How to structure my wife's books.

My DW has started a home based consultancy. Some of the jobs she does, she travels interstate for a couple of days and 'consults'. She is reimbursed for all costs during that time as well as paid a fee. My question is, should I run the 'rebillable' costs through the P & L with an equal and opposite offset, or run it through the balance sheet as an asset to be claimed back? Any advice?

Its not an asset. Its a billable expense.

You are most welcome

So following that line through, post each rebillable item, line by line, accommodation, skybus, air ticket etc, but the recoup as a "whole" item. I understand the notion of rebillable (ie spend / recoup) but haven't used it in an accounting package before. In fact I haven't used accounting package much at all.
