Quickbooks auto-calculates taxes for you when you enter receipts. This is a cool time-saving feature. Where Quickbooks doesn’t do so well with its auto-calculation is when there are tips added to a receipt, such as with meals purchased at a restaurant.
To enter the proper amounts for that restaurant bill into Quickbooks, you need to do one manual calculation.
Let’s take a restaurant receipt as an example.
If you pay with a credit or debit card, you usually receive two documents, the restaurant receipt and the credit or debit card receipt. You need both.
In Quickbooks, you need the following information from both receipts.
If you look at the Quickbooks screen shot, you’ll see where you enter these numbers.
I hope you found this quick tip (pun intended) useful!
