Journal for business expense paid with personal credit card


#1

I’d like to know the best way to handle a case where I pay for a business expense using a personal credit card. Here’s what I did:

  1. Create a fake bank account called “Cash Transfer” (for want of a better name).
  2. Enter the purchase which results in this journal:
  • DR Expense Account 100
  • CR Cash Transfer 100
  1. Then, to record the fact the business owes me a refund I did this journal:
  • DR Cash Transfer 100
  • CR Owner Liability 100

Ideally, I’d like to process the purchase and post directly to the liability instead of using a bank account like this.

Is there a better way?

Yes, enable tab called Expense claims and record all these expenses in this tab.
