Bookkeeping for Non-Deductable Fines

In Canada, a parking fine, seat belt fine, towing fine,
overweight or over-length truck fine or other general fines are non-deductable. The company can expense it; however is unable to claim it as a business expense for tax purposes. It would be best to create a non- deductable fine account to post any fines to. This way the accountant can take the dollar amount off the profit or loss when doing the tax return at year end.
