  • @MartinSlagle Did you ever find out how to 'attach the item to a liability account'? that's exactly the stage I'm now at in my consignment business and I don't know how to do this.
    Please let me know if you figured this out. THanks very much. Joy Hanson

  • 'Attach the item to a liability account'. What liability account? DO I need to create it? would it be the vendors name? is it different than the vendor account that was created in step 1?
    'Split between the liability account'. HOW? Where? 'and an income account'. WHICH income account? Do I need to create it?
    MORE DETAIL PLEASE!
