1) Use the Purchase Journal, and debit the relevant expense account.

2) Yes.

Thanks Ray, can I create a journal voucher without a partner ? some expenses might only appear once. TQ

No you can't. If you tried you would discover this for yourself. If you don't have a Supplier, you won't be able to create a Supplier Payment. You can have a generic Supplier 'Unnamed'.

Great. This posts answered one of my questions. So, considering Ray's last example, to be abble to see a report of the account moves for bank and cash, we can use Chart of Accounts (ledger for the bank and cash accounts)? Thank you.
