I have an issue that is plaguing my accounting for an ongoing client. It's simple in theory:
- A client paid both an invoice and a reimbursement in one check (5000 for an invoice, 250 for a reimbursable expense)
- I've split the banking entry (5250 total) into the two parts. 1. 250 going to reimbursables and 2. 5000 going to accounts receivable under the Client.
My issue is I cannot directly link the existing invoice of $5000 to the split transaction. It exists as a lingering credit to that client causing havoc whenever a new invoice is created. That total is applied to the new invoice.
