How to catagorize purchase


I have purchased some small scale toy people that I will use in my classes to teach lighting and Macro photography.
Could anyone advise me on what category I need to account for them.



If they are small value you can just use other direct cost.
Counter question as keen photographer (hobbyist) my self, which micro lens If i may ask?


I have a Sigma 105mm F2.8


Is Canon 100mm F2.8 any good?


Just getting in to trying this software, cant find Other in the categories drop down…
Are you Canon, Nikon or Mirrorless?


yes, the glass is better than the Sigma


Canon M50

Look for Direct Expenses category under Reports>Chart of Accounts.

You can always create new codes if you like


Got it, thank you.

Do you use Photoshop or Lightroom?


none, just fast stone for bit of edit


Well if you ever do, look me up I an an Adobe Certified Instructor and teach Photoshop and Lightroom as well as photography.



Thanks for your help and swift reply, I have made a new category called ‘Teaching Materials’.
