Sales receipts or Credt Memo ?

If I have a client that I am covering part of his transaction, do I issue a CM or add as a negative sales receipt ?

For Example, if I am paying for a client house to be painted as part of my serivce, do I add the painting cost as a CM ?

You can not enter a negative sale, sales receipt or invoice

Thanks Rustler,

And to pay these invoices to the vendors, create a new bill ?

Allow me to jump into this thread, skhudari.


billable expense is an expense that you have incurred on behalf of your client/customer for performing work, services, supplies. Billable expenses are reimbursable from your customer simply by billing them the incurred expenses when you send them an invoice.


Yes, you're correct. You can create a new bill and make this billable to your customer. I've attached a screenshot for your visual guide.



In case it's time to pay the bill, please read this article for more information: Enter And Pay Bills.


Please let us know if you need further assistance. I'd be glad to help.
