QB Issue Resolution:

Thanks for clarifying, @brooksideres. An Income account is used for sales transactions, while Expense is for bills.

 

To make sure that you’re able to enter a bill for a service, let’s enable the Purchasing information in the Products and Services page, then select an Expense account. Here’s how:

 

  1. In the Gear icon, select Product and Services.
  2. Locate the service item in the list, then click Edit under the Action column.
  3. Under the Purchasing information, check the box for I purchase this product/service from a vendor.
  4. Select an Expense account and enter the Cost if you need to.
  5. Click Save and close.

 

You can now see that service in the Product/Service column when creating a Bill.

 

For future reference, read through our help article: How to enter and pay bills. It covers different ways of paying bills when it’s due.
