Hi there, bjbowen00.

 

Thanks for dropping by the Community, I'm happy to help you this morning. What you're going to want to do is add these items as expenses then run your P&L report like normal. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Click the New (+) icon to bring up the transaction menu page. Under the category for Vendors, select Expense.
    undefined
  2. You will now see the Expense Window. Select a Payee for the expense. If it’s a new payee, you can enter their name in the field and click Add.
  3. Next step is to choose the account the money for this expense came from. 
  4. Next, enter the Payment date.
  5. After entering the date, enter the Payment method for this expense.
  6. Choose a category for this expense. Under Category, choose the account category from the chart of accounts. If it’s a new category of expense, you can always type in the name of the category in the Account field and click Add new.
  7.  To be more detailed with your purchase, you can add more information in the Description.
  8. You can also add notes in the Memo field for additional information. If you need to add more details regarding the expense.
  9. Enter the amount of the expense in the Amount field.
  10. Once you entered all the needed information in the field, Click Save and New to save this expense and start another one, or Save and Close if you’re done creating expenses.

You can also check out our guide on entering, editing, or deleting expenses in QuickBooks Online for your convenience. Now you're ready to run your P&L report. If you have any other questions, feel free to post them down below. Thank you for your time and I hope you have a lovely day.

I'm asking specifically for Home Offices expenses such as utilities, mortgage, and home insurance. I have them categorized as Home Office expenses, but they do not show up in the P&L report.

 

All other expenses show up perfectly. Absolutely none of the Home Offices expenses show up.

Hi there, bjbowen00.

 

Transactions that are categorized under Home office expenses will not show up in the Profit and Loss report. This includes Homeowner/rental insurance, Mortgage interest - home office, and Utilities - home office. 

 

They will only be reported under Home office deduction in your Tax Summary and Tax Details reports. Here's an article where you can see what are included in your financial report: Schedule C And Expense Categories In QuickBooks Self-Employed
