How to code paper cups and plates

Hi,

 

Just wondering what I would code things like paper cups & plates, napkins, plastic/wooden cutlery etc to? Any ideas? I do the QB admin for a Community Centre and we use things like this for different events and activities that are held at the centre. I code food and drinks purchased for events to 'Purchases: food and beverages', but wasn't sure whether I should code the plates & cups etc somewhere else?

 

Many thanks,

Mel

Hi Mel, thanks for joining the QuickBooks Community :) - it's up to you how you wish to code this, you could create an additional account such as 'Miscellaneous: cutlery' to group these under, or you could include these in your existing 'Purchases: food and beverages' code. Generally, if you'd like deeper insight into the company's spending and for reporting purposes, it's best to split these into discrete categories.
