QB Issue Resolution:

Create an Asset account for “Used Cars” and book the vehicle purchases here (Balance Sheet).

The “reconditioning costs” of the vehicle are a “Cost of Goods Sold” Expense. You can create a sub-account to cost of goods sold specifically for these costs such as “Reconditioning – Used Cars”. You can also create a “Cost of Services Sold” account for your actual “Used Car Retail Sales” (fees related to buying the used car) expenses. If the vehicle is put into physical inventory (still an asset) and it declines in value month-over-month it should be written down to the current fair market value.
