How do I record a miscellaneous expense?

Use the Miscellaneous Expense dialog to record an expense associated with this security or account, but not directly related to the price of securities being purchased (such as broker's fees, mutual fund management fees, and so on). You can categorize this transaction.

  1. Open the account you want to use.
  2. Click Enter Transactions.
  3. In the Enter Transaction list, select Miscellaneous Expense.


Recording a transaction in Quicken does not execute a real-world trade, transfer, or other transaction. Contact your broker to execute trades or transfers, and then manually record the transactions in Quicken—better yet, download them directly from your participating financial institution.
