Question about reimbursed expenses


T

Tom Barry

I have a question about reimbursed expenses. My wife just recently go a job
that requires her to do a lot of traveling in her car. She tracks her
mileage and parking expenses and her company reimburses her for mileage and
parking. How do I track that in Quicken 2003? Do I enter these expenses
normally, ie (Auto:fuel, Auto:parking, Auto:Service, etc.) and then when the
expense check gets disbursed, do I then apply the check amounts as credits
to those categories (as a split)? Or is there a better way?

It's generally a good idea to search the archives before posting your
question, most subjects have been discussed here before. If the search
doesn't answer all your questions, then post them here.

Start at:

http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&group=alt.comp.software.f
inancial.quicken

(watch the wrap)

You can do a simple search from that screen, try "reimbursement".

You can also do an advanced search by clicking "Advanced Search" above the
search box on that page; that will allow you to filter on poster's names,
dates of posting, subject, etc.

Thank you John for your help. I tried to search my news group that I have
set up for my ISP and Outlook express, but I guess it does not go back that
far (Archives). Sorry for wasting your time, but Thank you. You have helped
me. I will bookmark this site in Explorer and will check archives first.

Thank you John for your help. I tried to search my news group that I have

To search the archives, instead of searching the ng as it is carried
on your ISP's news server, take your web browser to groups.google.com,
as mentioned above. That's Google's newsgroup archive, where they
keep EVERYTHING -- multiple year's worth. Makes it real hard for
people to deny saying something they said on a ng several years ago!
Lot's of search capabilities under advanced search.

But to answer your question, what you propose is essentially what I
do. Charge the expense to an appropriate catagory, then credit it
back to that catagory when re-imbursed. Mine's a bit simpler since I
don't incur any expenses that could be personal (car, etc.). All of
my re-imbursable business expenses are distinct to business travel, so
I have business expense catagories set up for them. But the
principle is the same.

As suggested by the other poster, please double check my
previous answer to you: the "archives" are at Google (at the URL
I posted), not at your ISP, and the archives go back for years
and years. A good discussion of the very question you raise in
this thread occurred in this group within the past month or so;
at Google search for "expenses" ... and if you use the "Advanced
Search", you can narrow the results to those that have occurred
this year which should give you several threads to read.
