TIP - Recording a Rebate or Refund from a Vendor

Let's say you buy enough office supplies to get a $100.00 cash reward. The vendor sends you a $100.00 check. You could create a deposit in the Bank Rec module, but then you wouldn't have a record of your good fortune with the vendor.
  • Step 1: To record this $100.00 check and keep it linked to the vendor, use the Document Type Return in Payables Transaction Entry.
  • Step 2: Put the amount of the refund in the Returns field and in the Check field. When you post the transaction, you will have evidence of it in the vendor record and the check will be waiting for you to deposit in the check register.
  • Step 3: The $100.00 check is waiting to be deposited.
