    • Introduce Charities SOFA Accounts based on SORP 2015 (UK)

      Please consider developing SOFA Accounts based on SORP 2015 for UK based charities. This shouldn't be something hard to achieve as all the information will be pulled from ledgers.

        Right now you can access the SOFA report in QBO.

        Here is a link to see how: https://sway.com/JhEBIG0xXliHvY6W

        What is coming in the near future for QBO SOFA report – currently you have to manually create locations as ‘funds’ and then customise the SOFA report to show ‘locations’ under ‘columns’. We will enhance this experience by doing this all for you as a default with you just renaming the location as a particular fund you’re using.

        Thanks,

        QuickBooks UK team

      • export reports to excel

        when exporting some reports to excel we get numbers in the amount and balance columns that come over as "number stored as text" this didnt happen up until last friday. it doesnt happen on all reports and no troubleshooting we have done fixes this. I cant apply formulas to the reports that show up like this so it is a real hindrance for me to have them like this.

        • SUBTOTAL

          It would be extremely awesome if there was a option to have Subtotal Feature on the Estimate and Invoice page to give subtotals on line Items on the Form it self

          • More search options in customer center.

            It would be nice to be able to search for the customer by any info that is provided. My technicians do not always know customer names as they do not make contact with the clients, so it is much easier for them to just give me an address. It would be nice to be able to start typing in part of an address and have options come up. Otherwise I have to run a full report and then go through 100+ clients to see whose name belongs to whose address.

            • Put the reminders list and recurring transactions list on the homepage, or on the toolbar on the left side of the screen. Thanks!

              Easy access to recurring transactions and reminders is crucial. This is one feature I consistently used in the desktop version of Quickbooks and would love to see it on the online platform.

                Thanks for submitting this suggestion!

                To address this feedback, we have added a Tasks list on the QuickBooks Online home page. One of the tasks that can show up in this list is for recurring transaction reminders.

                When there are recurring transaction reminders pending, there will be a task in the list that will link to the reminders list page.

              • Re-order point notification for inventory items

                it will be really helpful in inventory management to have a REORDER point feature where i get a note or reminder to order more inventory once I reach my reorder point that i set for a specific inventory item.

                  • Viewing Customer Statements

                    When sending a statement to customers you are only able to view the statement activity through the history log. I would like to be able to see when a statement was sent to a customer under the specific customer just like it shows an invoice was created and a payment was received. This would be extremely helpful when speaking to a customer about their account history.

                    • NEED EASY ACCESS to STATEMENTS

                      Easy Access to Statements is critical to my bookkeeping. I have struggled with the NEW process and have repeatedly requested OB add back the ability to access a statement from the drop down box on the customer page. This is how we did it all these years. I was told to do a "statement through the SEARCH." This brings up the specific list of customer statements that i requested. I can view ONE only. The BACK button on the statement, and the back arrow at the top of the page doesn't allow you to go back. You have to go…

                        • CIS Tax scheme

                          The UK construction industry have to operate under the CIS tax scheme - It's a bit like VAT but for tax at source for subcontractors. I currently have to have two dummy bank accounts to manage CIS. Would be great if that could be written into QB. It already does VAT so shouldn't need too much coding!

                            Stage 1 & 2 completed and released

                            Hi all,

                            We’re releasing in stages and are excited to have launched the ability to create CIS transactions, generate CIS reports but can’t current e-file directly to HMRC. If you would like to switch it on, go to your company settings>Advance>Accounting and you can now switch on CIS.

                            This is how to use it in QuickBooks-

                            • If you’re a contractor, create your subbies as suppliers in QuickBooks. Enter in their Verification number and CIS rate.
                            • If you’re a Sub-contractor, create the contractor who pays you as a Customer. You would have been prompted for your own CIS rate under the settings page.

                            Some additional guidance here on what QuickBooks can do with CIS: https://sway.com/aqBYhCz7STBn5XmB

                            Stage 3 is the ability to file and automatically send out payment & deduction statements which is coming over the next few months

                            Thanks team,

                          • Add Show Statements to the Client Detail Screen

                            Add Show statements to the client detail view. In old QB I could click Statements in the Show drop down menu. The option is gone in new QB, so unless I've missed something, if I want to know the date a statement was last sent I have to search for the statement for that client outside the client view, see when the last statement was sent, go back to client view, find the client, and then create the new statement. This one little thing missing from the drop down Show menu has added a lot of extra time to processing…

                            • Print/Send statement from Customer account page

                              I can no longer print a customer open balance or transaction statement while viewing the customer account page. It used to be a choice under "CREATE NEW.." . To print a statement , I now have to close the customer account page, go to CUSTOMER section, scroll to customer name, CHECK the customer name then choose to print or send a statement. SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO THIS WHILE IN THE CUSTOMERS ACCOUNT PAGE. Why did you take this option away?

                                Please add the ability to create a customer statement when viewing the customer record detail. This was possible on the previous version....which I like much better!

                                • Statements need to show up in Customer Center

                                  We need to be able to see statements on a customer's account. It says all transactions, yet you can't see them. This is VERY annoying!!! Please switch it back the way it was! Hate this new "update" or as I call it "screw up" and "Screw your customer"!!!!

                                    When viewing registers, one has the option to hit prev, next or last. Why not first? It would save a lot of time, instead of hitting prev several times.

                                    • options under each customer account

                                      I used to be able to view recurring transactions and a history of statements sent under the customer account. I used these frequently, and find it tedious to have to open an entirely new screen or run a report to view them for a specific customer
