Quicken & Other Budget/Accounting Software/Accounting Entries
1) The company pay to the “Car Park Company” of $1000 on behalf of the employees first every month, then 5 employees who took the car park will pay back the company individually to petty cash ($200 X 5persons). How to record this accounting entries?
2) Our company (company A) is a marketing office for our regulator company (Company B). Company A only do marketing and events (no income only expense). Company A’s only source of fund is from Company B. How to record the fund received from Company B for Company A’s operating expenses? Is it also considered as income?
1 a. when you write the check post to an Other current asset called "employee receivable
I would split that up into 5 split lines, same account
employee receivable Joe $200
employee receivable Mary $200
employee receivable Hank $200
and so on
b. when an employee pays $200 to petty cash
create a Journal entry
debit petty cash
credit employee receivable Joe, or Mary or Hank
QuickBooks has a Name field which you can post the names to.
Or you can set up 5 different chart of accounts.
I think having 5 different accounts might be better in the long run
so that you can easily print a report for an employee to show them the
history of their repayments should they get behind.
2. Since the company is a separate entity with a separate tax id, then the payments
would be considered income, and the expenses to create the marketing materials would
be the deduction against that income. If the plan is to not have taxable income, you
may want to REFUND any unspent balances at year end and then have them send a new payment
