Owner paid a subcontractor with his own money. How to make sure Vendor shows up on 1099 and still able to write the reimburse check to the Company Owner

First, you will need to create a new dummy bank account. You will also need a due to the owner as a liability type account to use it for later reimbursement.

Step#1 Use bank deposit form (create + sign > other > bank deposit) to record contributed amount by the owner to pay a contractor. Account to show as due to the owner liability type account. See screenshot below.

Step#2 Use Expense form (create + sign > vendor > expense) to create contractor expense posted to appropriate expense account. See screenshot below.

Step#3 Use Check form (create + sign > vendor > check) to write the reimburse check to the Company Owner. See screenshot below.

In case there is no need to reimburse the owner (step#1), you will use a capital contributed account which would be an Owner’s Equity type account.
