50% Business Expense

How do I enter an expense in Quicken so that 50% of the expense gets charged to my business, and 50% as a personal expense?

For example, I bought a new iPhone last year, that I use for business and personal, paid for on Credit Card. Do I enter half the cost to Business expense in a split transaction? Or do I need to bill the business for 1/2 the cost? If either will work, what is considered the best way?

    A split transaction is, indeed, the way to go.  That way you can use a category, with a Business tax line associated, for part of the bill and a category, with no tax line for the personal portion
