Subject: How to Write off an Unpaid Receivable Invoice or Balance
Last Modified: October 16, 2009
Applies to: Pro Gold i2 2.xx, 3.xx
Purpose: Accounts Receivable (invoicing) can be maintained and billed in Pro Gold. In certain situations, the company is left with invoices that will not be paid and need to be written off (such as when an agent leaves the company and has an outstanding invoice). The ideal way to handle these is to create a credit memo to write off the balance of the unpaid account because the credit memo books the expense write-off and there is a clear audit trail.
Procedure: Actions required to write-off and outstanding accounts receivable balances are explained below:
Step 1: Log into Pro Gold
Step 2: In the Receivables Tab, use the “Issue Credit Memo” icon to create a credit memo with the total balance the customer/agent owes
a. If there is more than one customer/agent that needs amounts written off, then create a separate credit memo for each customer/agent
b. For more information on how to use a credit memo, see Knowledge Base Article 4173
Step 3: Select the “Bad Debts” expense account as the Debit General Ledger Account on the credit memo
Step 4: Use the credit memo to pay off the invoices that are outstanding for the customer/agent.
