Connecting to QuickBooks
Your Korona software has an integration with QuickBooks Online that makes it simple to balance your books. In just a few simple steps you can import your sales data, commodity groups, sales tax, payments, shortages, discounts, and inventory asset values.
First, make sure you already have a QuickBooks Online account and log into it. Second, log into your Korona cloud account and then navigate to Settings > Data exchange. To enable the QuickBooks Online sync, simply type QuickBooks into the text field and click +Add. Choose QuickBooks online, and then add a New Connection followed by Connect to QuickBooks. If you are already logged into your QuickBooks account, simply click on it and the two will integrate. If you are not logged in, do so here and if you have multiple QuickBooks accounts logged in, choose the appropriate one.
At this point, you will need to choose your organizational units. If you don’t choose one, the system will choose all of your units. Do this by typing the name of the organizational unit. After you start typing the full name will appear and you can press the Enter key to fill in the rest. Next, you should select a start date for syncing end of day statements. It is not recommended to go back in time for more than one week. Choose the date to which you want to sync. After the initial sync, the system will keep track of which statements have been synced already. Each subsequent sync will only sync the end of day statements that you have not yet uploaded.
Changing the Income Account
You can see your end of day statements in QuickBooks by navigating to Sales > All Sales. You will see each end of day statement listed and by clicking on them, you can see the sales from each commodity group, the tax collected, payment types, and shortages.
You might also want to take a look at the Profit and Loss report, found under Reports > Recommended Reports. This will show you a simple breakdown of your income from your commodity groups as well as your expenses.
Most likely you would want to change the income account for sales revenue. You can do that in QuickBooks under Sales > Products and Services. Simply select a commodity group from the list and click Edit. In the edit screen, you have the option to set a specific income account. If you are changing the income account after you have already uploaded sales data make sure to enable.
Your collected payments will by default go into undeposited funds. You can find a report for this in the QuickBooks reports section under Balance Report. If you would like to use a different account type for collected payments or account transaction you can change the mapping under products and services, just like we did with the commodity groups. The payment method you have selected for your supplier controls how stock receipts are imported into QuickBooks. Cash on Delivery and Direct Debit are sent over as expenses, Invoice is sent over as Bill.
Account transactions in Korona are imported to QuickBooks as income accounts. Also, under accounting, you can see any undeposited funds you may have, cash, check, or credit cards. By choosing the account, and clicking “Add Deposit” you can reconcile these numbers. By default, all of these moneys will go into undeposited funds, but you can choose to map them wherever you choose, for example: clearing account.
When syncing inventory from Korona you have the choice of three different options: Free, advanced and detailed. Choosing Basic creates one asset account named Korona Inventory. Advanced breaks down the assets into your master commodity groups and Detailed shows the exact commodity groups. For example, if you a have a product, coffee, in the commodity group “hot drinks” which is nested inside of “beverages”, Advanced would show the group beverages, while Detailed will show hot drinks.
After your initial inventory sync, you will be given more options, such as importing the cost of goods, stock receipts, as well as Inventory Asset Value.
Syncing Stock Receipts
You can sync your stock receipts from Korona to QBO as well. Stock receipts will sync to QBO as Expenses. The type of expense will be determined by the payment method you have assigned to your supplier. Suppliers with the payment method of Invoice and Prepayment will sync as Bills wherease suppliers with they payment method of Direct Debit and Cash on Delivery will sync as Checks.
