QB Issue Resolution:

I’m not sure how I’m to record the purchase. Write Check?

I’m using Premier Desktop

I’m sorry, could you go through it step by step.

I’d really appreciate it

My apologies, I am so used to these questions being for QBO that I overlooked your desktop tag


bring up write checks on the cash type bank account

leave the pay to blank

On the expense tab-

line one – the expense account for what you bought and the amount

line two –¬† owner equity investment and the same number as a negative

save the zero dollar expense


For a company taxed as a sole proprietor (schedule C) or partnership (form 1065), I recommend you have the following for owner/partner equity accounts  (one set for each partner if a partnership)

[name] Equity (do not post to this account it is a summing account)
>> Equity
>> Equity Drawing – you record value you take from the business here
>> Equity Investment – record value you put into the business here
