Hi,

How should the following two transactions in an S Corp's Wave account be categorized and/or handled?

Transaction #1: A $50 personal expense is mistakingly made with the business debit card

Transaction #2: In an effort to correct transaction #1, a $50 deposit is made to the business checking account from the owner's personal bank account

    HOSPM,
    I would classify both transactions under shareholder loan. They should net to zero.

    @Mikeg What account category would "shareholder loan" fall under on Wave's Chart of Accounts page?

    Under liabilities. By default Wave has a loans from owner. If not, you could set one up on the Chart of Accounts under liabilities.

    Your welcome. Keep me in mind if you're looking for someone to file the S-Corp. Have a great evening.
