What is Unapplied Cash Payment Income in QuickBooks?

by James Antonio

Unapplied cash payment appears to be a self explanatory term. However, in generic words, unapplied payments are money which has been received from the customer’s accounts and has not been applied to invoices and debit memos. Chances are, when you see such unidentified payments, you may not know which customer account the payment belongs to. You also may have to look for the correct invoice the payment should be applied to. Another scenario can be that you receive a payment from your customer that exceeds the balance on their invoice. Both ways, you may end up combing your records to check where your missing payments are.

Unapplied Cash Payment Income in QuickBooks

How to Find Unapplied Payments?

If you are reporting the payments on a cash basis, you should see two different accounts for the unapplied cash payment entries. Such accounts with intricate details are automatically created by our best chosen accounting solution, QuickBooks.

Here are some details for each of the two account types that are created under QuickBooks for reporting unapplied payments:

Unapplied Cash Payment Income

This specific account of Unapplied Cash payment Income is used for reporting income on a cash basis. Income such as customer payments that simply have been received but have not been applied to any sales form. In other words, the money was taken in, but never was declared as the income on a sales form.

In usual cases, the date of the payment comes before the invoice date. And, later on invoice date, it is applied to. For example: You may have received payment today and invoice date is next week. It stays “unapplied” until the next week, when the invoice hits the books.

Ideally, if an incorrect amount shows up in this QuickBooks account, then, you will need to apply that missing payment to a correct invoice dated prior to the payment date. Otherwise, the Unapplied Cash Payment Income will stay correct.

Another possible scenario is that any product or service item on the invoice is profiled to a bank account type. This will take the amount to go into Unapplied Cash Payment Income, for actual payment not being received. You need to ensure that the product or service is mapped to the correct account type in order to prevent this from happening.

Unapplied Cash Bill Payment Expense

This is also another type of cash payment income but will be counted on the expense side. This account is used to report the Cash Basis expense from supplier or supplier payment cheques that you may have sent but are not yet applied to a supplier bill. It can also occur in the case of a credit card account balance for which a bill is created. You will never be using this amount directly on a purchase or sales form.

If any incorrect amount starts showing in this account, you will need to apply the bill payment to a particular bill that is dated before the payment of the bill. Doing it manually can be a tedious process to follow, however, with QuickBooks, it seems just the matter of a few clicks.
