Retainer

How do I post a retainer paid to an attorney in Quickbooks?

Hi Jackie,

Thanks for your question.

A retainer deposited is posted in Quickbooks as follows:

DEBIT the Bank Account (asset)
CREDIT the Retainer Account (current liability)

Services rendered against the retainer would then be posted as:

DEBIT the Retainer Account
CREDIT the Service Income Account
