The register shows you all transactions that are linked to this balance sheet account. For example, if you enter a check or an invoice, QuickBooks lists it in the register.
Note: Income accounts, cost-of-goods-sold accounts, and expense accounts do not have registers.
What should I use registers for?
Registers are a great way to find transactions that you know are linked to a specific balance sheet—type account. To search for transactions, either scroll through the register or click the Go to button and enter specific criteria.
You can also enter transactions directly into the register. However, we don't recommend this unless you have a background in accounting.
