Concurrent Roles

Vendor and a customer role is defined differently in QuickBooks. Customers are linked with the accounts receivable and sales receipts whereas vendors are linked with the purchase made by you and the accounts payable. In case the company and customers are with other vendor and customer then two accounts should be maintained by you, one as the customer and other one as vendor.

It has to be done because vendor and customer can’t have the same names exactly. Customer record cannot be combined with the vendor record or you cannot convert the vendor record or to the customer record or the customer record to the vendor record.
