It is not enough to add a customer to a deposit transaction directly within your bank feed. Understand that you are not recording an actual sale of your products and services if you do not create a customer invoice. There will not be any transactions under your customer account if you do not create sales forms. Customer Invoices should be created in your QuickBooks Online account each time you sell a product and service item that your customer will be paying you for on terms. You should create Customer Invoices in QuickBooks Online if you would like to create sales reports and produce meaningful financial reports for your business.

Track Sales Tax Liability & On-Hand Inventory with Invoices

The creation of customer invoices is also how your sales tax liabilities and on-hand inventory quantities are tracked in your QuickBooks Online account. For this reason, we have included a look into your new QuickBooks Online account for your customer invoices as a component of our Good-Bookkeeping Score™ . If you have not entered any customer invoices in QuickBooks Online, we consider this an underutilization of your new QuickBooks Online account.
