Company #1 gives a check to Company #2 and
Company #2 then sends check out to rental company.
The same people own both company #1 and #2. How should I show the check deposited in company #2 on the chart of accounts?

answer does not address the question.
For business #1, which category type to list in the chart of accounts?

I believe any money given to another business when both businesses are owned by the same people would be considered a loan. So the check deposited in company #2 should be shown as:

Debit Bank
Credit Loan from Company #1
