I use QuickBooks and an accountant for my accounting. I only visit the accountant once a year. It has worked good so far. The one thing I have not figured is large purchases, such as equiptment. Currently I am writting off the entire amount as an expense. This throws off my P&L as it shows the entire purchase amount during that month. I know I am to depreciate equiptment over a period of time. The question is what do I list the purchase as and how do I determine a depreciation for each piece of equipt. How do you do yours? Please help.
