I have recently started bookkeeping for a small sole trader who is not VAT registered (under threshold).
He was using Excel spreadsheets for income and expenditure and the last accounts were made from these by his accountant for part year 2015-16. Since then he has not kept up to date books and so I’m helping starting from April 2016 for 16-17 FY. However one of his suppliers has issued a credit note that must relate to an invoice in the previous year. I’m used to using other systems where you can just raise a credit note onto a supplier account and not have to ‘see’ an invoice already on the supplier ledger to allocate against, as seems to be the case with Quickfile.
At this point I’m not sure whether or not he had paid the original invoice by the time the credit note was issued.
Is there an easy solution to this?
