QB Issue Resolution:

Assuming you paid for the bond, Create a current asset account called something like bond

write the check and use that account as the expense for the bond

when it is refunded to the bank account, do a deposit and use that same bond asset account as the source account for the deposit

this kind of thing is not an expense, you are holding money in reserve
