Q: I’m a realtor. How do I set up an account for commission income? Do I need to create an invoice?
Then, create either a sales receipt or an invoice. Create a sales receipt if you are entering the amount of a received check OR create an invoice if you know that you are owed money. By creating an invoice, you’ll be able to track who owes you money. To verify the data, check your open invoice report.
