You can create a dummy (credit card) account and use it to record the expenses. Allow me to walk you through the steps on how to do it:

  1. Select Accounting in the left navigation menu.
  2. Click New.
  3. From the Account Type drop-down menu, choose Credit Card.
    – You don’t need to specify the Detail Type since it’ll be entered as Credit Card by default.
  4. Name the account.
  5. Click Save and Close.

  1. Click the Plus (+) icon.
  2. Select Expense.
  3. Fill in the appropriate details on the following fields:
