Re: Community Question: Duplicate Name Limit - How to Create Accounts for Vendors Who are Also Custo

I would disagree with the concept of adding or changing  anything to a vendor name.

 

You never know when the IRS is going to change something that affects the vendors and reporting.  Vendors you do not issue a 1099 to now, might need a 1099 in the future, or some other form.

 

Modify the customer name only. 

 

IMO the simplest is to add a period after the first or last name, hardly anyone notices it when it appears on an invoice or sales receipt or even a report
