            • Bill Payment Stub

              Within the vendor center if I set-up a contact e-mail address it would be nice if I can then view a payment to vendor then click an e-mail button similar to the invoices to customer. This e-mail button would pull the bill payment stub associated to the payment I'm viewing and e-mail it to the vendor. My company pays most of our bills by ACH deposit and this option would make it simple to notify the vendor of the bills being paid.

                • 1099 Mapping be more like Desktop

                  Make the mapping in QBO more like Desktop, first giving you a list of your 1099 eligible vendors, then you map the accounts based on a list created from the accounts that were used by those vendors only. Instead of having to separately choose the accounts from the entire chart of accounts.

                  • Vendor Payment Notification

                    For complete transparency, I would love to have the ability to automatically notify vendors through email when a payment has been processed. This would increase viability to our small vendors and contractors that payment is on the way, and they can be on the lookout for the check in the mail.

                    • Provide Tracking and Warnings for Vendor (Subcontractor) Insurance

                      As a general contractor, it would be very useful for QBO to allow me to enter subcontractors' general liability and workers' compensation policy expiration dates, to notify me when a policy is about to expire, and to warn me if I try to pay a subcontractor who does not have valid insurance. Since this is not needed for all vendors (in my case it's just subcontractors, but I'm sure there are other needs in other businesses), it would need to be an optional item for vendors.

                      • Sub-Vendors

                        It would really be nice to have sub-vendors like you do with customers. That would allow us to report via 1099 at a top level and have various DBA payments be made. I had a challenging time with Bill Payments and the 1099 process because of this for 2015.
                        It would also be helpful if QBO warned you f you have multiple vendors with the same Tax ID#. AND - the 1099 processing should not process "one" of the multiple Tax ID # vendors, it should error message all the vendors and wait for a resolution to all the vendors,…

                        • Remittance Advice - Batch Email

                          This is a basic function in any robust accounts system; ability to send batch remittance advice email to vendors/suppliers. We are eager to switch over to QBO but without this feature we will inflict significant admin resources as we process 100+ supplier payments a week. The current function to save as PDF and email remit individually is rather backwards.

                          • Multiple accou payable option in entering vendor invoices

                            I would like to pick an optional Accounts payable account to assign a bill. This was available in the desktop version and as a professional accountant find it much easier to balance credit card statements and grant obligations

                            • Vendor Direct Deposits - Desktop can do it, why can't QBO?

                              I heard that QBO was going to offer Vendor Direct Deposit so we can pay our bills online! The whole world does this, but QBO hasn't figured it out yet? I know QB Desktop is a much better program, but since QB Desktop can do it, maybe the QBO techs should talk to their colleagues and ask for their help to figure it out. It isn't rocket science! Come on, QBO, get current in your tech!! We've waited long enough already!

                                      Provide linking between time tracking and vendors to automate issuing pay to contract employees (v. time track and ee). Currently TImesheets tracks for EE, but not for vendors working contract basis who may have access to time sheet application

                                      • Form 1099- State Information Boxes 16, 17 and 18

                                        QuickBooks does not currently have the ability to report to boxes 16, 17 or 18 of Form 1099. Please add this. Intuit actually has an article about this lack of functionality.

                                        • 1099

                                          The 1099 process could be vastly improved. Tax Id numbers were missing this year for vendors that I have issued 1099's to in the past. Every vendor was in the list for 1099's even if the annual spend this year didn't reach the required reporting minimum. It would be great if the solution offered to send an email to each new vendor gathering a W-9 and tax ID number. Just have the vendor fill out the necessary information in an online form. They are most motivated when they are expecting a payment. Then, when 1099 time comes, you will already…
