Payment behalf of the client


Our company provide a student Visa services to international students. We have a problem how to add an account to this transactions.

For example: Students wire or deposit their tuition fee into our checking account and we will pay tuition fee on behalf them to some university in one or two week later.
I meant since some clients are not able to transfer money from abroad directly for a service in Canada, we get the money they provide to exchange companies and we pay the service fee to Canadian service providers on their behalf.

Since this is not considered our income (just payment behalf of the clients to other institutes), could you help to how to assign this transaction? how to add an account to chart of account? or ....

Please help us.
