I use QuickBooks. My boss paid a vendor invoice with a personal credit card which is also paid from the same bank account as the vendors. How do I post this to QuickBooks?

Persoal Credit Card Paid For Business Expense
by: Stephanie

Thank you for your question about how to record the payment of a business expense from a personal credit card in QuickBooks.

You can accomplish this by posting a journal entry. The journal entry should debit the expense account and credit Owners Contribution with a note in memo stating that it was paid from a personal account.

Credit Card Merchant Fees
by: Stephanie

Thank you for your question about credit card merchant fees.

Depending upon the kind of business you have or the kind of expenses you are paying for with the credit card, you can record credit card merchant fees either as a Cost of Goods Sold expense or as a subcategory interest expense.

Credit Cards

I am a new bookkeeper doing books for a new client that has not done any bookkeeping since she opened her business in April. This client received a business credit card and has it maxed out already. How is this entered into the business and what accounts do I use as it has to be paid off in payments?

Hello, thank you for your question. You will need to set up a credit card account in the chart of accounts.

Whenever an expense is charged through the credit card the expense account will be debited and the credit card account will be credited.

When you make payments towards the credit card you will credit the bank account and debit the credit card account.

You should also make sure to reconcile the credit card monthly just as you would do for the bank checking and savings accounts.

Regards!

Merchant Credit Card Fees

When I receive a credit card payment of, lets say, $100. But the merchant credit card company only deposits into my account $97.50 due to deducting $2.50 for their fees.

In QuickBooks I enter the income as $100 and make a deposit into my bank of $97.50. The $2.50 is money I possess but it is a liability to the merchant company until they deduct that amount at the end of the month from my bank account.

When I make the actual deposit in QuickBooks it does not allow me to hold back and put $2.50 in an Expense account. Only into a Liability account until it is paid. How can I book it in QuickBooks as an Expense?
