Part VII: Appendixes > Creating General Journal Entries

Creating General Journal Entries

In QuickBooks, you make a general journal entry to reflect the adjustments to your accounts that don’t occur naturally through your forms such as invoices, bills, and checks. A general journal entry must always have two sides—a debit and a credit.

If an amount was misclassified, for example, a general journal entry can be made to correct the classification of the amount. If $100 was recorded as a repair expense when it was supposed to be an expense for office supplies, you can make a general journal entry to reduce the repairs expense account by $100 and increase the office supplies account for $100 without having to open any forms.
