GL Distribution button...

The two common methods for writing off small balances are:

  1. Use a Cash Receipt Code with the AR/GL flag set to "Both." Enter a check# such as "WRTOFF" with a zero dollar amount.  Credit the desired amount as if it were a payment, then select "GL Distribution" and enter the same amount in a miscellaneous over/short or other GL account.

  2. Set up a Cash Receipt Code with the "Deposit Amt and Adjustments" and "Discount" checkboxes both unmarked. This eliminates the entry of a dollar amount and forces the user to distribute the write-off to an appropriate account rather than the default discount account.
