How do I treat reimbursements for bookkeeping purposes in Quickbooks?

Client question:

If a client is reimbursing up for travel, do I run it the same—as an invoice, or is there a different way I should do that?  I am finding out what card my Dad put it on.  I guess that will determine if I need to cut Dad a check (if it’s on his personal card) or if the client reimbursing us is enough.

Answer:

Great question! First, you would need to reimburse the employee for the expense (make sure you get receipts). Second, if possible, invoice the client for the same amount if this is something that they have agreed to pay for.
