What category would i put Training under?

Thanks for visiting the Community, shaztimbrell.

When classifying your training, use the business expense category. Make sure it helps you improve the skills and knowledge used for the business (for example, refresher courses). This way, you can claim for allowable business expenses.


To add the entry:


  1. Tap the Transactions menu and then hit the Add transaction button.
  2. Enter the training details in the field boxes.
  3. Choose business expense for the Type.
  4. Click Save to keep the changes.

If you wish to learn more about the specific category, I suggest contacting our QBSE Care Team. One of our specialists can recommend which specific type to use for the transaction.

Here’s how:


  1. Tap the Assistant icon to open the QB Assistant window.
  2. From there, enter the issue in the Type something box.
  3. Hit the I still need a human button to display the support option.
  4. From there, choose Message an agent or Get a Callback.

For future reference, these resources provide an overview of the SA103F Categories. From there, you can select which one to use for your transactions.
