I’m not sure I understand exactly what you did. But the way to handle a fixed asset purchase is to first create the asset as per the Guide at http://guides.manager.io/businesses/fixed-assets/acquisitions. This has no effect on financials. It is like creating a new customer.
Next, record the purchase. Since you used your own money, you were correct to create an expense claim. And you properly allocated the claim to
Fixed Assets and the particular asset. Now the item is on your books at its cost.
It seems your trouble came with reimbursing yourself. You should Spend Money from the company bank account, allocating the payment to
Expense claims. There should be no involvement with any expense account, whether wages or anything else. The reimbursement actually has nothing to do with the fixed asset or with wage expenses. It is merely satisfying your company’s liability to you for advancing it the money to buy the asset.
The fixed asset purchase was not an expense from an accounting perspective, but a capital outlay that must be recovered through depreciation. The depreciation during each accounting period will be what you record as an expense. You will do this in the
Fixed Assets tab by clicking on the Accumulated Depreciation balance for the asset and then New Depreciation Entry, as at http://guides.manager.io/businesses/fixed-assets/depreciaton. Manager will then allocate that period’s depreciation to the depreciation expense account.
The fact that your reimbursement ended up in Suspense means you made an unbalanced entry. That means debits did not equal credits. Without seeing more detail, I cannot tell which transaction it was. It might even have been that you neglected to specify the individual asset within the
Fixed Assets account. Unless it knows that, Manager can’t finish allocating the transaction to the right subaccount.
