Chapter 17. Recording Liabilities > Recording Loan Payments

Recording Loan Payments

When you make payments on your loan, part of the payment reduces the loan balance and part is expensed as interest. Write a check to the lender, noting both parts of the payment. See the accompanying text for information on calculating interest.

Record a Loan Payment

Select Write Checks from the Banking menu.

Verify the account from which the payment will be drawn.

Enter the payee.

Enter the date of the payment.

Enter the amount of the payment.

Enter the loan liability account.

Enter the amount of the payment that will reduce the loan balance.

Enter the expense account where you record interest paid by your company.

Verify the amount that QuickBooks calculated for interest (the difference between the check total and the amount in step 7).

Select whether this is to be an online payment or if a check is to be printed.

Save the check.
