QB Issue Resolution:

I think this is what you are asking:

Loan Payable 4,000 <== allows you to track the entire debt balance

Now you enter an invoice for the 2000 as Income to you, which is what this person is paying to you.

Or, you are tracking your Share of the debt, only; so your split on the banking entry is:

Loan Payable 2,000

Other Asset 2,000

= the total you paid out

And that other person pays you and a deposit is against Other Asset.

It all starts with Who owes, is who should be tracking debt balance for the activities.
