Not all categories on Invoice template

I make a monthly contribution to my pension from the company account. I have set up the supplier but the category for Pension Fund is not an option for the Purchase Invoice.

Why is this not there? I’m being forced to do a journal every month to put it to the correct place.

Because pension contributions are not a purchase.

If it’s a company pension then your payroll journal takes care of the expense element for the employer’s contribution and puts that plus the employee contribution as a liability on the pension fund, and then the actual payment to the pension company is just a “something not on the list” tag to the same nominal - not a purchase.

If you’re just using business money to pay into a private pension then that’s not a business expense, just tag it as director loan or drawings as appropriate.
