My company has a few accounts. We often transfer funds between accounts. However, those funds will have to be paid back to each account from which it came from; aka loans between accounts. Do I record the transactions as just a transfer or should I be creating a separate loan account? If so, can you please guide me through that?
Hi there, @sw1222. I've got some information that will help you record these transfers.
Yes, you can record the transactions as transfers. Then, you can add the reason for the activity in the Memo field.
If your company borrowed something from other parties, you can refer to these articles on how to record them:

I'd also like to ask what report you'll be running? Bank transactions that tagged as "Transfers" when running account register or balance sheet reports.
If you're referring to the Memo field, you can customize the report and add the Memo/Description column. Just click the Customize button and check the box for Memo/Description under the Rows/Columns section.
You can check out this article for more details: Customize Reports in QuickBooks Online.
I would also recommend reaching out to your accountant if you should be categorizing or tagging them as transfers.
