Split Transaction with Different Dates
Some of my budget items are prepaid. For Example: Buying a yearly software subscription. I would like to split this one-time transaction into 12 monthly transactions so that I can have a consistent monthly budget. However, when I go to split a transaction I can only select one date. Is there a way to account for this in YNAB?
Hi Powder Blue Welder !
There isn't a way to split a transaction among different dates. Instead, you'll want to save up for that transaction in different months so that the full amount is available when you need it - like Satcook mentioned. Take a look at the Goals feature - the Category Balance by Date option will let you enter the amount you need to save and when you need it by, then YNAB will tell you how much to save each month to save the total needed. :)Reply
