CREDIT CARD TRANSACTIONS PROBLEM

Recommended Posts

I am a new UK user moving from MS Money. When I enter a "purchase" on a Checking account, the transaction reduces my balance by the amount correctly, however when I enter a "purchase" on a credit card account in the same way, it is shown as crediting my account. I have found that entering the amount as a negative value ( prefix with a - sign)  corrects this problem, otherwise credit card balances would show as assets not liabilities. The transaction amount is shown under the "Charge" column. Is this how it is supposed to work or am I missing something.

Thanks

Hi Nigel, MoneyLine processes the transactions on your Credit account as-is. This means that if you enter the starting balance as $100 and then you enter a purchase of $50, this will increase the Credit amount to $150 as what is increasing is your credit and not decreasing your cash.  When you purchase with a credit account you are not using your cash, rather you are increasing your credit amount.
