Manual Journal for Debtors and Creditors

Started by Mark Mullins in Feature Requests | Idea

It would be appreciated if someone could advise me why there is no function in Xero to post a manual journal to either the Debtors or Creditors ledgers.

I have a situation where a customer has paid an invoice twice. The second payment has been entered as an over-payment. I can't refund the over-payment as the customer has disappeared and can't be contacted.

I want to write this over-payment off to other income by way of manual journal.

Thanks in advance
You could write this off by adding a 'dummy' invoice to the sales ledger and then apply the overpayment to the invoice.
