QB Issue Resolution:

One of two ways to do it

 

1. you pay the expense using a liability account, the company owes you for the expense, then the payroll item posts to that liability account zeroing it out

 

or

 

2.  As you said, do not post the expense and let the payroll reimbursement post to the expense account.

Resolution for Issue 'I reimburse an employee (myself) in the payroll system. That part is easy, I put in the amount in the reimbursement box and I get paid for it on the paycheck. I also put those transaction details as an expense. The problem is, in my profit-loss report, expenses are showing up as expense and the reimbursement is showing as expense, causing these transaction to be accounted for twice. The way I’ve been doing to prevent this is to not put in any expenses in quickbooks, but then I don’t know the details of the reimbursements I’m paying. What is the right accounting to do here?' available: Yes (Solved).
