How to Enter a Refund Check in QuickBooks
A reader purchased something on a credit card, and when she returned it she was given a check instead of a credit on her credit card. She doesn’t know how to enter the refund in QuickBooks because she can’t figure out its relationship to her credit card tracking. She also said she doesn’t want to enter the vendor into the system.
This is easy because a refund is unconnected to credit card activity and you don’t have to enter a vendor name to create a transaction. Open the QuickBooks Make Deposits window and use the expense account you used when you purchased the article. Enter the amount. That’s all you have to do.
