Reimburse an employee for paying a business expense out of personal funds

cash back employee

reimburse employee

Follow the appropriate procedure to reimburse an employee who paid for a business expense out of his or her personal funds.

Note: If the purchase was for a small amount of money, you can reimburse the employee from your petty cash box, then record the petty cash expense.

  • I want to defer payment

    1. Go to the Lists menu and click Chart of Accounts. Open the Chart of Accounts

    2. Double-click the Other Current Liability account that you use to track reimbursements owed to employees to open the account register.

      What do I do if I don't have an account for reimbursements?

    3. In the Payee column, enter the employee's name.

    4. In the Increase column, enter the amount owed to the employee and then press Tab to move to the next line.
