Converting Trade Payables to Financed Leases

I use bill.com to enter invoices that integrates with Quickbooks.   For this company at certain times, outstanding trade payables are wrapped into leases.   For example, I may have 50 invoices for 100,000 that are converted to a Lease to be paid off in 24 installments @ $4166 per month.

 

What is the best way to account for this in QBO?  We do a periodic inventory so the payables are booked to COGS initially.  The main goal would be to relieve the payables and expense easily and establish the lease payable.

 

Thanks!

Converting Trade Payables to Financed Leases

Just because the bill is being changed to a financed lease, does not change the expense.

There are several ways to do this but to me this is the easiest


create a cash type bank account and pay all bills that are being financed

create the long term liability account for the lease
journal entry, debit the cash type bank account for the total, credit the long term lease liability account

set the newly created cash type bank account to inactive in the chart of accounts
