Does every single expense need a Payee? If I go on a biz trip to NYC and get a hotdog from a food truck that I'll never visit again, do I really need to create a Vendor for that? I know the Payee field is not required but I'm curious about best practices. Thanks!
That's a great question! The answer depends on how you want to keep your books. QuickBooks Online is capable of doing either way. I would really recommend talking to your accountant! If you don't have an accountant, we do have ProAdvisors that are certified in QuickBooks! To find a ProAdvisors near you, please go here!
Please let me know if you have any other questions!
I don’t believe every Expense should have a payee. As a business owner you are trying to show where the money went, you may have to go to a supermarket to get a package of printer paper because, Office Depot is out.
Or go to an automotive store to help you finish the task at hand… Whatever it takes to get the job done
