What do the "Transfer" categories mean? (Transfer In / Transfer Out)

GoDaddy Bookkeeping uses the "Transfer In" and “Transfer Out” categories to represent non-business transactions that do not affect your Profit & Loss.  The most common examples are transferring money between your PayPal account and your bank account.  While this won’t affect your business P&L, you still want to keep track of these transactions.

There are a couple other Non-Business categories that will keep a transaction from affecting your Profit & Loss:
