QuickBooks added a new feature in 2011 which I would like to showcase today as it can help you tie up your end-of-year accounts receivables. The Collections Center displays which invoices are past due or almost overdue. If you are using QuickBooks for property management, tenant invoices will appear to let you know who has not paid rent or miscellaneous charges.
To access the Collections Center, open the Customer Center. There is a button on the top bar. You can switch between tabs on the top of the window to view the overdue invoices and the almost overdue invoices.
Within the Center you can send emails to the customers to remind them of the invoices. If the customer is missing an email, the envelope warning shown above will appear. You can also keep notes of when you contacted the customer or tenant to collect the overdue invoice.
It even lists the phone number so you have all of the collections data in one place.
