I have had a payment from a customer in Sundry sales.

To clear the debt, I go to:

Bank - Payments etc.

The nominal code I use would be Sundry Debtors (1101), is that correct?


TIA:thumbup:

    If you have received a payment from a sales customer it is a receipt.

    I'm assuming you're using Sage by the nominal 1101 quoted, so go to Bank - receipt and post to Sundry Sales.

    BUT does the customer have a reference no. for their ledger? In which case you will go to bank > customer. Find the customer on the scroll down list and their outsanding invoices should come up. Allocate your receipt against the correct invoice.

    No, they do not have an account with us. It was a one off transaction.

    I'm trying to clear the mess left by the previous bookkeeper whilst trying to learn my new career, lol. Never a dull moment :001_smile:

    Sounds like fun!

    Ok so you've got an invoice posted to Sundry Sales?

    I'm taking this one step at a time!

    If you have an invoice, it must have been posted to a customer ledger - look for something like "cash sales" under the customers module. If you have a hard copy of the invoice it will be on there.
    Failing that, can you find the transaction in Sundry Sales - look under the nominals module? Make a note of the transaction number, then in financials "Find" that transaction. You should then be able to see the account it is allocated to. Bit convoluted, but it's all I can think of.
    Then go to bank, customer receipt and allocate to correct invoice.

    Must say you are doing well if this is your first job in accounts and you've been left to it, especially as you are having to sort someone else's mess as well!

    I think I've sorted it, the accounts show that it has been resolved, lol.

    I went into corrections and adjusted where the funds were supposed to go!

    It appears to have worked, unless someone can tell me otherwise? :001_rolleyes:
