Step 1: Open QuickBooks
This instruction is referring to the QuickBooks software program, which is an accounting and financial management system that helps individuals and businesses keep track of their finances. To unapply a credit in QuickBooks, the user must first access the program’s interface. This can be done by clicking on the QuickBooks icon on the desktop screen. This action will take the user to the QuickBooks dashboard, from which they can access all the features and functions of the program. From there, the user can search for and select the ‘Unapply’ option within the ‘Accounts Receivable’ section. This will open up an interface where the user can enter the credit information and then unapply it.
Step 2: Go to the “Customers” tab
The “Customers” tab is a feature in QuickBooks that allows users to view and manage customer information. When the tab is clicked, a list of customers are displayed, along with the customer’s name, billing address, and any outstanding balances due. To unapply a credit from a customer’s account, first click on the “Customers” tab located on the top toolbar of the QuickBooks interface. This will open up a list of all your customers. Once you have located the customer you wish to unapply a credit to, click on their name to open the customer page. On the customer page, there will be an “Outstanding Transactions” section. This section displays any credits that have been applied to the customer’s account. To unapply the credit, simply click the “Unapply” button next to the transaction. This will remove the credit from the customer’s balance, allowing them to owe money once again.
Step 3: Select the customer
To unapply a credit in QuickBooks, first click on the Customer Center tab at the top of the screen. This will open the Customer Center window and display a list of all the customers that you have entered in your QuickBooks system. Select the customer who you wish to unapply the credit from. After selecting the customer, you will see a list of all their transactions, including the credit that you wish to unapply. Select the appropriate credit and click the “Unapply” button to remove the credit from the customer’s account.
Step 4: Select the credit that needs to be unapplied
The Open Invoices tab is located on the left side of the QuickBooks dashboard. When clicking on it, a list of all outstanding invoices will appear. From this list, select the invoice that has the credit applied to it. By selecting the invoice, the “Unapply Credit” button will appear at the top of the page. Click this button to remove the credit from the invoice. Depending on the type of credit, some may need to be manually removed while others can be taken off with the click of a button. Once the credit is unapplied, the balance of the invoice should update to reflect the change.
Step 5: Unapply the credit
The “Actions” tab is a feature in Quickbooks that allows users to perform specific actions on a particular account. In this case, the user needs to unapply a credit from an account. To do so, they should first click on the “Actions” tab, which is located in the upper-right corner of the account page.
Once the “Actions” tab is selected, the user should then select the option for “Unapply Credit” from the available options. This option will be located near the bottom of the list of available actions.
After selecting the “Unapply Credit” option, the user will be prompted to confirm the action by clicking the “Yes” button. Upon clicking the “Yes” button, the credit will be successfully removed from the account.
Step 6: Select how the credit should be handled
Refund the Credit to Customer: This option allows the user to return the credit from the customer’s account to them. The credit will be removed from the customer’s account and returned to the customer in the form of a refund. This can be done by issuing a check, sending a wire transfer, or making a refund directly to the customer’s credit card.
iLeave the Credit on the Account: This option allows the user to keep the credit on the customer’s account. This means that the customer will be able to use the credit towards future purchases or services. The credit will remain on the customer’s account until it is used or a refund is issued. This option is often used when the customer needs to use the credit in the near future.
Step 7: Confirm the action
The instruction given in the text is for someone to unapply a credit in QuickBooks. This can be done by clicking the “OK” button. Unapplying a credit typically involves removing the payment amount associated with the credit from the customer’s account balance in QuickBooks. This action is necessary when you need to adjust the customer’s account balance by taking away a credit they have previously received. It is also often done as a part of the process of voiding a credit transaction. By clicking “OK,” the customer’s account balance will be adjusted to reflect that the credit has been unapplied, and the customer will no longer be able to benefit from the credit.
