The specified record must first exist in QuickBooks before this item can be exported.
I am getting this error with two vendor bills that I am trying to transfer to QB: ["There is an invalid reference to QuickBooks Account "Tax Paid on Bills" in the Bill. QuickBooks error message: Invalid argument. The specified record does not exist in the list. The specified record must first exist in QuickBooks before this item can be exported."] This item does exist in QB, but its not being used. I don`t see how the AP Vendor Bill refers to it at all.
During the first QuickBooks Export from AdvancePro, AdvancePro creates a default expense account called "Tax Paid on Bills".
Make sure that this account is not a sub-account of any other account. This needs to exist in QuickBooks before Bills will be exported.
You can mark those accounts for re-export for V 5.10 and upwards:
- Go to ADMIN > Site settings > QuickBooks
- Click the following button - "Re-export Default Items"
- Next go to the QB section and export
