Regardless of how vigilant a business owner is or the nature of the security system in place, a business may still be robbed. Asset fraud must be reported in the accounting books for the asset’s loss and the resulting cost to be accurately represented. Theft expenses may include any costs incurred due to the theft, such as a door or lock repair. Reduce the asset account associated with the fraud on the balance sheet. If cash was stolen, for example, subtract the amount taken from the cash account’s balance.

Reduce the office equipment asset account by the total amount charged for the office equipment if it was stolen. Stolen inventory is a significant setback for any company that deals with physical goods. Products can be stolen at any point during the manufacturing and selling process. As a result, journal entries are required to document the stolen inventory.

How will I record money that was stolen in petty cash? Is it possible for me to build a new account?

QB Problem Resolution: You can build an expense account and call it “Business Fraud Loss” or whatever you want.

  • Select Accounting from the left panel menu and then the Chart of Accounts tab.
  • Pick Expenses as the Category Form when you click Fresh.
  • Select a detail kind. I recommend consulting an accountant if you’re uncertain about the information form.
  • Fill in the necessary detail.
  • Save and close the window.

Then, to record the stolen funds, establish an expense transaction.

  • Pick Expense from the Create menu (gear icon) in the upper-right corner.
  • Select the payee’s name (the one who stole the money).
  • As the affected bank account, choose the petty cash account.
  • Enter the spending account and the sum that was robbed.
  • Save the file.

You may build a new petty cash account by following the steps outlined above. Simply choose Bank as the Category Type and then the Information Type after you’ve entered all of the required details, press Save and Close.

What is asset disposal?

The elimination of a long-term asset from a company’s accounting records is known as asset disposal. It’s a fundamental idea since capital assets are required for a company’s success. Furthermore, keeping up to date and clean accounting records necessitates proper accounting of an asset’s disposal. A variety of factors may cause asset selling:

  • When an asset has reached the end of its useful life, it must be disposed of.
  • Property is sold when it is no longer usable or needed.
  • Owing to unexpected circumstances, an asset must be withdrawn from the accounts.
