Process Expense for QuickBooks Simple Start

QuickBooks Simple Start subscription does not support bills. To get around this, you will need to process everything (bills and receipts) as Expense Receipts against a bank or credit card account.

To do so, follow the steps below:

1. Login to QuickBooks. Go to Settings > Account and Settings > Advanced > Chart of Accounts > Enable Account Numbers (if you have not done so previously).

2. Set up a credit card or bank account. In here, you put in the bank account or credit card number in the field of “Number“, not in Description.


3. login to EzzyBills, click Settings, then in the List of Approvers, create a new one for this card. (more)
