If expense claim payers did have a COA option then your monthly Journal wouldn’t be required

why not allow allocation to the Expense claims account. [/quote]
By having Partner expense claims going directly to the Capital accounts and Employee expense claims going directly to the Employee Clearing Account totally eliminates the need to re-allocate these types of Expense Claims later via Journals. Removing that additional step is a positive move.
No, I’m not advocating, returning to the position of where all Expense Claims must end up in the Expense Claim account and then having the requirement of Journals to re-allocate.
I was questioning with regards to the Partner Expense Claim the inability to offset a payment against an Expense Claim. If you review the Capital Reports above. The first report’s Expense Claim of 10 is a direct result of the Expense Claim shown above it. In attempting to pay 5 out of Petty Cash towards that Expense Claim there is currently no way that that payment can be used to contra that 10 balance as shown in the second Capital Report.
Therefore I’m advocating that the Capital account Expense Claim transaction be posted to a Capital sub-account like Drawing etc, so it can be fluid rather then fixed and un-adjustable.
