Quicken & Other Budget/Accounting Software/Refund



Invoice A - paid $5000.

Received a refund due to cancel of service $500 from the amount paid.

How do i record the refund of $500?

Refunds from vendors should be posted to the same account the original bill
was posted to.

Keep a log in excel of all deposits to the bank that were not for sales.
This would be helpful if your books are ever reviewed or audited.
