This is due to selecting Journal Entries exporting against an A/P account for reimbursable expenses and also having users set up as employees in QuickBooks Online. To correct this, simply change the export configuration to another account or set up your employees as Vendors in QuickBooks Online.

You can also turn on "Automatically Create Vendors" in your QuickBooks Online configuration to prevent having to set up your employees as vendors manually.
