A credit is a credit and will reflect in the total owing. However your A/P reports should show the total owing (without the credit) if you have picked the correct dates. If however you have applied the credit then it will probably reflect on the payable it is applied to ie quite likely in the previous month.

Don't apply credits until you need to.

Hi Kelly,

What report are you looking at? Are you looking at an Accrual or Cash basis?

Transactions should appear based on the date of the transaction.

Kind regards,

Hi Sally

Thank you so much for replying. We use the accrual system

I enter the date of the credit as the date on the actual credit and i cannot figure out why the totals are changed and reflect in the previous month.

I am hoping that you can help

Many Thanks

Kelly

I am sure in older versions (maybe 10 years ago) there was a way to have a due date on the credits like the bills which would then age them correctly in aging summary reports.  I have not found this in the current versions & there is no template to alter.
