbooks, which subsequently will save time and energy.

Some of the different features offered in PaySuite include:

  • Bacs
  • Reporting
  • Real-time data
  • Cloud technology
  • Unlimited employees
  • P45
  • Calculate PAYE and NI
  • Electronic payslips
  • Pensions
  • Unlimited Payrolls

“All the features you need to pay your wages/ PaySuite has been designed for the needs of small-medium businesses. Simply enter the hours your staff have worked, PaySuite will then calculate the PAYE and NI. You can then file with HMRC your Real Time Information (RTI), generate a payslip by email or simply print it off.,” wrote PaySuite on its official website.

How To Print The Check Register

Photoxpress_4169137Can’t seem to locate the option to print the check register in your Quickbooks account? This is obviously a critical process that nearly every business owner will use at some point or another. If you are balancing your bank account, for instance, you’ll probably want copies of your statements and transactions. But how exactly do you print the check register in Quickbooks?

Steps To Printing The Check Register

Thankfully, printing the check register is a quick and easy process that should only take a couple minutes to complete. Intuit has streamlined the process by implementing several convenient shortcuts designed specifically for this task. So the next time you are looking to print the check register in your account, refer to this blog post for a simple step-by-step walkthrough.

To print the check register, fire up your Quickbooks and access Edit from the main menu, followed by Use Register. You should see a list of applicable accounts appear on your screen. Scan through the accounts and choose the one that you wish to print and click OK. Lok at the top of the register for the Print button. Click it and enter both a starting and end date for the range you wish to print. If you only want to print the check register for a particularly month, select the month in the date range. There’s no need to print the entire account history if you only need a select date, so make sure the range is set up appropriately.

Note: Quickbooks allows you to print the check register in split detail. If you wish to take advantage of this feature, click the box labeled Print splits detail. In doing so, Quickbooks will split the detail in two separate documents.

When you are finished choosing the account and date range for the check register, click OK followed by Print.

Exporting Check Register

Some users may prefer to export their check register as a text or CSV file rather than print it. The process is pretty much the same, only with a few minor changes. Before you click Print, choose Settings > and select either ASCII Text File, Comma Delimited File or Tab Delimited File. Choose a location to store the file (e.g. your computer hard drive, flash drive, cloud, etc.) and click Save.
