QB Issue Resolution:

When the business borrows money, from you or anyone, that is a business liability, a debt it owes.

the bank where you deposit the borrowed money, gets a debit to show the increase in asset value (more money), the offset is a credit to the liability account.

Later when you pay back the loan, money out of the bank is a credit, and the offset is a debit to the liability account, which lowers the amount still due out
