How do I record a payment or receipt when there is no invoice required?
When you need to receive or make a payment that does not require an invoice you can enter these details as Other Payment or Other Receipt.
It is not uncommon to receive payments or make payments which do not require the generation of an invoice or your supplier may not send you one. For example, you may buy stationery from a one-off supplier, make payment on the day, and obtain a receipt but no invoice. The Other Payment or Other Receipt option allows you to enter the transaction without a supplier or customer, or any payment terms.
To do this:
- 1. Go to Banking and click the relevant bank account.
- 2. Click New Entry and from the drop-down list click Purchase / Payment or Sale / Receipt.
- 3. Click the Other Payment or Other Receipt tab and add any details.
- 4. Click Save.
