You have to make the Fixed Asset balance zero., and against that you create a Receivable.

Journal Entry:

Credit the full Original Cost of the vehicle that is in the books, to bring it to zero.

Debit the balance of accumulated depreciation for the vehicle, to bring it to zero.  (the difference is the Net Book value)

Debit a Loan Receivable account (current asset) with the amount you are selling the vehicle for.

Debit or credit the difference (sales price less NBV) to a P&L Other account "Gain/Loss on sale of Fixed Asset"

Monthly thereafter, when the employee pays, credit the Loan Receivable in the Bank Deposit form.

Hi there, @RQ.

 

You'll want to create a loan account in your chart of accounts. Here's how.

 

In your QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT):

  1. Go to the Lists menu then Chart of Accounts.
  2. Select the Account button below and click New.
  3. Choose Other Account Types and select either Other Current Asset if the loan will be repaid this year or Other Asset if it won't be paid this year. 
  4. Click Continue.

Here's an article you can read for more details: Create, edit, or delete account in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

In case you need to create a journal entry in your QBDT, you can check this article for guidance: Create a journal entry in QuickBooks Desktop.
