I have a supplier with no open invoices, but has a supplier credit, which has now been refunded, how do i now match the bank deposit to the supplier credit note?

the bank transactions are downloaded directly from the bank and i am currently showing a deposit for a supplier, i have raised a supplier credit for the same amount but when i try to match from the bank transaction screen it only brings up customer invoices and when i try to create a cheque on the supplier account it says "You cannot add a credit for a supplier without any open bills".  we won't be using this supplier again and i have no open bills.

please help!

This answer depends on the Control Account used for your suppliers, in most UK cases it's either Creditors or Accounts Payable, to save my typing I'll assume Creditors.

Allocate the bank deposit to the payee name and the correct bank account and date etc, under Account choose "Creditors" and enter the amount and No VAT as vat code (if this is being completed using downloaded bank transactions choose supplier name and account detail as Creditor)

If done correctly you should now see the deposit in the Supplier Account.

If you have auto match credits turned on this next step may be unnecessary.

I know it sounds strange but next to the deposit there will be an option to "Make Payment", click this, QBO should automatically bring the credit to the bottom of the cheque payment screen and total payment should be £0, and both deposit and credit should have a check mark and be paid off in full.

Please could I ask for help in this matter. Im getting the same pop-up "you cannot add a credit for a supplier without any open bills'. Ive used "Trade Creditors' as the control account.  I've entered the Supplier Credit. Deposit is in the supplier account. But still have an entry in the Trade Creditors. How do I get passed the pop-up, & match the cheque against the credit?

I have a supplier with no open invoices, but has a supplier credit, which has now been refunded, how do i now match the bank deposit to the supplier credit note?

Hi,

 

I have tried following the steps but I have invoices to match and then a credit. So on the bank feeds I have matched the invoices & then 'resolved difference' putting this to the supplier, creditors, no VAT.

When I look at the supplier account there is the bank deposit there but no 'make payment' button. 

Any ideas?

Hello Charlotte_DRH

 

In the instance that you have no bills on the account and no make payment button you can create a dummy bill in order to be able to have access to this option.

 

If you create a bill for the same supplier,make it for a penny,just so it is more clear it is a dummy bill(it will be deleted in a later step)filling in  date and VAT and use the save button(not the save and close).

 

You will then see a make payment in the top right if you click on that you should see the dummy invoice ticked as well as your deposit and the credit note.If you make sure the credit note and deposit are ticked and then untick the dummy invoice and save and close.

Then it is just a case of clicking into the 1penny bill you have created and going to more on the bottom black banner and then delete

Hi, I followed this process; however after deleting the dummy bill I'm left with £0.01 overdue on the Supplier account. How do I remedy this?

 

Thanks

Thanks for checking this out, Robert Nisbet.

 

One possible reason why you're left with a 0.01 overdue on your Supplier account is that, the amount from the dummy bill created remained after deleting the bill. To fix this, just open the Bill Payment and manually change the amount to zero.

 

I'll be your guide on how to achieve this.

 

  1. Go to Expenses on your left menu and choose the Expenses tab.
  2. Locate the Bill Payment.
  3. From the amount field, manually change it to 0.
  4. Click Save and close.

After performing the above steps, there should no longer be an overdue on your Supplier account.

 

If you need further assistance or follow-up questions, just leave me a reply below and I'll be sure to get back to you. Take care and have a good one.

Hi.

 

The Amount already shows zero.  In the deposit, the Original Amount is £176.61, and the Open Balance is £176.61, however the Payment is £176.60.  Whenever I try to edit anything and Save, it asks for an account for the transaction in the Bank/Credit account box.  So I cannot save any changes I make.

Thank you for getting back to us here on the Community page, @Robert Nisbet.

 

Yes, you have to select a bank account from the section so you'll be able to successfully record the changes. Then, delete the dummy bill to zero out the balance as suggested above.

 

If the problem continues, I suggest deleting and recreating the entries.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions. I'm a few clicks away to help. Have a good day!

I have a supplier with no open invoices, but has a supplier credit, which has now been refunded, how do i now match the bank deposit to the supplier credit note?

Hi

 

I have a similar problem.  

Supplier credit has been entered on QB, direct bank feed is showing equivalent amount, but how to match the two?  I have followed the guidance on creating a deposit, but when I go to enter a cheque I receive the message about not having any open invoices.  I have tried creating a 0.01 bill to then and followed the instructions, but all that shows when I go to 'make payment' is the supplier credit and the 0.01 bill - no deposit.  I can't then match if I untick the 0.01 bill.

Can anybody advise please?

 

Thanks

Hello SP24, The deposit should show as long as you have selected creditors in the account section in add funds to this deposit and selected the supplier in the payee. The only reason usually if you have done this why it may not is if you have more than one creditors chart of account( for example if you moved from desktop QuickBooks and it has moved the multiple creditor accounts) if you have one than one if you can make sure it is pointing to the default creditors account. If you need any further help on this just reply back here and we'd be happy to assist further.-Emma

I have a supplier with no open invoices, but has a supplier credit, which has now been refunded, how do i now match the bank deposit to the supplier credit note?

Thanks for the help, had a supplier credit in Mar 2023 and later the supplier did a deposit into bank account. Everything worked - created a deposit and it popped up under suppliers, create a bill with 0.01, then using "bill payment" selected the deposit and then the credit and it offset correctly. Subsequently deleted the bill with 0.01. Unfortunately then encounter the problem of "overdue" with 0.01 even though "open" is 0.00.

Thank you for clearly stating your situation, shunhe. I understand the challenges you're facing with discrepancies and overdue balances appearing in the QuickBooks Vendor bill accounts.

 

In QuickBooks Online, when you delete a bill with a small amount like 0.01, it can sometimes lead to the issue of overdue status even though the open amount is 0.00. 

 

To address this issue, instead of deleting the bill with 0.01, recreate it with the same details and then apply the payment to it. 

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Select + New.
  2. Select Bill.
  3. From the Supplier ▼ dropdown, select a supplier.
  4. From the Terms ▼ dropdown, select the bill's terms. This is when your supplier expects to be paid.
  5. Enter the Bill dateDue date, and Bill no. as they're recorded on the bill.
  6. Enter the bill details in the Category details section. From the Category dropdown, select the expense account you use to track expense transactions. Then enter a description. 
  7. Enter the Amount and tax.
  8. If you plan to bill a customer for the expense, select the Billable checkbox and enter their name in the Customer field.
  9. When you're done, select Save and Close.

 

Either way, if you have a credit memo from the supplier, you can apply it to the bill before deleting it. It can help ensure that the system properly accounts for the transaction.

 

If the issue persists, contact our QuickBooks Online support team as they can also provide specific guidance for resolving this issue. They may have insights into how to handle the situation within the software.

Thanks for the quick reply. 

 

Unfortunately this was the bill transaction of $0.01 which was created to work around the supplier credit and then offset with supplier deposit issue. It was created in order to be able to use the "bill payment" and then deleted since it's actually used as a "dummy" transaction. Hence there will not be any payment applied to this $0.01 and i can't recreate it and then apply a payment to it.

Hello there, @shunhe_pl.

 

I understand how important it is to record supplier credit and bill properly in QuickBooks Online. Rest assured I'm here to help you resolve this. The deletion of the bill transaction caused the overdue to exist. To fix this, you can create a journal entry to write off the balance or set up a clearing account to move money from one account to another.

 

It's important to ask for guidance from your accountant to maintain accurate financial records in your QuickBooks Online account.

Hi Elly Thanks for reaching out to us here on the Community. Is the credit that you received from the supplier to be used against a future bill or does it relate to a refund for a previous bill that has been paid?
