QuickBooks Home Finance Selling Non Business Personal Assets

This learn QuickBooks for home finance video class will show you how to record selling personal, non-business assets. You will almost never sell an old asset for the same amount that you purchased it for. If you receive more, you have a “gain” on the sale of the asset. If you sell for less that what you paid, you have a loss on the sale of the asset. Gains on sales of non-business assets should be recorded in an “other income” type of account that would not be part of operating income. Losses on sales of non-business assets should be recorded in “other expense” type of accounts and are also not part of the normal operating income. They will appear below operating net income in the profit and loss or income statement for that period of time. Gains on the sale of personal assets are taxable at a special rate called “capital gains”. Losses on the sale of personal assets are not deductible form adjusted gross income. To properly record these asset transactions, you must make a journal entry. Don’t’ forget to put the proper class for Taxable income and deductible expenses as part of the sales recorded in the journal entry.
