I've got you covered in recording a loan payment in QuickBooks Desktop. Let's get this recorded.
In QuickBooks Desktop, you can use journal entries to transfer amounts from one income or expense account to another or transfer amounts from an asset, liability, or equity account to an income or expense account.
You can follow the step-by-step process in making journal entry:
From the QuickBooks Company menu, choose Make General Journal Entries.
(Optional) In the Make General Journal Entries window, change the Date field.
The Entry No. should automatically populate. If not, type a number for your journal entries. QuickBooks Desktop will automatically number subsequent journal entries.
Enter the General Journal Entry details.
Enter or select the first account in your transaction. If you are using an A/R (accounts receivable) or A/P (accounts payable) account, the first account in the General Journal transaction should be the AR or AP account.
Enter the debit or credit amount for the account you selected in step a.
(Optional) Type a memo describing the transaction. This memo will appear on reports and will include the General Journal entry.
Enter or select the Customer, Vendor, Employee, or Other name associated with the transaction. This is required if you use A/R or A/P accounts.
(Optional) If you selected an Expense account along with a customer or job, you can make the amount billable to the customer by checking the Billable column.
(Optional) Assign a class to the amount.
Repeat steps 4a through 4e to enter distribution lines until the transaction reaches a zero balance. The total in the Debit column should be equal to the total in the Credit column.
