How do I create an expense type?

Welcome to the Community, @impeccablecleani!


I’d be happy to help you create an expense type to the Chart of Accounts. The steps are simple and easy to follow. Let me guide you how:


  1. From the left panel, click Accounting, then Chart of Accounts.
  2. Click the New button at the top right.
  3. Select the Account Type (Expenses or Other Expenses).
  4. Select the Detail Type.
  5. Enter the Name.
  6. Click Save and Close.

For your future reference, you can read this article about creating a new account type: How to Create a New Parent Account or Sub-account.
