How to record a cash transaction - rent payment?



I need help recording a few transaction in QB on line.

My boss received $1000 in cash (rent payment for an apartment - he is a co-owner of the building - the building is owned by LLC). This transaction is not recorded in QB.

(He put the money in his pocket).

Latter on, he wrote a check in the amount of $1000 using his personal bank account to transfer money to LLC. This transaction is recorded in QB, the bank account in link to QB.

Please, I need advice how to recorded that he receiving the cash.

Which account should I credit, which account should I debit.


I will appreciate any suggestion.

Thank you

How to record a cash transaction - rent payment?

Start by recording the proper rent payment (in cash) from the tenant.  If you use Undeposited Funds, make a deposit to a dummy cash clearing account, then post a payment out from Petty Cash to this Member Draw account. His personal check back to company is Member Contribution or a reverse of the Draw. This is the proper workflow.


Or you could treat his personal check as the tenant payment

Thank you for you respond.

The way you suggested to record those transaction look the proper way.

I'm traying to avoid to record a member draw (Latter on on the 1065 Return of Partner Income -schedule K-1, will show that my boss contributed more than the other member). I have separate QB on line for LLC and it won't match. His personal -member draw will be different from contribution on the LLC side.


You also suggested that I could treat his personal check as the tenant payment. I think in this case it will look like he is paying somebody's rent. 

Any different idea how to properly record those transaction?

I will appreciate any feedback.
