Hey there, slwsolutionsllc.
The default expense account for the company-paid contribution is Payroll Expense. I'd still recommend reaching out to your accountant to make sure your payroll reports are accurate.
I'm adding this article for reference: Set up a payroll item for retirement benefits (401(K), Simple IRA, etc.).
I'll be around if you have any additional questions or concerns. Thanks.
