Purchase Ledger - Posting Corrections

Modified on Mon, 16 Oct 2023 at 03:24 PM

If there is a payment sitting on the Purchase Ledger Account that isn't required - for example, the payment was accidentally processed twice, you can reverse these by doing the following: 

Purchase Ledger

Post a Purchase Ledger Invoice for the opposite amount of the figure that you are wanting to reverse. 

The system will automatically calculate the VAT - zero the VAT calculation, no VAT is required. 

Select the required nominal code - so if it went to the cash book, then you would enter nominal code 

Post the invoice. 

Go into post Payment - search for the required account and on the transactions that display double click the invoice you just created. This will match against the unallocated payment. Click Confirm to process the payment. 

The invoice and payment will clear off the account overnight.


Users should not reverse any batch via the nominal that has been posted to the sales or purchase ledger as this will create an imbalance in the reconcile.
