Adjust Prepayment Account


Adjust a Customer Prepayment account against a user selected GL account.

This is a rare circumstance, and as far as we know would only be used to correct data entry without affecting the bank balance.
The customer prepaid balance is wrong.

Warning: Uses the Programmer’s window. High level access and knowledge of accounting is required.

Determine if the prepayment has been assigned to an order. If so, the order will need to be edited using the Programmer’s window.

On the customer window, make note of the Customer Code
Customer window > A/R TRX > Prepayments button
Note whether the adjusting transaction needs to be a Debit or a Credit to offset the amount in question.
