QB Issue Resolution:

Lets start with why you have Long Term Liability when it usually whould be Owner Contribution. If you are an LLC or Sole Proprietor then you never “loaned” money to your company, all you did was increase equity.


You must therefore be a C or S corporation (with yourself as an employee collecting what the IRS calls reasonable wage before any distributions)


Deposits can only be recorded to bank type accounts or Other Current Asset type accounts. So you can add a clearing bank account, record the deposit to it and then post a withdrawal to Shareholder Loan, which this would be. It is a two-step process.  Or you could transfer the money back into business checking from the clearing account


Company money that is misdirected into personal account would not be a company liability since that check amount would be owed back to the company, making it an asset.
