Accounts payable (AP): The amount of money a company owes creditors (suppliers, etc.) in return for goods and/or services they have delivered.

Accounts receivable (AR): The amount of money owed by customers or clients to a business after goods or services have been delivered and/or used.

AP Cycle: The record of the outstanding bills of a business. It is the money you owe your vendors for goods or services that you purchased on credit. Accounts Payable is called A/P for short. (Even though the word "accounts" is plural, QuickBooks uses a single account on the Chart of Accounts to track all outstanding bills.) There are 2 usual A/P workflows available in QuickBooks Desktop. To record your A/P transactions, choose one workflow that suits your business process and follow the steps in creating each transaction from your selected workflow. Workflow 1: Purchase Order - Receive Inventory - Enter Bills against Inventory - Bill Payment and Workflow 2: Enter Bills - Pay Bills.

AR Cycle: The record of money owed to your business for goods or services; that is, invoices for which your business hasn't received payment yet. Accounts Receivable is called A/R for short. (Even though the word "accounts" is plural, QuickBooks uses a single account on the chart of accounts to track all outstanding invoices.) Other terms for Accounts receivable are Notes and Collectibles. There are five usual A/R workflows available in QuickBooks Desktop. To record your A/R transactions, choose one workflow that suits your business process and follow the steps in creating each transaction from your selected workflow. Workflow 1: Estimate - Sales Order - Invoice - Payment - Deposit, Workflow 2: Sales Order - Invoice - Payment Deposit, Workflow 3: Estimate – Invoice – Payment – Deposit, Workflow 4: Invoice – Payment – Deposit, and Workflow 5: Statement Charges – Finance Charges – Statement – Payment – Deposit

Asset: Property owned by a person or company, regarded as having value and available to meet debts, commitments or legacies.

Chart of Accounts: Chart of Accounts is the complete list of all the company’s accounts and balances. In QuickBooks, it represents and organizes the company's assets, liabilities, income, and expense. QuickBooks automatically creates your chart of accounts based on the industry and type of company you choose when creating your company file. If you just created your file, make sure to record the accounts' opening balances.

Equity: The total value of your business after you’ve subtracted what you owe [“liabilities”] from what you own [“assets”].

Liabilities (current and long-term) (CL, LTL): A company's debts or financial obligations incurred during business operations. Current liabilities (CL) are those debts that are payable within a year, such as a debt to suppliers. Long-term liabilities (LTL) are typically payable over a period of time greater than one year. An example of a long-term liability would be a multi-year mortgage for office space.

Purchase Order: A legal contract between a buyer and a vendor. It lists the materials or services to be purchased on specified terms and conditions (quantity, price / pricing conditions, delivery date).

QuickBooks Desktop: QuickBooks Desktop is a one-time purchase accounting software to be installed on your office desktop computer.

QuickBooks Online: QuickBooks Online is our cloud-based subscription service that gives you the freedom to work from any device — anytime, anywhere.

Reports: A report is a set of instructions that the program uses to display data from your company file. All available reports can be accessed through the QuickBooks Reports menu.

Snapshots: The Company Snapshot is a panel that is updated in real time with all of your company's information that's entered into QuickBooks. The program parses the information and presents it in an easy-to-read overview that's invaluable to a busy business owner.

Transaction: In QuickBooks, a transaction type identifies what kind of transaction occurred, such as a customer transaction, bill payment or a bank transfer. When you submit a transaction, you type in a transaction code to represent it.

Vendor: A vendor is a person or business that supplies goods or services to a company. Another term for the vendor is the supplier. In many situations, a company presents the vendor with a purchase order stating the goods or services needed, the price, delivery date, and other terms.
