settlement liability

Hello,     The company I work for has a large settlement with an Ex-employee for funds they paid out of pocket for years ago on a variety of company bills.  This will be paid to the Ex-employee over a number of months.  I assume this should be put against accrued earnings. and I will need to enter this as a notes payable ?

Thanks for posting your concern in the Community, @ltpbuilders.

Yes, you can put the figure against accrued earnings and enter it as notes payable. You can also reach out to your accountant for other options. They can share insights to ensure your books are accurate.

You definitely want to check with your CPA and/or attorney.  The payments can be either deductible, nondeductible or capitalized depending on the allocation of the settlement.
