Make your expense accounts in your chart of accounts, use those from write checks, enter bills or enter credit card charges to track your expenses.

You need TWO expense accounts.


"Meals and Entertainment" is for the entries that will be reported on your tax form as subject to the 50% limitation.


Coffee and food at the office (supplies expense) and meals at the office for the convenience of the employer (such as making everyone stay and work through lunch) or meals for/with employees (such as an annual review dinner or a Company dinner) are not subject to the 50% limitation, so put them in a different expense account.

What other account could I use for the meals that are not deductible?
