Purchase Orders – How to select Expense Accounts?


I’m running Quickbooks enterprise. I’ve just started using purchase orders. When I pick an account to code the item to that I am ordering, only income accounts are selectable. Can I set PO up so I can select expense accounts?


Yes, you can select New Item going to specific expense account of your selection.

Go to Items > New (located bottom left) > Select Other Charge > Provide the information. Make it non-taxable. Leave rate blank. Select expense account. And Save.

You can create as many as you want.
