Which Invoices Are Open? When Are they Due?
Question: How can I find out which invoices are open and when they are due?
Answer: In QuickBooks Premier, go to:
“Reports” > “Customers and Receivables” > “A/R Aging Detail”
This report will list all your open invoices and their due dates. It will also “age” the invoices, showing how long the invoices have been out in categories such as 1-30 days, 31-60 days, etc. so you can see at a glance which invoices have been out the longest.
If you want to see the actual invoice itself, move your cursor over the line of the invoice in the A/R Aging Detail and wait until the cursor changes to a magnifying glass. Double click on the magnifying glass to “drilldown” on the invoice, and you will see the actual invoice.
