A common question I receive from clients is how they should be recording their loans in QuickBooks. I often see clients set up their loans the wrong way. They will sometimes appear on a report where they shouldn’t be, which can throw off any tax planning the client is trying to do. I know clients are trying their best and working hard to keep up with their bookkeeping, but every month when they record their loan payments, they know they are not doing it correctly, and it lowers their confidence when it comes to relying on their financial statements to make sound business decisions. In today’s podcast episode, I’m covering all the steps you should take when you have a loan in QuickBooks. Once you have this process in place, it really makes recording your transactions easy, and you’ll gain the confidence you need so that you can start relying on your financial statements again. Whether you are starting a business or side hustle, you’re a self-employed individual, a solopreneur, entrepreneur, mompreneur, freelancer, small business owner, a remote, virtual, online, or in-house bookkeeper, or a virtual assistant or VA; most businesses will have a loan at some point in time, and knowing how you should be recording all the transactions involved with your loan will help you create accurate financial reports that you can use not only in your business but for filing your tax return as well. These tips are essential whether you are using a computerized software system like QuickBooks, Xero, Wave, FreshBooks, or HoneyBooks for your business finances; or doing your bookkeeping manually with an Excel spreadsheet or even a Google Document…
