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?
