QB Issue Resolution:

You can create 3 subcategories of Meals and Entertainment if you wish. Fully deductible, half deductible, not deductible. Post only in the 3 subs, the top level is a summing account. All your business meals are generally 100% reportable on a P&L, it is just the tax return where it differs. Most tax accounting software will do the calculations based on the individual totals entered.

Or you can use just the one M&E, keeping track of different types in a separate spreadsheet or notes.
