how do you list start up costs of my business?


Glad to see you here, donnagardnerlmt.

I'm here to share the things that you need to know about QuickBooks Self-Employed.

Are you trying to categorize a deposit or the start-up costs of your business for your self-employed finances? If yes, you can have it as Personal Deposit. These are amounts from your personal funds that you'll add to your self-employed business funds. Check this Owner's Deposit article for more information about this. 

There are also a lot of categories you can choose from when sorting your transactions. See this category types for income and expenses article for more information. Also, if you're still new to QBSE, these topics can help you get going:

That's it. Let me know if you mean something else or have follow-up questions about categorizing your transactions in QBSE by leaving a comment below. I'm always here to help. Have a great rest of the day.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
