Hi all,
How to record the refund from our insurance claim from insurance company on Reckon Account Hosted?
Thank you

    Typically I record a Sales receipt transaction, allocating the refund to 'Other Income' account or 'Insurance Recoveries' account - some clients will allocate the refund back to the expense account as a (negative) expense but that method does not properly comply with tax legislation, where the Gross income should be noted rather than Net income.
    Create a separate Item to use, called Insurance Recoveries, assigning the Item to 'Other Income' or 'Insurance Recoveries' account/s
