This a quick article to explain how personally paid expenses work in Ember.

You can add personally paid expenses into Ember using the Expenses function. You can add multiple line items if you have multiple expenses to claim across different expense categories.

This will credit your directors loan account with the amount of expenses you have paid for personally. You can see this on the home page by going to money business owes, and you will see an amount showing as "Money owed to director".

You can then reimburse yourself these funds tax free when the business is in a viable position to do this. You should consider the cash flow implications of any withdrawal and the company's ability to meet future obligations.

If you decide to reimburse yourself, you then need to categorise this withdrawal as "Money owed to director".
