Any tips on the best way to do this for? I tried adding it as a bonus to my salary but could not figure out the journal entry to do this properly.
It would be important to know what type of entity is your business and confirm you are talking about a loan you owe the business.
If you are a sole proprietor, single member LLC, or partnership then you can't pay yourself a salary or bonus. The amount should be closed out to drawings. Debit Drawings and credit shareholder loan.
If you are an S-Corp, then you can declare a bonus, however, if you are not running a payroll this could present a problem in that payroll taxes are not being paid in. If you are running payroll then declare the amount in salary. Debit Salary - Officer and credit shareholder loan.
If you are an S-Corp you could declare the loan as a distribution. Debit shareholder distributions and credit loan shareholder.
Good to know, thank you @Mikeg!
