Deleting discount given


This query is regarding MYOB Essentials

 I need to delete  a payment to supplier which includes a discount given. When I delete the payment it tells me I have to delete the discount. I went to the general ledger to find the account - Discount Given - and there is nothing posted to that account. 

I also have another query regarding bank reconciliation. If I manually enter a payment for a supplier I seem to have two entries in the bank rec. One has automatically come through the bank feeds and the other I have manually entered. How can I delete the one that has automatically come through or do I just need to delete the manual entry.

Thanks for your help

Re: Deleting discount given

Hi @deb_accounts


To delete a discount given that has been added to a supplier payment go to the relevant Bill (Purchases>>Bills and navigate to the required Bill). Once you have that Bill open on the screen, in the bottom right would be the Activity section. Within there you would have to credit applied to the Bill. You would need to click into the PJ based, which is that discount given amount application transaction and delete this before you can delete the payment on the Bill.

If a transaction has come through via Bank Feeds, do match that transaction to the respective MYOB Essentials. Don't select to allocate that transaction, by doing so you may be increasing your expense/income and effectively double dipping.  If that has occurred, it is recommended that you go to Banking>>Bank Tranasctions>>Navigate to the required bank transaction and select the cross against the allocation of that transaction. When that has been unallocated, you can use the match function to match it to the relevant MYOB Essentials transaction.
