In Brief...

Credit cards can be used to purchase supplies and inventory or to make bill payments. If a credit card has been set up in your chart of accounts, transactions can be entered to record charges to the credit card account. To record charges to a credit card in QuickBooks, follow these five steps.

This feature works the same in versions 2011–2016 of QuickBooks.

Instructions

  1. From the menu, select Banking > Enter Credit Card Charges.
    Enter Credit Card Charges

  2. In the Enter Credit Card Charges dialog box, from the Credit Card drop-down list, select the credit card account.
    Select Account

  3. In the Amount field, type the amount of the charge.

  4. In the detail section, locate the transaction, and from the Account drop-down list, select the account category for the expense (e.g., Office Supplies).

  5. Review the entry and then click Save & Close.
