We had a business account that was in the negative and was closed. How do I closed the account with a negative balance? They marked it as "Overdraft Write-Off" What type of entry should it be for me in Quickbooks?
Go to Solution.
use a journal entry
debit the account for the amount of the write off, credit Other Income
the overdraft, negative amount is a debt you owed, when debt is forgiven it is your income since you no longer have to pay it. (there are some rare exceptions to that with mortgages, etc)

Thank you. I mean we actually still owe it, even though it was written off to close the account. So I wasn't sure.
