As you enter invoices and customer payments, QuickBooks tracks the
information to create summary statements that you can send to your customers.
Summary statements are like a mini-report of the charges and payments made on a
customer's account; you just review them, decide whether to add finance
charges, and then print them.
To print summary statements for your customers, go to the Customers
menu, choose Create Statements, and then select the
option you want.
Do not confuse summary statements with billing
A billing statement is a second method QuickBooks
provides for you to bill your customers (invoices are the other billing
method). You should choose whether to use invoices or billing statements and
use that method consistently.
