How do I record a part payment?

There may be occasions where you make or receive part of a payment such as an invoice, payslip etc. inniAccounts allows you to record and track part payments for easy reconciliation at a later date.

Where you have a pending payment in your Bookkeeping area you can match part of the payment. Any balance due will remain as a pending payment allowing you to keep track of it until it is paid. A common scenario is when you are not paid the full balance of an invoice.

Recording a part payment

In the example below an invoice has been submitted for £1,200 including VAT but only £1,000 has been paid, i.e. the 20% VAT has not been paid. This scenario may occur where you are waiting for VAT registration and your client withholds the payment of VAT. A pending payment for the invoice is listed in the Bookkeeping area.

  1. To match a part payment click the match button.
