Quickbooks After the Integration


Viewing the Connection Log

The Connection Log provides a list of every single action that has occurred during the integration process and the log screen can therefore be used to determine any issues that may occur, inclusive of validation errors or other possible faults. The log will keep the last 7 days of activity.

Log levels

You can select the following log levels: 

  • ALL: Displays all logs.
  • INFO: Displays general log information, such as products details being transferred.
  • ERROR: Displays error type logs.

  • You can import all customer and supplier data and sync them instantly.
  • (optional) You can export all customers, suppliers and business transactions (sales, purchases, supplier returns, credits, customers, suppliers) and adjustment journals in real time.

Summary of transactions between Unleashed and QuickBooks

The following is a list of transactions that can be made in Unleashed once the integration is completed. It highlights what happens in QuickBooks when a transaction is made in Unleashed. The transactions are based on what is conveyed within the Unleashed menus.

Transactions in Unleashed What happens in QuickBooks?
Purchase Order Completing a purchase order in Unleashed will create a Bill in QuickBooks for the related supplier.

Supplier Return Once the Supplier Return is completed, it is synced to QuickBooks. You can find it under the Supplier Credit in QuickBooks.

Furthermore, a user cannot change their QuickBooks account once they are connected to Unleashed and only one account can be connected. Unleashed does not keep track of the changes made within your QuickBooks account. For example, if you change data settings in QuickBooks, then these changes will not be synced to Unleashed.
The Unleashed Production module is not applicable to accounting provider functions and features.

About QuickBooks deposits & prepayments

If you pay for something in advance of receiving it — whether it is the full amount or a deposit— you may want to record this in your accounting and inventory system. If you have paid for something in advance, the transaction shows up on your bank statement. Using this transaction, you can create a prepayment which means it can then be reconciled (you can create the prepayment transaction without the entry on your bank statement as well). This means if any deposits are made regardless of whether it is you paying or receiving it, you can reconcile it to a prepayment transaction in QuickBooks. When the Sale or Purchase invoice is then sent to QuickBooks from Unleashed, you can match it up to the prepayment.

Process of handling deposits/prepayment

For sales invoices

  1. Create a Sales Invoice in Unleashed for a customer.
  2. Receive a 50% deposit from the customer before sending the goods.
  3. Record the Prepayment in your accounting provider and reconcile it to the 50% deposit.
  4. When sending the goods to the customer, complete the invoice in Unleashed.
  5. Match the Prepayment in your accounting provider to the newly created Accounts Receivable Invoice (from Unleashed).

For purchase orders

  1. Create and send a purchase order from Unleashed.
  2. Pay a 50% deposit to the supplier before receiving the goods.
  3. Record the Prepayment in your accounting provider, and reconcile it to the 50% deposit.
  4. When receiving the physical order, receipt it in Unleashed.
  5. Match the Prepayment in your accounting provider to the newly created Accounts Payable Invoice (from Unleashed).

For Prepayments for Customers

See QuickBooks support.

For Supplier Deposits

If you use accrual-based accounting, use these procedures to:

  • Give the supplier a deposit (for example: for a rental)

  • Record when you get the deposit back

If you use cash-basis accounting, use a check to record the deposit, assigning an expense account for the deposit.

Give the supplier a deposit

  1. Create a check to enter a payment to your supplier.
  2. Enter all the information as you would a regular check.
  3. For Account, enter the name of an account to track the deposit. When you create the account, make it an:
    • Other current asset account
    • Other current asset detail type

Record when you get the deposit back

Transfer the money

  • From your account where you track the deposit.

  • To your bank account where you put the money.

If some of the money is withheld, create a journal entry:

  • Debit the account where you track the deposit.

  • Credit the expense account for the purpose of the money withheld.
