Recording sale of domain name

This week I completed the sale of a domain name through a broker service and today I received the payout (equal to sale price minus broker fee minus transaction fee) via ACH. While on the "Bank transactions" screen I see I could reconcile simply by categorizing as "Sales" but is there a more appropriate way to record the disposition of such an asset?

Also, please forgive me if this already has been asked and answered. I searched before asking and the closest discussion I found was about the purchase of a domain name.

Recording sale of domain name

You're on the right track, immarkbernhardt


All you need to do is categorize the ACH transaction on your Banking page. To know what specific category, I recommend consulting your accountant for specific instructions.

Another way of recording the sale of the domain name is to set up your assets. Then, create a journal entry to track your assets and their depreciation.
