Hello,

Company A did not have a credit card yet. Company B did. Company A transferred monies to Company B so B could pay some of A's bills requiring a credit card. How should the following transactions be recorded in both companies? 1. Monies out of A. 2. Monies in to B. 3. Bills paid by B.

Thanks much!

I think # 2 should read "Co A uses credit card to charge $80 supplies and tells Co B"

Then add a third:

3. Co B pays $80 Credit Card

Books of CO A
No entry needed

Books of CO B
DR Credit Card payable $80
CR Cash $80

But the first statement is that "Co A does not have a credit card yet" so how can A use a credit card? B uses the credit card for A

You are right. #2 should be "B uses the credit card to charge $80 supplies for A".

I was thinking that A would use B's card to buy the supplies which is what we do in my office - my office manager uses my card to buy the supplies for the company when we need to use a credit card and she tells me about it, rather than have me use my card to buy the supplies.
