Do you need to modify a sales receipt that you’ve already deposited into your bank account? In Quickbooks, you can’t edit or otherwise modify a sales receipt after depositing it. However, there’s a simple workaround that will allow you to make changes to it. This involves removing the sales receipt, followed by editing it, and then adding it back to your deposit. It may sound like a lot of work, but it’s actually relatively easy and painless. Here’s how to modify a sales receipt in Quickbooks that you’ve already deposited.
First and foremost, you’ll need to remove the sales receipt from the deposit. This is done by logging in to your Quickbooks account and clicking the gear icon at the top of the page, followed by “Chart of Accounts.” After locating the deposit account, click the “View register.” Next, locate the deposit with the sales receipt and click “Edit.” You can then click the check mark to remove the transaction from the deposit. Complete the process by clicking “Save,” followed by “Yes.”
After removing the sales receipt from the deposit, you’ll need to edit the payment. Go back to the home screen of your Quickbooks account and click the gear icon, followed by “Chart of Accounts” again. After locating the deposit account, click “View register.” Next, locate and open the deposit. You should see a “Received From” field, in which you can choose the customer whom paid you the money. Clicking the customer’s name will open the “Sales Receipt” window, and here you can modify the payment. When finished, click “Save” and “Yes” to complete the changes.
The final step is to replace the sales receipt in the deposit. Remember, the entire process of modifying a sales receipt that you’ve already deposited involves removing the sales receipt from the deposit, editing it, and then adding it back. With your sales receipt edited, it’s time to add it back. Go back to your “Chart of Accounts” and “View register,” and choose the deposit. From here, you can click “Edit” to add it back. When finished, click ‘Save and Yes,” after which the newly corrected deposit should now appear in your account. Keep in mind that you may see the letter “R” next to your deposit. If present, this indicates that it has been reconciled.
