business credit cards transferred to personal

I currently own a sole proprietorship business and I’m making payments on a credit card with the business checking account. I do my bookkeeping in QuickBooks.

I’m planning on closing the business down in the near future which would include closing the business checking account as well.

At that point I would begin paying on the credit card with my personal checking account. Since the business is no longer making these payments, an entry should be made in the credit card account in QB to reflect this. What kind of transaction would I make in QuickBooks to show that the credit card balance to pay is now zero? Do I use the “Transfer funds to” field?

Thanks in advance for any answers.

You'll have to create a journal entry to record the business expense paid with personal funds. 

 

If you're using QuickBooks Online, here's how you can do it:

  1. Click the New or Plus sign (+) button.
  2. Select Journal entry.
  3. Fill in the necessary fields.
  4. Click Save and close.

If you're using the Desktop version, here's how:

  3. Fill in the necessary fields.
