QB Issue Resolution:
Are you on Cash Accounting like most small businesses? If so it is January expense no matter how you look at it and splitting the check is pointless
If you are Accrual accounting then the expense for December (if you entered the bill prior to 12/31) was already properly recorded in December and you still do not have to split the check.
If you did not enter 2 bills but wrote check go back and enter 2 bills, use pay bills and assign the check.
