Tony, you cannot say "the $2,000": you can say $2,000 or an/the amount of $2,000.

It's unclear what you want to say. Amounts can be charged to, or deducted from a loan. If you provide more context, we might be able to help you. One thing is clear: both record to and record against sound wrong in that sentence.

Thanks Gustavo, let me put into another context or example. But first of all let me clarify: The example below is referring to recording a transaction in accounting software. When you record something, it will be debited or credited to a ledger.

So, for example:

When you purchase something for business purposes, the amount you incurred should be recorded against/to "X" ledger, instead of "Y" ledger.

In your new example above:

I'd use "in" (amounts are recorded in books of account), so that example is different from the original one.

I'd say that an amount can be credited to, or debited from, a loan, or — if you refer to the accounting entry — recorded as credited to/debited from a loan.
