How Do I Add Reimbursements to Personal Expenses for Oregon Compliance Reports?
If you have a reimbursement on a personal expense, Oregon requires this to be reported in a specific way. Per the guide, there should be two transactions on the report to reflect the reimbursement.
- Create the personal expense by adding an Accrued Expense with the Tag: Personal to the individual being reimbursed. For the specific expenses involved, add those as Splits.
- Add an Accrued Expense Payment to the Accrued Expense you just created.
A very important part of this process is adding the Tag: Personal to the original Accrued Expense. If this is not added, the reimbursement will not report correctly.
