Reverse Charges
Previous  Top  Next

When entering transactions, there will be special situations in which it will not be obvious what to do. This situation could arise when an account has been overcharged or charged in error and you need to "reverse charges" to rectify the error. The obvious way to handle this is to go to Accounts / Transactions and double click the entry and edit the charges. But you cannot edit the transaction if the transaction has already been "closed out". Now you must enter a new transaction that states "reverse charges" or "credit for overcharge" and enter an amount in the credits column. But the bank deposit will not balance with the Daily Report because there was no "check" for the credit. The way around this is to post the "credit" in the charges column with a minus sign in front of it. Then it really does meet the definition of "reverse charges" and will not affect the bank deposit calculation on the Daily Report.
