Recording Settlement of Sales Credits in MYOB Premier
When we discuss about settlement of sales credit or credit notes to your customers, we are dealing with those sales credits with amounts that are just part or portion of the sales invoice amount. There are more than one way to settle sales credits to your customers. Settlement may take form in the following:
- Applying the sales credit amount to one or more outstanding invoices from your customer;
- Making a payment refund to the customer and recording the transaction in your MYOB company file.
Applying Sales Credit Amount to Customer’s Outstanding Invoices If the sales credit is to be applied to your customer’s outstanding invoice, go to the Sales main command centre and click on the Sales Register. In the Sales Register window, go to the Returns & Credits tab and select the customer for which the credit will apply by indicating the Customer name in the field as per screenshot below:
Click on Record when you have entered the necessary information to save the new settlement transaction.
Take note that if you have set the Preferences to apply sales credit to oldest invoices, the sales credit amount will automatically in the Amount Applied column right beside the oldest invoice or invoices. Take note that the credit will not apply to a sales with Order status.
Recording Refund Payment for Your Customer’s Sales Credit
When you have to pay your customer for the sales credit, you can do so by going to the Sales Register feature of the Sales main command centre and click on the Returns & Credits tab.
In the Search by: field, indicate the name of the customer you wish to pay the credit for. If you want to display all credits for all customers, choose the All Customers option in this field.
